Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Nissan Leaf 30 kWh. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 1 (Yazaki - SAE J1772)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 12h15m 9 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 7h45m 14 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.6 kW † 8 hours 14 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.6 kW † 8 hours 14 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.6 kW † 8 hours 14 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Nissan Leaf 30 kWh.

  • Max. Power: maximum charging power the vehicle can use
  • Avg. Power: average charging power over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%

All about the Nissan Leaf 30 kWh

No longer available

This electric vehicle is no longer available. The Nissan Leaf 30 kWh was available from September 2015 until February 2018. Financial data like price, leasing and company car tax were applicable to the final year of availability of the Nissan Leaf 30 kWh.

A new model of the Nissan Leaf 30 kWh (2015) is available: Nissan Leaf (2018).

Pricing

The Nissan Leaf 30 kWh has a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £30,325 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £30,290. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Nissan Leaf 30 kWh is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £4,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Nissan Leaf 30 kWh is £25,790.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Nissan Leaf 30 kWh is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Nissan Leaf 30 kWh is 80 kW (107 hp). The maximum torque is 187 lb-ft. The Nissan Leaf 30 kWh is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 11.5 seconds. The top speed is 89 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Nissan Leaf 30 kWh has a total capacity of 30 kWh. The usable capacity is 28 kWh (estimate). A range of about 105 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 75 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 160 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 1 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 3.6 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 8 hours. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 12 hours 15 minutes.

Rapid charging is possible through a CHAdeMO connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 50 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 45 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 30 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 70 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Nissan Leaf 30 kWh is about 265 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 152 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 370 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 175 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Nissan Leaf 30 kWh emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
