Nissan Electric Cars and SUVs



Going EV comes with questions.
We've got your answers. 

Nissan EVs are backed by a limited battery warranty [[155]] and prepaid service plans that are the result of 75 years of innovation and 12 billion electric miles of real road experience. [[1561]]


Two Ways To Go EV

Whether you choose the advanced LEAF electric vehicle or the ARIYA electric SUV, Nissan EVs have the power to change not only how you drive, but how you live as well.

Just Plug It In

Like your smartphone, your EV needs to be charged with electricity. And like your smartphone, recharging is as easy as plugging in.


Charge at Your Speed

With an array of chargers and a range of charging speeds, recharging your battery, even on the go, is as easy as plugging in at home or at a public charging station.

The Benefits Can Add Up

Benefits. Rewards. Incentives. Perks. So many states have them. If you happen to live in one of them, so do you. [[1513]]

Nissan EV Connected Services

Your EV is more than a car; it’s a connected device.

Get remote updates on battery status, charging and charging station locations on your compatible mobile device with NissanConnect Services.

Always Connected

Going EV opens up a world of connection between your mobile device and your vehicle so you never have to worry about being out of charge, out of range, or out of touch.


Maintenance: evolved

Your EV’s electric drivetrain needs no oil, no fluid flushes, and has far fewer moving parts than a standard gas engine. Translation: way less maintenance.

Still have questions?

We've got the answers to your most frequently asked questions right here.

How do electric cars work?

Unlike gas-powered vehicles, EVs do not require internal combustion engines to operate. Instead, many electrical parts work together to create motion. 

Inside an EV powertrain

Nissan EVs use electricity stored in rechargeable high-voltage batteries to power an electric motor. That motor converts the electric energy into mechanical power that moves the wheels and allows the vehicle to operate.

Charging your EV

Recharge your battery at home or away with three different levels of EV charger. Ranging from the kind you can install in your garage, to thousands public charging stations, your next charge is right around the corner.  

Brakes that boost your battery

Get the most battery life for your buck. When you step on the brakes, a Nissan EV captures the heat produced from braking and converts it into energy that’s stored in the battery. It’s called regenerative braking, and it helps maximize range. 

How long will it take to recharge?

The time it takes to recharge an EV depends on several factors. These include: the charging system used, battery capacity, maximum vehicle charge rate, and environmental factors.

Charging system

Generally speaking, charging systems come in one of three forms:

• Level 1 – Uses a standard 120-volt home plug-in. Can add 2-5 miles of ranger per hour of charging.

• Level 2 – Draw power from a dedicated 240-volt outlet. Can add 10-25 miles/hour charging. [[4]]

• Level 3 – These public fast chargers use direct current (DC) power. You can replenish your EV’s battery up to 80% in as little as 40 minutes.

Battery capacity

In general, an EV with a smaller battery will recharge faster than an EV with a larger one. 

Maximum vehicle charge rate

Every EV battery has a maximum charge rate and will only recharge as fast as that rate allows. This is true regardless of which level charging system you might be using.

Environmental factors

EV batteries are sensitive to severe heat and cold. In extreme temperatures, an EV’s battery management system will automatically slow down charging to prevent damage. [[1316]]

How long will it take to recharge my Nissan LEAF?

Charge rates will vary depending on several factors. Your Nissan LEAF SV+ equipped with a 60kWh battery can be charged to 80% capacity in as little as 40 minutes using a 50kW fast charger.

How long will it take to recharge my Nissan ARIYA?

As mentioned, charge rates will vary depending on several factors. Using a 150kw Fast Charger, your Nissan ARIYA, equipped with an 87kWh battery, can be charged to 80% capacity in as little as 40 minutes. With a 63kWh battery it can take as little as 35 minutes

Key components of an electric car

Forget pistons, valves, lifters, and other moving parts you’ll find in traditional gas-powered cars. EVs operate using a totally different set of key components.

Charge Port

An electric vehicle’s charge port is the “outlet” which customers use to plug in their vehicles and receive energy from an external power source. You’ll often see these power sources referred to as “Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment” (EVSE), or more commonly as a “charge station.”


EV’s work as a system on both AC and DC power due to the nature of what is required for motors versus batteries. Because lithium-ion batteries charge and store energy using DC power, an inverter is required to change the DC to AC power for the traction motors. The speed at which the motor rotates changes by using various AC frequencies based on demand. Inverters are necessary components for EV’s and allow for fast power delivery during fast charging at a level 3 public charging station as well as a standard 110V or 220V home charging using AC power.

Electric Traction Motor

An EV’s electric traction motor provides the power that makes it move. They are highly efficient due to the almost direct link between the motor and the wheel through (typically) a reduction gearbox. Unlike conventional engines and transmissions, electric motors provide instant torque on demand which is realized through almost immediate power from the pedal. While technically an EV doesn’t have “gears” they generally do have a reduction gearbox which has a final drive ratio.

Electric Powertrain

An electric vehicle’s powertrain encompasses the entire high-voltage electrical system that allows the vehicle to operate. An electric powertrain is commonly made up of an inverter, electric traction motor, and the traction battery pack.

Traction Battery Pack

In conjunction with a low voltage service battery, an EV’s traction battery pack is its main power source. This battery pack powers the EV’s motor and most other electrical components. Almost all EVs on the road today utilize lithium-ion batteries within their traction battery pack.
