UNDERSTANDING THE CHARGING CAPABILITY OF YOUR DESIRED EV

UNDERSTANDING CHARGING OPTIONS FOR YOUR HOME§

  • All EVs can be charged at level 1 with a household electrical socket. However, this will only provide trickle charge which is much slower than level 2 (AC charging) and level 3 (DC fast charging).§
  • Identify what is the maximum power at which your desired EV can charge for level 2 (AC Charging). This will allow you to consider the appropriate home charging options.
    • This could be single phase (up to 7 kW)
    • Three phase (up to 11 kW)
    • Three phase (up to 22 kW)
       
  • Identify if your desired EV can be charged at level 3 (DC fast charging) and at which maximum power rating. This will allow to you consider the appropriate public chargers that you can use. 
  • If you reside in a villa or townhouse, most likely you would be able to install a level 2 charger in your garage 

    • The compound engineer or a certified installer would be able to check the electrical distribution board of your house to determine the available power for the EV charger to safely consume
    • Based on the availability of power you would be able to decide whether a single phase or three phase AC charger can be safely installed along with its specific electrical power capacity
       
  • If you reside in an apartment, you may want to check the following:

    • Does the apartment building/tower already have chargers installed
    • Are there any public chargers nearby for your regular usage
    • If none of the above two points apply, then you may want to inquire with the building/tower management to see if you can install a charger for your use
    • This will allow you to consider the appropriate public chargers that you can use.

HOME CHARGING 

  • Dual Level Charge Cord§ comes standard with the Hummer EV. Can be switched between level 1 and level 2 charging.
    • Plug in to your standard household electrical wall socket for Level 1 charging
    • Level 2 charging (up to 7kW) may require professional installation and requires an industrial power outlet. Please contact your local dealer for further details.

  • Level 2 home charger wall box§ capable of single to three phase charging up to 22 kW
    • Level 2 charging (up to 22kW) may require professional installation and requires an industrial power outlet
    • Approval for additional three phase power supply may be required from your local electricity authority
    • Please contact your local dealer for further details and available home charging options
    • Some countries require the home charger installation to be conducted by certified installers and may require additional approvals to be attained from the local electricity or other regulatory authorities.
    • Please ensure that you adhere to local regulations for safe and proper EV charger installation 

PUBLIC CHARGING

  • Charge using a level 2 (AC) public charging station
    • Public charging stations can be located using the myGMC app
    • Some public charging stations may require you to scan or use a designated charging app or card which may incur a fee
    • Different countries have varying charging operators – with each one possibly requiring their own designated app or card to be used
    • There are two types of public AC chargers
      • With integrated charging cable – with this type of charger you can just scan your charging card (if paid) and plug in the integrated type 2 cable into your vehicle
      • Without a charging cable – with this type of charger you would need to scan your charging card (if paid) and then plug in your own detachable type 2 to type 2 charging cable. Please contact your local dealer for details on how to purchase your own type 2 to type 2 charging cable.
         
  • DC Fast Charging (DCFC) Public Stations
    • Public charging stations can be located using the myGMC app
    • They are usually located in malls, petrol stations and highways
    • DCFC ranges from 50kW all the way up to 350kW – with most petrol stations in GCC currently having 50kW DCFCs
    • All DC fast charging stations have integrated charging cables due to the very high voltage and current flowing through them
    • You may be required to pay to use some of these public DC fast charging stations (varies from different charging operators in different countries) 

EV DO’S & DON’TS§

DO’S

  • Maintain your state of charge (SOC) between 20% - 80% for optimal battery performance
  • Appropriately plan your home charging cycle as per your daily commute
  • Take care of your EV’s battery. Keeping the battery at zero and repeatedly charging it will cause the battery to deplete more quickly.
  • Protect your EV from prolonged exposure to heat. Try to park your EV under a shade
  • While using a DC fast charger utilize the battery preconditioning feature for a more efficient fast charging experience
  • For optimal charging speeds keep the air conditioning switched off

DON’TS 

  • Avoid parking your EV directly under the sun as this can affect battery life 
  • Avoid waiting until the last minute to charge your EV to prevent range anxiety
  • Avoid driving over the charging cable to prevent damage of the equipment
  • Avoid plugging your EV charger into old/worn-out sockets
