How Does the Nissan Battery Work?

The Nissan LEAF battery works alongside your electric motor to provide you seamless power and clean energy as you drive through Downey. Just as you’ll have different engine or transmission choices to pick from in a lineup, the Nissan LEAF features a standard 40 kWh battery and an available 62 kWh battery to meet your needs. With the 40 kWh battery, you’ll achieve up to a 150-mile EPA range and leverage a strong performance of 147 horsepower. If you opt for the 62 kWh battery, you can go further with a 226-mile EPA range as well as an upgraded performance of 214 horsepower thanks to the Nissan LEAF PLUS.

How Long Does the Nissan LEAF Battery Take to Charge?

With so much power and efficiency at your fingertips, you might be wondering: How long does the Nissan LEAF battery take to charge?
