What is the Nissan Leaf Fuel Economy?

2023 nissan leaf charging
Looking for the ideal electric vehicle for your Mayfield Heights commute? The 2023 Nissan Leaf is the best option for you, however, many Mayfield drivers are curious about the Nissan Leaf range.

So, what exactly is the 2023 Nissan Leaf fuel economy range? It’s important to understand that the mpg ratings of electric vehicles are measured slightly differently (instead of MPG, they’re recorded as Miles Per Gallon equivalent (MPGe)). In this conversion, 33.7 kWh = 1 gallon of gasoline.Therefore, for a fully charged 40 kWh battery, the Nissan Leaf range maxes out at 150 MPGe. For a fully charged 62 kWh battery, the Nissan Leaf range reaches up to 226 miles MPGe.

How Long Does it Take to Charge a Nissan Leaf?

If you want the most out of your 2023 Nissan Leaf fuel economy ratings, you’ll want to get a full battery charge. Not sure how long it takes to fully charge a Nissan Leaf? Your charging time will differ based on whether you have a 120-volt, 240-volt, or 480-volt charger. Although we believe it’s most convenient to install a home charger in your Mayfield garage, each charging station and level comes with its own advantages and disadvantages. Take a look at the three types of EV chargers below:

120-Volt Standard Outlet

Your new Nissan LEAFdoes come with a 120V charging cable for a Level 1 charge. This can plug into literally any standard outlet, just like you would plug in your cell phone. That said, this will take around 20 hours to charge up the car. Your best bet is to plug in your vehicle overnight to achieve the maximum Nissan Leaf range once it’s finished charging.

240-Volt Public or Home Charging

Home chargers and lower-level public chargers offer affordable, moderately fast charging times. These are best for either charging overnight or topping up when far from home. There are well over 30,000 240-volt public chargers across the United States:

  • With a 40 kWh battery: Flat to fully charged in 8 hours
  • With a 62 kWh battery: Flat to fully charged in 11.5 hours

480-Volt Public DC Quick Charging

480-volt DC Quick Charging is best for long road trips across OH. These chargers can keep you going, and do so just quickly enough to not slow down your trip. This is how long it takes for a quick charger to take a Leaf from flat to 80 percent charged:

  • With a 40 kWh battery: 40 minutes
  • With a 62 kWh battery: 60 minutes
