There are two main options to speed up charging.
- 16a Type 2 Charger. This requires the install of a Blue caravan type socket. It will double the current charge speed and put around 20km per hour of range on to the car.
- The recommended option is to install a Wall box EV charger. There are a few options for this depending if you have three phase or single phase at home. Most houses only have single phase. Thes will put around 40km of range in to the car for every hour plugged in.
