Are you hesitating about what cable length to go for? Don’t panic, our cable length guide is here to help you purchase the right cable for you.
What is the standard cable length for an electric car?
The most common cable length for EVs is 5 metres. The 5m cable is the standard length for cables provided by carmakers when you purchase your EV. This length is appropriate for most electric city cars and sedans, but may be too short for larger categories of cars.
How to choose the right cable length for my EV?
The 2m cable is recommended for two-wheeled vehicles. This is the perfect length to plug an electric motorcycle into charging points and then stash the cable away in a transport bag.
The 5m cable is recommended for smaller vehicles in the electric city car and sedan range.
The 7m cable is recommended for large EVs such as SUVs, estate cars and people carriers.
To choose the right cable length for your vehicle, you might find it useful to check out the table of cables lengths recommended according to vehicle type:
|City car, sedan||✓||✅||✓||✓||✓|
|SUV, people carrier, estate car||✓||✓||✓||✅||✓|
|Utility vehicle, van||✓||✓||✓||✅||✓|

The ✅ included in the table above indicate the optimal cable length for each vehicle category.
How can I avoid opting for a cable that’s too short?
To make sure you have a cable that’s long enough to cope with all situations, we recommend that you purchase a charging cable of a minimum length of 7 meters for your electric car.
If you are purchasing a cable for home charging, you can measure the length between the charging port on your car and the charging point and then add 2 metres so that the cable is not stressed during charging.
Is it just as fast to charge your EV with a long cable?
Yes, charging using a 15-metre cable will be just as fast as with a 2-metre cable. Mister EV’s custom-built cables are manufactured up to a maximum length of 15 metres for full-on charging in all safety.
Opting for a long charging cable is far safer than charging your EV using an extension cord.
