Range options for your Nissan EV1,2 Travel further on a single charge
Nissan's EVs offer a variety of battery sizes which power different ranges. The 2023 ARIYA is available with two battery options – one 87 kWh and one 63 kWh. The ARIYA VENTURE+ 87 kWh battery version has an EPA estimated range of up to 304 miles.3 The 2023 Nissan LEAF also offers two battery options with the larger 60 kWh battery offering an estimated EPA range of up to 212 miles on a single charge in the LEAF SV PLUS version. The LEAF’s range is up to 149 miles with the standard 40 kWh battery in the LEAF S.4
Both vehicles offer Eco Mode – a feature that boosts the vehicle’s already impressive efficiency. On downhills, use B-Mode to capture and convert braking energy into charge that's then returned to your battery.

- If the charge port is open, you can plug the LEAF in while it’s on and it will begin charging
- Plug the charge connector into the charge port. When done correctly, your LEAF lets you know with a quick beep.
TIP: An EV battery optimally charges when it has a charge of over 20%, but below 80%. 1
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CHARGE AN EV? Charging your EV has never been faster or easier
For many electric vehicles, including select models of the Nissan ARIYA and LEAF, using a quick charge station can provide up to an 80% charge in under an hour.2 However, several factors impact how fast an EV charges, including the type of charging station you're using, the vehicle's battery capacity and maximum charge rate, and even environmental factors like temperature.
While there's no one specific answer, there are key factors that will help you determine the best EV and charging options for you. At Merchant Nissan we’re happy to discuss EV solutions that suit you best.
Level 1-3 charging1 Three levels of charging
Utilize a Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3 charger depending on where you are and what you need. Learn what the difference between the three levels and how your ARIYA or LEAF can charge conveniently at home or on the go.2
Level 1 charging
In a pinch? Plug in to any 110-120-V 15-amp dedicated outlet for charging. Level 1 charging is exclusively for at-home use. Most electric vehicles, including the ARIYA and LEAF, include a Level 1 charging cable. These cables draw power from a common 120-V outlet, adding 2-5 miles of range per hour of charging.1
Level 2 charging
Level 2 chargers are utilized both in-home and at public charging stations. Professional installation is required for Level 2 home charging. These units draw power from a dedicated 240-V, 50 amp outlet, adding 10-25 miles of range per hour of charging. As a result, Level 2 charging requires much less time than Level 1 charging to charge an electric vehicle from empty to full.1
With Level 2 charging, the standard range 2023 ARIYA ENGAGE FWD can fully charge in 10.5 hours (up to 216-mile range); the extended range 2023 ARIYA VENTURE+ can fully charge in 14 hours (up to 304-mile range).1,3
With Level 2 charging, the standard range 2023 Nissan LEAF S can fully charge in 7.5 hours at (up to a 149-mile range); the extended range 2023 Nissan LEAF SV PLUS can fully charge in 11 hours (up to a 212-mile range)1,4,6,7
Level 3 charging or fast charging1,2
Level 3 charging, also known as fast charging or quick charging, is the quickest way to charge your EV.3 Level 3 chargers use direct current (DC) power for expedited charging of the 2023 Nissan ARIYA and 2023 LEAF.
There are thousands of 480-V public DC fast charging stations across the country. With Level 3 fast charging, the 2023 ARIYA can charge from 20-80% at the following rates:1
- 35 min 63 kWh battery; 130 kW fast charge1
- 65 min 63 kWh battery; 50 kW fast charge1
- 40 min 87 kWh battery; 130 kW fast charge1
- 90 min 87 kWh battery; 50 kW fast charge1
The 2023 Nissan LEAF can charge at the following rates at a Level 3 480-V public DC fast charging station:2
- 40 minutes, 40 kWh battery 80%; 50 kW fast charge1
- 45 minutes, 60 kWh battery 80%; 100 kW fast charge1
- 60 minutes, 60 kWh battery 80%; 50 kW fast charge1
Other factors that impact EV charging time Battery capacity, charge rates and environmental factors can impact charging time. See customer disclosure form for details.1
An electric vehicle's battery capacity is typically determined by its size. In general, batteries with smaller capacities will take less time to charge, while batteries with larger capacities will take longer. However, increased capacity batteries provide more range and require fewer charges.
In the same way that there are limitations based on the specific charge point's rate, each vehicle's maximum accepted charge rate impacts the speed at which it can receive power. This means that an electric vehicle will only charge at speeds up to its maximum charge rate, regardless of the charger used.
Certain environmental factors, such as outside temperatures, can impact how quickly an electric vehicle will take to charge, as batteries are sensitive to severe heat and cold. To avoid damaging the battery, an electric vehicle's battery management system will automatically slow down charging when extreme high or low temperatures are detected.
