Nissan electric models & EV chargers

Everything drivers need to know about Nissan's electric vehicle lineup

Nissan’s work on electric vehicles started in the late 1940s when it produced the adorable 1947 two-seat Tama mini-truck. After many decades of researching and showing all-electric concept cars, Nissan transformed the EV world when it launched the Nissan LEAF in 2009.

 

The futuristic first-generation LEAF would go on to become the world’s best-selling EV for nearly a decade. By 2018, when Nissan introduced the second-generation LEAF, the battery-powered compact hatch was available in 60 countries on four continents. It surpassed 400,000 sales in March 2019.

 

Nissan also sold the all-electric Nissan NV200 delivery van in Europe until 2021. Additionally, in late 2022 the Japanese automaker will offer the Ariya electric SUV. It’s a high-performance, all-wheel-drive big brother to the LEAF.

NIssan LEAF

The Nissan LEAF is a well-equipped, five-seat electric hatchback and one of the first mainstream EVs launched back in 2011.

In addition to the extended range, the LEAF PLUS gains quicker DC fast charging at 100 kW and more powerful 215 horsepower (hp) motor. The LEAF has ample cargo space at 23.6 cubic feet and offers ProPilot Assist, Nissan’s high-tech driver-assist package.

Nissan Ariya

Nissan’s second EV, the Ariya is the automaker’s first electric crossover SUV and its first model making use of the CCS Combo connector at launch, spelling the end of the CHAdeMO charging standard in North America. The Ariya provides drivers up to 389 hp and up to 304 miles of range depending on trim level.

Charging Nissan electric vehicles

Nissan’s long-running LEAF has utilized Both the J1772 connector for Level 2 charging and the Japanese standard CHAdeMO for DC fast charging. With CHAdeMO on its way out, they have begun transitioning to CCS Combo starting with the Ariya electric SUV in 2022. Along with the rest of the EV industry, Nissan announced they’ll be transitioning to the SAE J3400 (formerly known as the North American Charging Standard, or NACS) in North America beginning in 2025.
