Charging guide

Home and Destination Charging (0 → 100%)

Did you know that there are two ways to charge your Nissan Leaf? You have the option of using a regular wall plug or a charging station. However, when you're away from home, public charging can only be carried out by utilizing a charging station as a regular wall plug is insufficient. The amount of time required to recharge your EV depends on the type of charging station or Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) you use, as well as your EV's maximum charging capacity. To assist you in selecting the most appropriate charging option for your Nissan Leaf, we have compiled a table below that summarizes all of the available charging options and the estimated time required to charge your battery from empty to full.


Charging methods for Electric Vehicles (EVs) in Europe vary across different countries. While some European countries rely on 1-phase connections to the grid, others utilize 3-phase connections. The table provided displays all the available charging options for Nissan Leaf. However, it is important to note that certain charging modes may not be available in some countries. To ascertain the charging options that you have, kindly contact your local electric vehicle charging networks.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)

Rapid charging is essential in order to extend your journey's range by rapidly adding the maximum possible range within the shortest time frame. As soon as the state-of-charge reaches 80%, the charging capacity will start to decline significantly. Typically, rapid charging only charges the EV up to 80% of the state-of-charge. The charging speed of an electric vehicle will ultimately depend on both the charging station in use and the maximum charging power capacity of the EV. For a comprehensive overview of rapid charging for the Nissan Leaf, please refer to the table provided below.

  • 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%
