Nissan Leaf Mk2 Home Charging Guide

The original Mk1 Nissan Leaf won numerous awards and has sold 400,000 models as of March 2019 making it the world’s all-time best-selling EV at the time. This second-generation Leaf takes what made the pioneer so good and improves upon it. A more modern look with a bigger 40kWh battery pack means the Mk2 Leaf can travel for 168 miles before needing a recharge. If you want more range, then the Nissan Leaf e+ is a better option.

Charging times for the Mk2 Nissan Leaf are around six hours when using a dedicated home charge point. If you can access a public rapid charger, then you'll get an 80% recharge in about 40 minutes using the Leaf's CHAdeMO connection.
