Where Can I Charge My Electric Car?

EV Charging Station with Chevy Models

Before you make the switch to an EV, or even after you’ve done so, you may be curious to learn more about your electric car charger options. One reliable option in one of the Overland Park area electric car charging stations or in the home electric car charger you had installed in your very own garage. Explore the variety of electric car chargers and where you can find them around town with the Hendrick Chevrolet Shawnee Mission team, and keep your electric vehicle’s battery at full capacity.



Where Can I Charge My Electric Car Near Kansas City?

There are a variety of options for Shawnee Mission drivers to charge their Chevrolet model. One of the most reliable options is having an electric car charger installed at home. You can also opt for one of the electric car charging stations located around town. Here are the three different charging options available for drivers in the Overland Park area:

  1. Domestic Outlet Home Charging (Regular Outlet) (Level 1 Charging): This is a standard grounded three-prong outlet that runs 110/120V. Your electric vehicle’s battery will take about 24 hours to fully charge. It’s not the fastest option, but it’s good for charging up overnight.
  2. Installed Brand-Approved Domestic Charging (Level 2 Charging): This is traditionally a 240V+ charging option and needs to be professionally installed by an electrician. It can provide a faster charging time than a Level 1 option, and can charge your electric vehicle’s battery in a few short hours. The type of charger and vehicle you have will determine the exact speed for charging, but some Level 2 home chargers can get a vehicle’s battery to 80% in about 30-40 minutes.
  3. Public Charging/DC Fast Charging (Level 2 Charging): You can find this type of charger all around town in Merriam, at stores, gas stations, malls, and more. You can typically expect public electric car charging stations to charge your vehicle’s battery in about half an hour.
