2018 NISSAN LEAF NISMO-EDITION 100% ELECTRIC 40KWH
The Nissan Leaf, as an electric vehicle (EV), offers several benefits:
Environmentally Friendly: It produces zero tailpipe emissions, reducing pollution and dependence on fossil fuels, which is better for the environment.
Lower Operating Costs: Electricity is generally cheaper than gasoline, leading to lower fuelling costs. Maintenance costs can also be lower due to fewer moving parts in an electric motor compared to a traditional combustion engine.
Government Incentives: Many regions offer incentives such as tax credits or rebates for purchasing electric vehicles, reducing the upfront cost.
Home Charging Convenience: You can charge an EV at home, avoiding trips to gas stations.
Regenerative Braking: Many EVs, including the Nissan Leaf, feature regenerative braking, which captures energy during braking and sends it back to the battery.
The cost of charging a Nissan Leaf at home can vary based on a few factors:
Battery Capacity: The Nissan Leaf comes with different battery capacities (e.g., 40 kWh, 62 kWh). Charging a larger battery will naturally cost more.
Charging cost: Battery capacity (kWh)?Cost per kWh Charging cost=Battery capacity (kWh)?Cost per kWh
For example, if your Nissan Leaf has a 40 kWh battery and your electricity costs $0.12 per kWh, charging from 0% to 100% would cost:
Charging cost = 40kwh x $0.12/kwh = $4.80
Its important to note that most electric vehicles dont always charge from 0% to 100%. Charging from, say, 20% to 80% is common for daily charging.
