Infographics:Three types of charging for your electric vehicle

A normal, fast or semi-fast charging station?Which one should I install?What constraints are there?We summarise this in the form of infographics.

We spoke about this in this article. To recharge your electric vehicle via a charging station, there are three solutions on the market:

  • Normal recharging (from 3 to 6 hours)
  • Semi-fast recharging (1 to 2 hours)
  • Fast recharging (about 50 minutes)

In an ideal world, you would obviously want to recharge your car at home as quickly as possible, with the fewest constraints and at the best price!Unfortunately, in reality, it is not that simple. 

That is why we have designed a set of infographics detailing all aspects to be taken into account for each solution.We hope this will help you make the best choice for installing your electric vehicle charging station!

Recharging an electric vehicle: an update on the three solutions

As illustrated in the graphic below, there is no universal solution.

Normal recharging remains the easiest to set up at home.It is also the cheapest.In most cases, however, it is necessary to recharge the vehicle at night when other appliances in the house are not consuming electricity.

A semi-fast recharging system is ideal for installation in a company car park, allowing staff members to recharge their vehicles.

Fast charging, which is much more costly and technically more complicated to set up, is particularly suitable for public charging points.It allows motorists to charge their electric vehicles relatively quickly, even if it still takes much longer than filling a petrol tank!
