Charging guide

Home and Destination Charging (0 → 100%)

Are you aware that there are two ways to charge your Seres 3? You have the option to either plug it into a regular wall outlet or use a charging station. However, when you're out and about, public charging can only be done by using a charging station as plugging into a wall outlet won't suffice. The speed at which your electric vehicle (EV) charges is dependent on the type of charging station or Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) that you use, as well as your EV's maximum charging capacity. Refer to the table below for a breakdown of all available charging choices for your Seres 3, as well as an estimate of the time it will take to fully charge the battery from empty.


Charging an electric vehicle (EV) in Europe can differ from country to country. Some European countries extensively use 1-phase connections to the grid, while others mainly utilize a 3-phase connection. The table below shows all the possible ways to charge a Seres 3, but specific charging modes may not be available in some countries. It is recommended to consult with your local electric vehicle charging networks to identify which charging options are accessible to you.

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)

Fast charging is essential to increase the distance you can travel by adding the maximum amount of range in the shortest possible time. Once the battery reaches an 80% state-of-charge, charging power will decrease noticeably. Therefore, a typical fast charge rarely exceeds an 80% SoC. The speed at which an electric vehicle charges depends on both the charging station used and the maximum charging power that the EV can handle. The table below provides a detailed summary of how to quickly charge the Seres 3.

  • 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%
