Electric vehicles sales are booming on the scene in the U.S. in the last few years and we are seeing charging locations popping up all over Maryland. The automotive industry projects that over half of all cars sold by 2030 will be electric vehicles. On average, over the last few years, the US sells around 15 million vehicles per year, to put that in perspective. This number will continue to increase every year since most indications point to higher sales, increased interest, and increased trust in electrified vehicles. The number of used EVs will also increase as people trade out their old EVs for newer ones.

Electric vehicles have many benefits that consumers are gravitating to. The main reason is that they do not consume fuel. So, there is an immediate impact on an individual’s pocketbook, especially with today’s erratic gas prices. Some of the other great perks of the new EVs are the performance. Some of the fastest vehicles in the world are now EVs. The performance these vehicles are producing sometimes match or even beat out some of the world most expensive hyper cars. It quite an amazing feat. Especially, since the EV has really only been in mass production for the last few years.
Electric vehicles are also just fun to drive. EVs have immediate torque and no transmission. So, you simply press the “Gas” pedal and you’re off! EVs are becoming increasingly easier to charge with new superchargers popping up all over the country. Additionally, you can charge your vehicle from the comfort of your own home.
There are three levels of home EV charging stations. Each level will determine how fast the vehicle can be charged:
These chargers typically plug into a household 120-volt outlet—like you’d plug your phone or laptop into. Given that it takes a few hours to charge your phone when plugged into such an outlet, it should be no surprise that a Level 1 charger will take a long time to charge the battery in your hybrid or electric car—typically adding only 3 to 5 miles per hour of charging. You can do the math on how long it will take to get a full charge on your EV.
If you’re driving a full-electric vehicle you’re going to want regular access to a Level 2 charger at home. Running on a 220-volt outlet, similar to what you’d plug your clothes dryer into, a Level 2 charger can deliver 12 to 80 miles of charge per hour. Read our guide on Level 2 EV Chargers.
These types of chargers are normally found in commercial settings. Such as places like gas stations, Costco, Malls etc. Level III are the fastest way to charge your car. However, you do pay more for the charge then you would at your home.
