While the infrastructure develops, we aim to shed light for buyers on the truth behind EVs and debunk misconceptions on owning and driving such vehicles, such as the Nissan LEAF. Like any new technology, people crave information about how it works, in real terms. And it was important to share such tips in a relatable manner that buyers can understand, supported by Nissan expertise.

Charging tips

In the first video on EV charging, Nissan shares data and tips on how EV owners can charge their vehicles, using the three main charging options for the Nissan LEAF as an example: standard outlet charging, wall box charging and quick charging.

  • Similar to plugging a smartphone to charge, 80-90 percent of Nissan LEAF owners choose to charge their cars at home with the universal cable that comes with their car, mostly overnight.
  • LEAF owners have the option of equipping their homes, offices or any useful place with a wall box, which provides a full charge within 5-7 hours – faster than standard socket charging.
  • It takes just 40 to 60 minutes to replenish battery levels to 80 percent via quick charging stations, often located in convenient areas such as shopping malls.

The video also clarifies potential safety concerns of some, highlighting charging EVs can be safely be performed in the rain – a situation often faced in the rainy season across Asia and Oceania.
