EV wall chargers: which car companies offer home installation for electric car chargers?


If I buy an electric car, how can I charge it, and how much will it cost if I want to do it at home?

Electric cars are becoming more and more common on Australian shores, with over 21,000 electric cars sold to date in 2022 alone. 

But when you buy an electric car, how do you charge it and, more importantly, make it work within your daily routine?

While public charging infrastructure is getting better and better, many owners also choose to charge at home.

Here is a guide on the options available for home EV charging and which manufacturers offer a home charge setup. 

What you need to know about home EV chargers

Wall chargers for your electric vehicle are available with either single- or three-phase power outputs. Single phase is usually around 7kW output, while three-phase can be up to 22kW. Not all houses or apartments are fitted with three-phase power, so it’s best to check before ordering a wall charger for your property. 

Wall chargers installed in your home provide AC power and differ greatly from the electric car fast chargers you may find at a rest stop or in a shopping centre.

Public DC chargers are much faster, with most in New South Wales being 50kW. However, ultra-fast chargers can provide up to 350kW of power, charging vehicles suitable for this infrastructure to up to 80 percent within 20 minutes or less. 

There are several plugs for charging EVs, however Type 2 and combined charging system (CCS) plugs are most common in Australia.

Polestar does not manufacture its own wall charger. Instead, the Swedish brand recommends the services of several wall charge companies such as Jet Charge, EVSE Australia, Chargers Direct and Evolution Australia.

Other major players in the EV charger space

There are several Australian companies that work independently from the car manufacturers to install wall chargers in homes for those who have purchased an electric vehicle. 

If the manufacturer does not offer an in-house charging solution, these companies will be able to supply a home wall box for you. 

Jet Charge

Jet Charge states that it is the official partner for almost every vehicle manufacturer selling electric vehicles in Australia. 

Jet Charge offers both single-phase and three-phase charging options for your home. We found the price of a Wallpod with integrated charging cord for $1250. Jet Charge offers a five percent discount if it is installed through Jet Charge.

Another option offered by the charging company is apartment wall box setups, which are becoming increasingly popular. Jet Charge is able to facilitate an installation as well as monitor power usage in a communal building. 

EVSE chargers 

Another big player in the EV charging market is EVSE. A range of options are available, however installation bundles are available for around the $1800 mark for a 7.2kW system.

The Ocular system is compatible with a range of manufacturers including Audi, BMW, BYD, Hyundai, Kia and Polestar.
