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 e+. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.
NOTE: Nissan has not released details about the on-board charger of the Leaf. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.
|Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||30h45m||7 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||19h15m||12 mph|

|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW †||19h15m||12 mph|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||230V / 1x29A||6.6 kW †||10h45m||21 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 e+.
- 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%
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Avg. Power||Time||Rate|
|CHAdeMO (50 kW DC)||50 kW||45 kW||60 min||150 mph|
|CHAdeMO (100 kW DC)||100 kW||70 kW †||40 min||230 mph|
|CHAdeMO (175 kW DC)||100 kW †||70 kW †||40 min||230 mph|
† = Limited by fastcharge capabilities of vehicle
NOTE: Most rapid charges are currently limited to 50 kW. Chargers with more power are expected in the near future.
All about the Nissan Leaf e+
The Nissan Leaf e+ has an On The Road Price (OTR) of £40,295. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Nissan Leaf e+ is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Nissan Leaf e+ is £36,795.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Nissan Leaf e+ is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Nissan Leaf e+ is 160 kW (215 hp). The maximum torque is 251 lb-ft. The Nissan Leaf e+ is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in an estimated 7.0 seconds. The estimated top speed is 93 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Nissan Leaf e+ has a total capacity of 62 kWh. The usable capacity is 60 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 220 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 155 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 330 mi.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 6.6 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 10 hours 45 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 30 hours 45 minutes.
Rapid charging is possible through a CHAdeMO connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 100 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 70 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 40 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 150 miles of range.
The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Nissan Leaf e+ is about 270 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 148 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 385 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 180 Wh per mile.
The Nissan Leaf e+ 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.
