The battery capacity of the first-generation Leaf is only 24kWh.
Pure electric cars are not suitable for everyone. If you need to drive more than 200 kilometers a day, gasoline or diesel engines are more suitable for you. But if you travel less than 100 kilometers a day and are worth shuttles in the city, then you may be interested in it.
In terms of charging, there are two methods, through ‘normal’ 6.6 kW AC charging (using SAE J1772 plug) or through ‘quick charge’ 50 kW DC charging. Nissan is putting in a 30-amp AC wall-mounted charger that can charge directly, so it takes about 7 hours for Leaf to go from depleted to full charge, but in fact, the charging time is usually short because it may leave some power In the car. DC fast charging takes 50 minutes, but currently only three locations in Peninsular Malaysia have this facility.

In daily driving, you can drive the Leaf only by using the accelerator pedal, and you can stop even on a slope. Of course, when the situation requires, the brake pedal should also be the first choice.
