Charging on the Go

Charging on the Go

While charging at home is a convenience exclusive to EVs, anyone who’s ever driven is used to having to give their vehicle some juice while on the road. That’s where public charging stations equipped with Level 2 and/or DC fast chargers come into play.

Level 2 Public Charging

Most public charging stations are equipped with Level 2 charging—the same technology as your Level 2 charger at home. These are also known as “destination chargers” and can be found at malls, restaurants or near local businesses so you can charge your vehicle while going about your day.

DC Fast Chargers

Many public charging stations are also equipped with DC fast chargers which offer the quickest charge times - providing 130km of range in about 10 minutes, or bringing your battery from 10% - 80% in 30 minutes**. These are ideal for when you need to recharge quickly in the middle of a longer trip and you can think of them like an electric gas station, often found at public service stations near highways.

**Estimated charging times are provided as a reference only. Charging times will vary and depend on a variety of factors, including ambient temperature, charger type, battery condition and initial state of charge, vehicle condition and others. Frequent and consecutive fast charging can permanently decrease battery capacity.

Finding Public Chargers

You can use the navigation system in your ID.4 or the Electrify Canada app to find your nearest DC fast charger or public Level 2 charger, and even check the availability for charging at stations close by.

Public Charging Costs

What about paying at the electric pump? Well, as an ID.4 owner, you’ll receive 4 years or up to 1400 kWh of complimentary DC fast charging – whichever your reach first – on the Electrify Canada network.***
