Are you aware that you can charge your Opel Astra Electric in two ways? You can either use a standard wall socket or a charging station. However, while you are on the road, public charging would require the use of a charging station. A wall socket won't suffice in that scenario. The speed at which your electric vehicle charges is determined by the type of charging station or Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) utilized, as well as your EV's maximum charging capacity. Please consult the chart below for information on available charging options for the Opel Astra Electric, including the estimated duration necessary to charge your battery from empty to full.
Charging an electric vehicle (EV) in Europe can differ depending on the country, as some countries mainly use 1-phase connections while others rely on a 3-phase connection. To charge an Opel Astra Electric, there are various charging modes available, as shown in the table below. Please note that certain charging modes may not be available in certain countries. It is recommended to check with your local EV charging networks to find out which charging options are accessible to you.
Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Wall Plug (2.3 kW)
230V / 1x10A
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)
230V / 1x16A
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)
230V / 1x32A
3-phase 16A (11 kW)
400V / 3x16A
3-phase 32A (22 kW)
400V / 3x16A
11 kW †
† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.
Fast Charging (10 → 80%)
Quick charging is crucial for increasing the range of your trip by adding the greatest amount of charge in the least amount of time. It's important to keep in mind that once an electric vehicle reaches 80% state-of-charge, charging speed will drop significantly. Therefore, rapid charging usually doesn't surpass 80% SoC. The rate at which an electric car can be charged is determined by both the charging station and the maximum charging power that the EV can handle. The table below offers a thorough guide for fast charging the Opel Astra Electric.
Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
