EV Specifications

The chart below provides more detailed information about each electric vehicle currently available for sale in Washington State.  Here’s a description of the attributes being presented:

  • Vehicle Type – is the vehicle powered only by batteries (All Electric) or does it have an on-board gas engine that serves as an electric generator to extend the range of vehicle using gasoline (All Electric w/Gas Generator).
  • Battery Pack Size – the amount of electrical energy stored in the vehicles primary battery, measured in kWHr.  Vehicles typically get 3-4 miles to the kWHr in real world driving so that will give you an idea of the rough range for a given battery pack size.
  • Vehicle Charger – the maximum rate of charge at which the vehicle was designed to charge.  Higher kW charging rates generally means the vehicle can be charged more quickly using any charger.
  • Max EPA Range (Battery Only) – the maximum distance you can travel on battery alone as measured by the EPA.
  • Hours to Charge Battery to 80% using DC Fast Charger – this is the approximate number of hours required to charge the vehicle to 80% of it’s stated Battery Capacity from a completely discharged battery (i.e. empty battery).  DC Fast Chargers are designed to charge vehicles only to 80% of battery capacity because fast charging beyond that can damage the battery.
  • Hours to Charge Battery to 100% using 110V Outlet – this is the approximate number of hours required to charge the vehicle to 100% of it’s stated Battery Capacity from a completely discharged battery (i.e. empty battery) when using a normal 110V outlet.
  • Hours to Charge Battery to 100% using a Level II Charger – this is the approximate number of hours required to charge the vehicle to 100% of it’s stated Battery Capacity from a completely discharged battery (i.e. empty battery) when using a 220V Level II charger.
