EV Charging Levels Explained

Mercedes-EQ Level 1 Charger

Level 1 Charging

The first type of charging is available for plug-in hybrids and essentially all EVs. Known as Level 1 EVSE, this type of charger is often included with the purchase of your new PHEV or EV. Since they’re compatible with a common 120-volt household AC outlet, they’re intended primarily for charging plug-in hybrids overnight and for their ease of use when a public charging station can’t be found. However, they’re typically rated for only 2 to 5 miles of range per hour of charging time. This means they’re best suited for emergency situations or topping off a PHEV overnight. Their small size adds portability and convenience when traveling as well.

Mercedes-EQ Level 2 Charging

Level 2 Charging

If you’re searching for the perfect solution for keeping your new EV fully charged and ready for whatever the day has in store, consider a Level 2 charging station. These types of charging stations can be installed in your garage or driveway once there is access to a 240V AC outlet. Perfect for daily driving your EV, Level 2 charging can add anywhere between 10 to 60 miles of EV range to your vehicle per hour of charge time. It’s important to remember that installation of a Level 2 charging station requires a dedicated electrical circuit of 20 to 100 amps in addition to other specialized equipment.

Fortunately, the majority of residential homes have 240V electrical service for larger appliances like air conditioners, electric dryers, or electric ranges. This is a primary reason that you’ll need a licensed electrician to properly install your home charging station to comply with local, state, and national regulations. Typically, home charging stations are located inside a garage. However, there are outdoor options for installing a freestanding station in your driveway.

Mercedes-EQ Public Charging Station

Level 3 Charging

Finally, Mercedes-Benz electric vehicles come equipped with Level 3 charging capabilities. Also known as 480V DC Fast Charging, Level 3 is the ultimate solution for charging as quickly as possible. You’ll most likely find public fast charging stations near high-traffic areas like rest stops, large shopping retailers, or office complexes. Thanks to this rapidly growing network of fast charging stations, it’s now possible to travel from coast-to-coast using solely electric power. With Mercedes-Benz, the future of all-electric travel has never been brighter.
