So many ways to charge, only one ID.4 

Level 1 charging. Up to 5km charge an hour. Home outlet charging.

This is your entry into electric vehicle charging. Every ID.4 purchase comes equipped with a Level 1 120v charging cable. It takes the longest to charge because you’re getting power from a common household outlet. If you want to fill up faster at home, upgrading to a wall box like the HomeStation™  (a Level 2 charger) is your best bet. 

Level 2 charging. Up to 50km charge an hour. Home charging & public charging.

At 240v of power, Level 2 charging is what most people use to charge their EVs at home because it’s perfect for overnight charging as you can reach a full charge in about 8 hours. To get full Level 2 charging in your home, you can either use a non-permanent 2-in-1 cable that lets you charge from a 240v outlet found in most households, or a dedicated Level 2 home charger that can be plugged into a NEMA 14-50 outlet or hardwired by a licensed electrician. 

Luckily, finding and installing the right Level 2 home charger can be done quickly as there are now plenty of available options on the market, like the HomeStation™ by Electrify Home. With the HomeStation™ , you will be able to charge your ID.4 up to 6.8x faster than your Level 1 charging cable (at 40 amps). The charger’s maximum output can be configured during installation for 40 amps, 32 amps, or 16 amps to fit almost any home electrical panel* and the unit can be installed indoor or outdoor due to its usage rating (NEMA 3R).

With HomeStation™  you can manage your Level 2 charger via the Electrify Canada app with remote start and stop and scheduling. The app will also connect you to Electrify Canada’s public charging network, the largest in Canada.

You can also connect to your smart home device - Amazon Alexa™ or Google Assistant™ (under development) - allowing you to control your HomeStation™ with your voice.

HomeStation™  is ENERGY STAR® Certified, comes with a three-year limited warranty (parts only) and 24-hour customer support via a dedicated number.

Getting set up with Level 2 charging before your ID.4 arrives is a smart idea and a great way to plan for your new electric future.

*We recommend you consult a licensed electrician to perform all installations, and any hardwiring of the charger.

Level 3 charging. 100km of charge in about 10 minutes. Public charging.

Level 3 charging gives you up to 350vW of power and is by far the fastest way to charge your ID.4. As of right now, Level 3 chargers are mostly found in public, thankfully the ID.4 is compatible with every one of them. Level 3 Electrify CanadaOpens an external link chargers are quickly expanding across Canada and with an ID.4, you get 3 years of unlimited DC Fast Charging sessions at Electrify Canada chargers at no additional cost.
