Charging at home
Charging your Nissan LEAF® at home is easy with a 240-volt home charging dock. All you have to do is plug it in. It takes about four hours [*] to go from empty to a full charge with the 6.6 kW onboard charger [*]—and you don’t have to wait for the battery to be completely drained to charge it. It also comes standard with a 110-volt charger that plugs into any regular outlet.
Charging At Home
YOUR GARAGE IS THE NEW FILLING STATION
How much are you going to "spend" there? Good question. The average driver should only see a moderate bump in their monthly electricity bill. To maximize savings, you can charge your Nissan LEAF® during off-peak hours when electricity rates are at their lowest, depending upon your utility provider. Some providers may even offer Nissan LEAF® owners a discounted rate.Find your utility provider

[*] Use ChargePoint’s Network when you're on the go to find and get directions to charging stations, check availability, pricing, and even reserve a charging station. This network is rapidly expanding, and everyday more locations are equipped with the 480V quick charger capable of charging your Nissan LEAF® in about 30 minutes.
