All EVs equipped with a Type 2 connector can be charged using a Type 2 / Type 2 charging cable. This is the most common cable in Europe.The main vehicles compatible with the Type 2 / Type 2 charging cable are: BMW i3, Cupra Born, Dacia Spring, Fiat 500e, Hyundai Kona, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia EV6, Kia e-Niro, Lexus UX 300e, MG 4, Mini Cooper SE, Nissan Leaf, Peugeot e-208, Renault Megane E-Tech, Renault Zoe, Tesla Model Y, etc. Why not check out your EV’s compatibility on our Vehicles page before purchasing your Type 2 / Type 2 cable?
7kW and 22kW charging cables are compatible with all EVs equipped with a Type 2 connector. For optimum, fast charging for EVs with a charging capacity above 7kW (three-phase), we advise you to buy a 22kW T2 / T2 cable. EVs with a charging capacity of 7kW (single-phase) won’t be able to charge any faster with a 22kW Type 2 / Type 2 cable since the power rating of your vehicle automatically restricts the charging capacity.
To charge at full capacity at either single-phase or three-phase charging points, we recommend purchasing a 22kW Type 2 / Type 2 charging cable. Charging with an 11kW cable on a single-phase charging station will be restricted to a power rating of 3.7kW.
You will be able to charge at a large number of charging stations in the UK, Ireland and across Europe with the Type 2 / Type 2 cable. You will find a widespread network of charging points on the public network, home charging stations and charging points on business premises and at holiday locations for you to charge your EV with a station-side Type 2 cable.
Charging times with a Type 2 Type 2 cable are dependent on the network you plug into, the charging capacity of your EV and can also vary according to the outdoor temperature in winter and summer. To estimate your EV’s charging time, we suggest you consult the charging time simulator on https://www.automobile-propre.com/simulateur-temps-de-recharge-voiture-electrique
