DESIGNED FOR HOW YOU REALLY DRIVE
A FULL DAY OF RANGE
Nissan LEAF is engineered for the real world. With a range of approximately 195km.* For most people, that’s plenty to cover a daily commute. Nissan LEAF also gives you tools and info to help you get more out of every charge. Like energy-saving drive modes and the Multi-Function Display Drive Computer, which keeps you in the know on power used/generated, battery charge, charging times and more.
*Driving range depends on a number of factors, including ambient temperature, driving behaviour, traffic and road conditions and the use of the aircon or heater.
HOW FAR WILL YOU GO?
The Nissan LEAF is built with range maximising features that help you go further on every charge. As your driving range can be affected by numerous factors, there are multiple Nissan Charging Dealers where you can pull in to top up.
GETTING THE MOST FROM EACH CHARGE
There are a number of ways to ensure maximum range from each charge. One is setting a moderate cabin temperature. Another is pre-heating or pre-cooling your Nissan LEAF while it’s still charging, so you save more of the battery for the road. You can do this via the on-board computer, or simply set a timer. While on the road, driving at slower, constant speeds maximises range, as does driving in ECO or B Mode. In addition, whenever you brake, regenerative braking technology converts energy that would otherwise be wasted into battery energy.
ECO MODE: EXTEND YOUR RANGE
For the most efficient use of your battery’s charge, the Nissan LEAF features an innovative Eco Mode. Activating it limits the motor’s output, cuts back on the climate control, and increases the regenerative braking, which helps improve range by up to 10%.
B MODE: GENERATE EVEN MORE ENERGY
To enhance the Nissan LEAF’s regenerative braking capabilities, simply activate B Mode. In addition to charging the battery whenever you brake, the system will also charge it anytime you take your foot off the accelerator.
GENERATE ENERGY WHILE YOU DRIVE
The Nissan LEAF’s regenerative braking system converts some of the energy you lose from braking into extra charge for your battery. That means every time you slow down, this ingenious system captures some of that energy and stores it for later.
YOUR RANGE AT A GLANCE
KEEP TABS ON YOUR POWER
This simple power meter makes it easy to keep an eye on your power consumption. The lights track left or right to show how much power you’re using – or how much you’re generating, thanks to the Nissan LEAF’s ingenious regenerative braking system.
THREE WAYS TO CHARGE
FOR CHARGING, YOU HAVE OPTIONS
Charging your Nissan LEAF is simple. Plug it in at home, just like your smart phone. Or make use of rapid chargers, installed at Nissan Leaf Dealerships, which provide an 80% charge in just 30 minutes.
HOME CHARGE: 100% CHARGE IN AS LITTLE AS 8 HOURS
Your home charging dock will be your primary charging station. When your Nissan LEAF is charged at Normal Charging overnight, it will be fully charged in the morning so you are ready to go. There is also a Quick Charge mode.
PUBLIC QUICK CHARGE: 80% CHARGE IN 30 MINUTES
With the available quick-charge port at all Nissan LEAF dealers, you can plug in at DC fast-charge stations and reach an 80% charge in about 30 minutes. This is ideal for when you’re out and about and want to top up your charge.
Nissan LEAF also comes with an opportunity-charge cable as an aftermarket accessory. Although the rate of charging is slower than other options, this allows you to access charging anywhere there is a suitable outlet.
CHARGING AT HOME
THE NEW WAY TO FILL UP
Filling up takes on a whole new meaning in the Nissan LEAF. All you have to do is plug in, and you’re good to go for up to 195 km.*
*Based on optimal driving conditions.
