Estimated charge time against 32 amp power supply is approx. 13 hours from flat to fully charged. An overnight 8 hour charge will give you approx. 240km of range. Charging stations outside of your home will have a varying kW charge, however are generally at a 50 kW level, allowing a full charge from flat in a little under 2 hours.
