Charging your hybrid or electric vehicle from a standard household socket is very simple. All you need is the supplied home charging cable and a plug to hand.

This isn't the fastest method due to limited power from household outlets, but if you charge your EV overnight, it will usually be charged for the next day.

Since no additional equipment is required, it is an affordable and accessible way to charge an electric car at home. Plus, you can save even more by choosing a lower electricity rate during off-peak times.


n EV home charging station, such as the Ford Wallbox, is a dedicated charger for your electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle . As the name indicates, this is a wall-mounted unit typically including an integrated electric vehicle charging cable. It's the fastest home charging option, being up to five times faster than charging from a standard household outlet.
