What is DC Fast Charging?
As car shoppers weigh the pros and cons of electric vehicles (EVs), charging speed plays an important factor in their buying decisions. How long it takes to charge an EV can significantly impact a vehicle owner's daily routine. To that end, there are three levels of charging speed currently available for EVs: Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3, which is also known as DC fast charging (DCFC).
Being the fastest of the three levels, DCFC is ideal for traveling extended distances that require short recharge stops along the way. As EV ranges get longer and EV infrastructure becomes more prevalent, DCFC could be the key for EV owners to take longer road trips and travel further along America's highways in a more practical and time-efficient manner.
