The dashboard LEDs indicate the status of charging. Charging port illumination is standard on all grades, the Nissan LEAF Visia, Acenta and Tekna. To stop charging the lithium-ion battery of your Nissan LEAF, simply unplug the cable.

CHARGE FROM HOME

STANDARD ELECTRIC CAR CHARGING WITH THE NISSAN EVSE CABLE

 

Your Nissan LEAF comes with a 6 metre long cable* allowing you to recharge your battery using a standard household outlet** in about 10 hours. The cable can also be used at some public charging stations throughout the UK.

 

 

* If you have the upgraded 6.6kW on-board charger, you will receive a Mode 3 Type 2 cable in lieu of the EVSE cable.

** a standard domestic socket for home charging must be on a dedicated circuit.
