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. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 20 hours 7 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 12h30m 12 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x29A 6.6 kW † 7 hours 21 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW † 12h30m 12 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 1x29A 6.6 kW † 7 hours 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.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point 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%
CHAdeMO
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CHAdeMO (50 kW DC) 46 kW † 40 kW † 43 min 140 mph
CHAdeMO (100 kW DC) 46 kW † 40 kW † 43 min 140 mph

† = Limited by charging capabilities of vehicle

Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.

All about the Nissan Leaf

Pricing

The Nissan Leaf has a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £28,440 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £28,495. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Nissan Leaf is eligible for a Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £1,500. The grant will be applied to the invoice of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Nissan Leaf is £26,995.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Nissan Leaf is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Nissan Leaf is 110 kW (148 hp). The maximum torque is 236 lb-ft. The Nissan Leaf is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 7.9 seconds. The top speed is 89 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Nissan Leaf has a total capacity of 40 kWh. The usable capacity is 39 kWh. An estimated range of about 145 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 105 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 220 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 7 hours. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 20 hours.

Rapid charging is possible through a CHAdeMO connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 46 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 40 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 45 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 100 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Nissan Leaf is about 269 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 150 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 371 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 177 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Nissan Leaf 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.
