At home

When charging at home it takes as little as 3 hours and 33 minutes^^ to power up a CUPRA e-HYBRID using a home wallbox charger. Or up to 5 hours 48 minutes^^ with a conventional plug. 

When you decide to install a charger at home, it’s best to go through an authorised installer like Pod Point. They will guide you through the whole process, from the pre-installation consultation through to the demonstration once the work has been done. 

Pod Point also include a free three-year warranty and Wi-Fi connectivity* for real-time updates.

Away from home

Away from home, you can top up easily at any number of the charging stations available across the UK via the Easy Charging App. With one card, you have the ability to charge your CUPRA in just 3h^^.

▪ Search your local area through the App to display the nearest charging points on your map.

▪ Search charging points by availability, charging performance and socket type, etc.

▪ Make all your payments easily with one card and receive a single, integrated monthly invoice.

Factors affecting the charging speed

Three main factors influence how long it takes for your electric vehicle to charge:


Vehicle charging capabilities

Your electric vehicle’s maximum charge rate is set by its battery and the on-board charger which regulates the amount of power drawn from a particular source. On-board chargers usually range in capacity from 3kW to 22kW. Charge time can also be affected by whether AC or DC is being used.

Power from the charging unit

Your electric vehicle cannot charge faster than the charging unit’s maximum capacity. This means if you’re charging with AC and your car has a capacity of 11kW but is plugged into a 7kW unit, it will charge at 7kW.

Pod Point also include a free three-year warranty and Wi-Fi connectivity* for real-time updates.

Battery size

As you might expect, the larger the battery the longer it’ll take to charge. For example an 20 kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery will take around 2-3 hours to charge with a 7kW charger, a 40kWh battery would take around twice as long.

^^ Charging times vary in relation to the following factors: external and battery temperature, maximum voltage of your charger system and its current condition, as well as battery condition and the use of other electrical equipment in the car during charge.
