We supply this type of cable as standard with your vehicle, as it’s the recommended method for charging any electrified vehicle. This type of charging and socket was designed specifically for electric vehicles. It’s faster to charge than using a domestic plug, and depending on the chargepoint, you can get specific data on the amount of power your vehicle is taking.
You can plug into different rated power sockets, but your vehicle will charge at the maximum rate of power available, capped by the capacity of the vehicle on board charger.
7kW is the level of power that is most commonplace and suitable for UK domestic properties installing chargepoints. At this rate, your PCD electric vehicle would fully charge in 7.5 hours.
Three phase power is not something which is common at all in the UK at domestic properties, so the 11kW three phase on board charger won’t be suitable for most customers. However, if you do have access to three phase power, you will want to consider ordering the factory option of an 11kW on board charger, as this will enable you to charge your vehicle faster – in as little as 5 hours.
We highly recommend that electric vehicle customers install a chargepoint at their home as their daily charging solution. Our charging partner is Pod Point, who are fully approved under the government Homecharge scheme. This means if you have off street parking, you can usually benefit from grant funding of £500 towards the cost of a home chargepoint.
