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.

Europe

Charging an EV in Europe differs by country. Some European countries primarily use 1-phase connections to the grid, while other countries are almost exclusively using a 3-phase connection. The table below shows all possible ways the Nissan Leaf can be charged, but some modes of charging might not be widely available in certain countries.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Standard 3.6 kW On-Board Charger
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 18h30m 7 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.6 kW † 11h30m 12 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.6 kW † 11h45m 11 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.6 kW † 11h45m 11 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.6 kW † 11h45m 11 mph

Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 18h30m 7 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 11h30m 12 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x29A 6.6 kW † 6h30m 21 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW † 11h30m 12 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 1x29A 6.6 kW † 6h30m 21 mph

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

* = Optional in some countries, standard in others. Check local specifications for details.

Fast 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%
