Understanding MG Electronic Vehicle Charging

MG electric vehicles come equipped with charging options. The most prevalent are AC Charging and DC Charging.

  • Standard AC Charging

    MG Electric vehicles are usually built-in with an AC charger. This charger allows you to charge from a standard household power outlet. The speed of this charger is slower than DC and takes around overnight or more to fully charge your battery.

  • DC Rapid Charging

    MG Electric Vehicles supports DC rapid charging. This charger allows you to charge your vehicle in less time compared to AC standard charging. Depending upon the voltage and power, you can charge it at the station or install a separate voltage outlet for fast charging.

MG Electric Vehicle Charging Time

The charging time of MG Electric Vehicle depends on several factors like battery capacity, charging, method and state of battery and charger. Here is the general average time:

  • Standard AC charging

    Charging an MG Electric Vehicle using a standard AC charger can take around 6 to 8 hours to charge from empty to full using a standard household charging point. However, this can vary based on the model, battery size and battery health.

  • DC Rapid Charging

    Charging an MG Electric Vehicle using a DC rapid charger can take around 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes, depending upon the charging station power output and model of the MG Electric Vehicle. On average, you can charge 80% of capacity in 30 minutes in high power outlet.

It is also important to note that the time chargers take can be influenced by external factors like temperature outside, battery and charging infrastructure capacity. For precise information, refer to your model-specific user manual.
