How fast to fill up?

Now this is an interesting article: Which Electric Cars Charge the Fastest?

They rightly state at the very beginning:

The problem with asking “which EVs charge the fastest” is while some may think it’s a simple inquiry, it really isn’t. In fact, if we had to put asterisks on the highly qualified answers for the 10 electric cars sold in America, we’d need asterisks for the asterisks.

Even with all the clarifications it really doesn’t matter: As long as the car is fully charged in the morning I’m a happy camper. Granted if your chores for the day will take you further than the range of a full battery then you will be figuring on how much you can charge during the day. For the vast majority of my daily driving, though, I’m well within the range of a charge on the battery.

The ultimate question really is “can it charge overnight” which generally means can it fully charge up from empty within about 8 hours or so. All of the electric cars today can answer yes to that–at least with a Level 2 or better charger.
