Charging

Topping up the battery at home is the most convenient and inexpensive way to charge an electric car.

Topping up the battery at home is the most convenient and inexpensive way to charge an electric car.

Even though it’s possible to plug an electric car into a regular mains socket, this should only be done temporarily. The high current demand of an EV calls for the use of a dedicated charging station to avoid overly long charging times and going against safety regulations. A home EV-charging solution also offers plenty of convenience. Park the car, connect the cable and go about your business.

With an intelligent home charging solution, you can benefit from more control to get the most from your EV. Certain charging stations, such as Evnex's E2 wall box, come with features like emissions tracking, the choice to prioritise cleaner electricity such as solar, and intelligent monitoring of overall home energy use while you charge. This makes home charging a safe, cost-effective and environmentally-conscious option.

We’ve partnered with Evnex to offer Polestar Australia customers a special price on their home chargers.

An EV home charger can be easily mounted on an existing wall and connected to the wiring that’s already there. The other option is to mount it on a post, allowing for more freedom of placement. Expect slightly higher installation costs for the latter, as it will usually require a new underground mains connection.

Choice paralysis is real, and the variety of home charging options is no exception. To simplify matters, we’ve narrowed it down to a single type of EV charger, considering the set-up of the electricity supply and electric car compatibility. All Polestar cars have the right specifications for this type of charger.
