of batteries of greater capacity than the well-known 24-kWh. The advantage

continues to have the same interior space as
these occupy exactly the same volume and under the seats.

How did a
battery of increased capacity in the same size? By the
Thanks to her, achieved a 26% more capacity and autonomy

Nitrogen, Magnesium and Carbon)
in the electrodes. The number of cells, 192, remains the same

The feeling of driving an electric is something that I recommend to everyone. The comfort in your cabin, by the absence of noise and vibrations, the smoothness of the motion during the start of the same and the strong acceleration that is able to provide thanks to your delivery linear pair is something completely new for you want to only have led to combustion vehicles.

According to the data
provided by Nissan, on average, a person runs about 50 km
a day in total to get to and from work, with the new model of 30 kWh estimate that with a full load
will allow you to use the
vehicle a day more without the need to reload

Speaking of loads, a
peculiarity of the Leaf’s 30 kWh is that
employs exactly the same
time that the versions of 24 kWh when we do it with a charging system
: 30 minutes to reach 80% of capacity, however
when we talk about slow charges, in sockets of 230V, the time to
a full load increases by approximately
a few hours.


the batteries in The LEAF’s 30 kWh recharge in the same time than the 24 kWh in systems of rapid charging.

The reason is that while the plugs conventional charged to a
steadily the same amount of energy, the quick charge is
limited only by the temperature of the battery. Nissan declares that
the battery of 30 kWh is heated the same as the 24-kWh despite the fact that possess a greater capacity in the same space.

a Leaf less eye-catching.
