Charging & Range


The Nissan LEAF® is built with nine range-maximizing features that help you go farther — up to 107 miles on every charge [*]. Its advanced technology is so smart it adjusts constantly to reflect the changes in your battery charge levels—so you’ll always know when it’s time to plug-in.

Feel Electric App

Download the Nissan Leaf Feel Electric App Give the tires a
virtual kick

Introducing FEEL ELECTRIC, the new app that shows you how easily Nissan LEAF® fits into your life. The app compares your own vehicle with the Nissan LEAF®, showing you how much you could save, how far you could go and where to find charging stations near you, so you can virtually experience what it’s really like to drive electric. It's free to download, so go ahead—start your electric journey.



Information is power. Well, so is electricity, obviously, but you know what we mean. The Nissan LEAF® gives you all the information you need to get where you are going: available range, power being used and power being generated, battery charge, and charging times. It’s all right there on the easy-to-read Multi-Function Display Drive Computer.

Regenerative Braking

Every time you coast or apply the brakes in the Nissan LEAF®, the electric motor acts as an electric generator, converting energy that would otherwise be wasted into battery energy. So even when you're slowing down, you're charging up.

Power Limitation Mode

In the event that your battery becomes critically low, power limitation mode will automatically minimize your energy consumption and reduce your speed to help you get to a charging dock.

Eco Drive Indicator

The meter displays an illustrated ECO driving level calculated from conditions such as accelerator pedal and brake pedal operations, air conditioner usage and idling time of the electric motor.

Power Meter

Indicates the regeneration power level provided to the Li-ion battery system and the energy (power) consumption level when driving.

Estimated Range

When your battery has 4kWh remaining, your empty warning light will come on. A notification on your screen will indicate where to find all charging stations within range.

  • Climate control

    The air conditioner and heater draw energy from the battery. Use a moderate temperature setting inside the cabin. Using the available Nissan LEAF® NissanConnectSM EV app or website, remotely pre-condition your vehicle while it's plugged in and draw power from the grid. [*]

  • Speed

    Higher speeds require more energy to overcome air resistance. Drive at constant, moderate speeds. Smooth acceleration and deceleration can extend your range.

  • Driving Style

    Eco driving reduces air conditioning output, is more efficient, and can improve your range—up to 10%. Switch to Eco Mode while driving to conserve energy. To increase regenerative braking, switch to B-Mode.

  • Cargo and Topography

    Heavy cargo and driving up steep long inclines can reduce range. Plan your trip beforehand and utilize destination charging.

  • Destination public charging

    With the ever-increasing EV Infrastructure, you can plan trips based on the availability of public charging stations [*] near your destination. Use the LEAF EZ-ChargeSM app [*] map to find charging stations along your route.


We got your back

Nissan LEAF® provides you with plenty of info to help you get the most out of every charge. On the dash, the power meter tells you how much power you are using or gaining.

The low battery warning lights tell you well in advance if you are getting low, and the State of Charge meter regularly updates your charge status based on power use and your current driving style. And with available NissanConnectSM EV, you can plan your trip ahead of time to avoid any trouble.
