Charging & Range

Charging at home

Charging your Nissan LEAF® at home is easy with a 240-volt home charging dock. All you have to do is plug it in. It takes about four hours [*] to go from empty to a full charge with the 6.6 kW onboard charger—and you don’t have to wait for the battery to be completely drained to charge it. It also comes standard with a 110-volt charger that plugs into any regular outlet.[*]

To maximize savings, you can charge your Nissan LEAF® during off-peak hours when electricity rates are at their lowest, depending upon your utility provider. Some providers may even offer Nissan LEAF® owners a discounted rate.
