Special Features when Charging Your NISSAN Leaf:

The NISSAN LEAF has a long tradition of electric mobility and, with every new generation, NISSAN strives to advance the development of its best-selling electric car. For example, the current version of the NISSAN LEAF is equipped with a 30 kWh battery, which offers a driving range of up to 250 km based on NEDC, depending on your driving style, the road conditions and the season. The variant of the NISSAN LEAF with a battery capacity of 24 kWh is, of course, also still available, and offers a range of 199 km according to the NEDC. In addition to the battery options, you can of course also choose from two on-board chargers as usual: 3.6 kW and 6.6 kW. You can charge the NISSAN LEAF using a charging station at home at a charging power of 4.6 kW or 6.6 kW depending on your country. With a battery capacity of 30 kWh and a charging power of 4.6 kW, you will be able to enjoy the full driving range after approximately 7 hours of charging. With the 24 kWh battery variant, your NISSAN will be ready to drive after just 5.5 hours.

You can charge the car using a type 1 plug and also at 2.3 kW with a mode 2 charging cable via a separately fused domestic socket. For safety reasons, however, you should avoid doing this in the long term, since charging your car from a domestic socket will place the maximum load on the socket for approximately 13.5 hours. The 4.6 kW charging station will not only allow you to charge your NISSAN LEAF safely, but also almost twice as quickly as using a domestic socket.


Special Features when Charging Your NISSAN e-NV200:

What would the NISSAN community be without the popular e-NV200 EVALIA van? With a range of 170 km after 5.5 hours of charging at a 4.6 kW charging station, this model allows you to manage even those longer business trips. Please note that your driving style, the season and the speed you drive at affect the range. When purchasing the e-NV200 EVALIA, you can choose between a 3.3 kW and a 6.6 kW on-board charger. Under German law, single-phase 6.6 kW charging cannot be carried out at home without permission, so the charging power is limited to 4.6 kW during installation.

As with the NISSAN e-NV200 EVALIA you can charge the van using a type 1 plug and it can be charged at 2.3 kW with a mode 2 charging cable via a separately fused domestic socket. For safety reasons, however, you should avoid doing this in the long term, since charging your car from a domestic socket will place the maximum load on the socket for approximately 11 hours. The 4.6 kW charging station will not only allow you to charge your NISSAN e-NV200 EVALIA safely, but also nearly twice as quickly as using a domestic socket.
