While the technology powering the New Nissan LEAF has never been more efficient and effective - the latest iteration is capable of up to 168 miles on a full charge - it goes without saying that access to charging points at home, work, or out on the road is fundamental to the enjoyment of driving an all-electric car. With the growing popularity of electric and hybrid models, however, more and more charging points are able to support you so that, wherever you’re headed, you will always have an option to keep you mobile.
Charging your Nissan LEAF at home provides the most effective means of fully charging the battery of your vehicle, and takes just 7.5 hours when using the latest 7kW home chargers. As such, you can simply set your vehicle to charge overnight ready for the morning commute.
You can also take advantage of a grant from the Irish government for the installation of your charging port. The government and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) will offer €600 as part of the Electric Vehicle Home Charger Grant for the installation.
The latest Nissan LEAF is fully compatible with the fast-charging standard, CHAdeMO - Europe’s largest charging network with over 4,600 charging points. Simply hook up your vehicle to one of these charging ports and, in 40 to 60 minutes, your battery will be charged up to 80% of its capacity.
Alternatively, you can even visit your nearest Nissan dealership to take advantage of free use of their Quick Chargers. With more and more charging points being added across Ireland, planning any trip couldn’t be simpler.
One of the best features of the New Nissan LEAF is the ability to easily find your nearest charge point. The charging map can be accessed on your navigation screen and will provide directions to the specified charge point. What’s more, the search function can be filtered according to charger types and payment methods, thereby ensuring complete compatibility when you arrive.
