Charging Station FAQ

With electric vehicles becoming more popular by the day, many drivers contact our Jaguar dealership to inquire about an electric vehicle charging station. If you have a question about an EV charging station that's not on our list of FAQs, we encourage you to do the same.


Which EVs Need External Charging?

If you're looking for a new Jaguar car for sale, you may have an interest in the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE SUV or the Jaguar F-PACE, which is a plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV). Both vehicles are considered EVs because they each have motors that send power directly to their wheels. Fully-electric vehicles and PHEVs both require the use of an external charger.

What is a Charging Station?

When drivers who have an interest in electric cars stop by our Jaguar dealership near Chicago, IL, some of them ask us to explain what an electric vehicle charging station is. An EV charging station is a location where motorists can charge their EV's battery.

It's possible to have a charging station installed in your garage or carport, but it's not necessary to do so because you can charge an EV using a household outlet. However, the 120-volt outlet is much slower than a Level 2 240-volt charger. Some public charging stations offer DC Fast Charging, which speeds up the charging process.

How Can I Find a Charging Station Close to My Current Location?

Just like you can research "Jaguar dealership near me" online, you can do the same to find a conveniently located public charging station. Alternatively, you can download an app such as ChargeHub to find a nearby EV charging station.

Is Charging an EV Less Expensive Than Filling Up with Gasoline?

Curious motorists often ask if it's less expensive to charge an EV than it is to fill a comparable gas-powered automobile with gasoline when they contact or visit Jaguar Northfield. While it's not free to charge an EV, it does cost substantially less than filling up with fuel.

Does It Take a Long Time to Charge an EV?

It depends on your charging method, with Level 1 being the slowest and Level 2 being the fastest device for home charging. But by using a public DC Fast Charger, you can charge an EV up to 80 percent capacity in as little as 20-30 minutes.

Now that you know all about EV charging stations, it's time to get you behind the wheel of a Jaguar EV. Visit our Jaguar finance center today and drive away a winner!
