How long does it take to charge the Nissan Leaf?
From a depleted battery, it takes about 7 hours to fully charge a Nissan Leaf using the standard 240v home charging station. If using a 110v electric outlet, this would take approximately 20 hours. Quick-charging stations, which are currently more common in Europe, are starting to pop up in the US. Using a 480v line, it is able to give a full charge in just 30 minutes. Nissan began accepting orders for the 2012 Leaf in December.
