Nissan LEAF kicks everything up a notch. From 40% more range than the previous generation, to a boost in power to get you there quicker, to an easier way to charge, you’ll always look forward to the next exhilarating drive.
HOW CAN YOU EXTEND YOUR RANGE?
GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR CHARGE
Choose ECO Mode to limit the motor’s output and conserve energy. It also slightly increases regenerative braking, all of which helps you achieve the best possible range.
B Mode: Recover Braking Energy
Really serious about maxing out your range? You can also activate B Mode. This delivers more aggressive regenerative braking, which charges the battery.
• With 6.6 kW charging, you have the choice of a dedicated charger or dedicated wall unit (MODE3 Charger)
• A safe, quick charge is just one of the benefits of 6.6 kW charging
• In a pinch, you can use the standard trickle charge cord to plug into a standard 120 V wall outlet.
Plug Right Into an Outlet
With an innovative charging system, it’s never been easier or quicker to get moving. And now with no wall box necessary, you can plug in to the same outlet as a conventional clothes dryer with Nissan LEAF’s available 120V/240V cord. []
Choose When You Want To Charge
Set a charging timer right from the navigation screen with just a few taps. This means that you can start and stop charging at designated times – so you can take advantage of off-peak electricity rates (2017 Nissan LEAF screen shown).
The available Quick Charge port allows you to plug into a Quick Charger and reach up to 80% charge in 40 minutes. This is the fastest method available – ideal for when you want to top off your charge or for quick pit stops on a long-distance trip.
whEN IS THE BEST TIME TO CHARGE?
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OFF-PEAK CHARGING
Typically, electricity rates are lowest at night, when usage is lowest. By setting the timer so Nissan LEAF charges during off-peak hours, you can wake up ready to go, with a little extra money in your pocket.
PUBLIC CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE KEEPS EXPANDING
FIND YOUR NEXT CHARGE WITH EASE
Charging your Nissan LEAF using public charging stations is fast and easy. And with thousands of CHAdeMO Quick Charging points and level 2 stations already available, with more being built every day, you’re never far from your next charge. Plus, Quick Charging your vehicle takes about the same amount of time as enjoying a quick bite to eat. []
Find Charging Stations
Ready for your next charge? Just pull up the charging map on your navigation screen, locate the nearest charging station, and let Nissan LEAF show you exactly how to get there. And with specialized filters, you can search for everything from the type of charger to the type of payment.
Charging your Nissan LEAF using public charging stations is fast and easy. There will be approximately 2,000 CHAdeMO Fast Charging points and over 30,000 level 2 stations and counting by 2017 in the U.S. And with select states offering electric vehicles the use of carpool lanes, getting to a public station is a cinch.
Top Off At a Nissan Dealer Near You
In addition to the growing number of public Quick Charge stations you can access with your Nissan LEAF, many Nissan dealers are offering Quick Chargers you can use free of charge. Now, topping off is even more convenient. []
ZERO IN ON YOUR NEXT CHARGE – IT MIGHT EVEN BE COMPLIMENTARY
