In most cases, customers will charge their vehicles at home or at work, using Wall-box1 chargers. A complete charge will take 6 to 9 hours, overnight or during office hours, making charging time "transparent" for the driver. Twizy recharges in 3h30 on a domestic socket.
Public charging stations are being installed in the street, in shopping centre parking lots, managed car parks, service stations etc. EV customers can top up their vehicles here and can fully charge or boost it here. The number of miles added depends on the power supplied by the charging station (from 3 to 43 kW) and the power accepted by the vehicle.
Thanks to its on-board "Chameleon" charger, ZOE accepts the full power delivered by the charging spot for a recharge through a unique plug on car side between 30 minutes to 9 hours.
From time to time, EVs can also be recharged at a standard domestic socket using the occasional charging cable supplied as an option or accessory with Kangoo Z.E. and Fluence Z.E. The cable will be available in the future with ZOE.
