Photos of Our 2015 Nissan Leaf

Our 2015 Nissan Leaf S (the base model) with the Quick Charge option was delivered to Bakersfield by tractor trailer on October 20, 2014. The Leaf is an all electric, four-door hatchback.  It's an EV, that is, an Electric Vehicle. There is no gasoline engine as in the Volt. The Leaf is driven only by traction batteries and has an EPA rated range of 84 miles on a full charge. "Your performance may vary." While the Leaf can be charged at 120 volts, it takes a very long time--21 hours--for a full charge. Public charge stations and nearly all home charge stations charge at 240 volts. The Quick Charge package includes a full 6.6 kW on board charger--the EVSE is just the connection with the grid--and a DC quick charge port using the CHAdeMO or Japanese standard. The car can be recharged in 3.5 hours at the full 240 volt charge rate. The car can be charged to 80% of capacity in only 30 minutes using the DC quick charger.
