Q: If I want to "prewire" a new home for a future Nissan LEAF owner, what is required?
A: The home charging station will require a 240V/20amp (40amp is even better) dedicated circuit connected to a breaker. The charger will need to be hard-wired directly to the circuit.
Q: Will the "engine compartment" just contain the smaller electric motor or is there the potential for more trunk space?
A: There is no front cargo space, but we are working to maximize interior and cargo space elsewhere.
Q: How long will the battery remain charged if you leave it parked where you cannot charge it?
A: This depends on a variety of factors like ambient temperature, age of the battery and how much energy is in the battery when you park it. However, the drain is very small relative to the battery's capacity.
Q: Is the Nissan LEAF going to have the Zero Emission logo on it?
A: Current plan is to include a zero emissions badge, but not the big body graphic. We are looking at accessory decal & graphics options.
Q: Is there a timeline for the development of sufficient "charging station" infrastructure to make this competitive with ICEs?
A: We are working with all levels of government and private corporations to grow infrastructure. You can help by supporting this growth.
Q: Since the battery is in the front, is there something protecting it in case of a collision?
A: The battery is actually located under the seats. It has been tested for impact safety.
