With cables conveniently included, owners can access a growing number of public AC and DC chargers across Australia. Option to install a home fast-charging station via JET Charge[C11] is available at an additional cost[M1].

CHARGING TIPS

Knowledge for the road ahead

Get smart about charging to save time and energy, and enjoy all the benefits electrified ownership has to offer.

HEV

Install fast charger at home

An at-home AC fast charger is the most convenient way to ensure a fully charged vehicle while prolonging the vehicle’s battery life. Ask your local Dealer about installing one via JET Charge[C11] at an additional cost[M1].

HEV

Charge during off-peak hours

For Level 1 and 2 home charging, your power usage will be reflected on the electricity bill from your energy provider. Reduce it and save by choosing off-peak times to charge your vehicle, to receive a lower rate.

HEV

Limit fast charging

It is recommended to use AC charging options when they are available. Frequent use of DC fast charging can impact battery performance and durability.

HEV

Manage charging speed

The last 20% capacity of a lithium-ion battery takes much longer to charge, so you can get more power in less time by charging to 80% and stopping there. Even if it means you need to charge sooner or more often.
