2022 Nissan LEAF charging

If you’re a Canton driver considering making the leap from traditional gas-powered cars to all-electric vehicles, there’s no better place to start than the 2023 Nissan LEAF! Filled with advanced technology and boasting a solid electrical performance, the LEAF is a stellar entry point for those looking to make the jump into the electric market. But, as some drivers may be wondering, how long does it take to charge a Nissan LEAF? And what kind of range can the LEAF provide? Get the answers to those questions and more with this guide from Fred Martin Nissan!



Nissan LEAF Charging Times

How long to charge a LEAF depends on the Nissan LEAF battery and the charging level you choose. The Nissan LEAF comes with two different battery options: a 40kWh battery capable of up to 147 hp and a 60kWh battery capable of up to 214 hp. Below, we’ll go into the different types of charging stations you’ll find around Akron and how long it will take to charge each of the Nissan LEAF batteries.

240-Volt Public or Home Charging

One of the most popular options for charging around Massillon is 240-volt Level 2 charging stations. These Level 2 charging stations are available across the United States or can be installed in your home by a trained electrician for easy, reliable charging. See the time required for a Level 2 charging station to bring your Nissan LEAF battery from flat to full:

  • 40 kWh Battery to Full Charge: 7.5 hours
  • 60 kWh Battery to Full Charge: 11 hours

480-Volt Public DC Quick Charging

Looking to charge your LEAF on the go? 480-Volt Public DC Quick Charging stations are available across the nation to get your LEAF charged up and ready to ride. For a standard 50kWh Quick Charge Station, your Nissan LEAF can go from flat to 80% charged in an hour or less:

  • 40kWh Battery to 80% Charged: 40 minutes
  • 60kWh Battery to 80% Charged: 60 minutes

120-Volt Standard Outlet

120-Volt standard charging is considered a Level 1 charge and is the most accessible, but slowest, charging of the bunch. Any 120-volt outlet can be connected to your Nissan LEAF, even your home outlets, but it will take nearly a full day to go from a flat battery to a full charge.

What is the Nissan LEAF Range?

Knowing how long it takes to charge is only half the battle. The other half is how many miles you can go between those charging times! Leave EV range anxiety behind when you hit the road with your fully-charged Nissan LEAF battery and get these estimated ranges:

  • Fully-Charged 40 kWh Battery: EPA Estimated for up to 149 miles*
  • Fully-Charged 62 kWh battery: EPA Estimated for up to 212 miles*
