Frequently Asked Questions

What is it like to own an electric vehicle?

The newest electric vehicles can go distances comparable to conventional gas vehicles. With an ever-expanding network of public fast chargers, you can even go on road trips like you are used to, albeit with a bit more planning to ensure optimal recharging stops along the way. When you own an electric vehicle, you can expect to recharge at home most of the time by plugging into a regular wall outlet or upgraded designated charging port.

You won't ever have to go to a gas station for fuel because there is no gas engine, and you'll have less maintenance because you won't need oil changes and other maintenance required by combustion engines. While most electric vehicles are more expensive up front, they cost less in the long run due to eliminating fuel costs and fewer maintenance costs.

How do I charge a Nissan EV?

You can charge your Nissan EV at home with the included charging cable and can upgrade to a Level II charger for faster charging. You can also charge your Nissan EV at public charging stations around Poughkeepsie or nationwide.

Which Nissan models are electric vehicles?

Currently, there are two all-electric vehicles from Nissan. The Nissan Leaf is a compact sedan, and the Nissan ARIYA is our first all-electric crossover suitable for most modern families.

What are the benefits of owning an electric vehicle?

Electric vehicles offer a lot of benefits. Financially, you can take advantage of current incentives to get tax credits on EVs, and will keep more money in your pocket by eliminating gas consumption and requiring less maintenance over the life of the vehicle. By driving an electric vehicle, you'll also drastically reduce your carbon footprint and eliminate carbon emissions.

How far can you drive with an electric vehicle?

The Nissan Leaf can go 150 to 215 miles on one charge, depending on the battery and engine configuration. The Nissan ARIYA can go up to 216 to 304 miles on its battery.

How long does the battery last in an electric vehicle?

The answer to this question depends on what you are asking. If you want to know how far you can go on one charge, our Nissan models have a range of 150 to 304 miles depending on the model and the powertrain option you have equipped. If you are asking about the lifetime of the car battery, that depends on various factors like driving and charging habits, weather, and more, but the batteries in electric vehicles are meant to last for the life of the vehicle.

How long does it take to charge an electric vehicle?

It depends on the type of charging available. Regular Level I charging will take 24 hours or more to go from zero to 100 percent charge. Level II charging will take eight to twelve hours, and Level III DC fast-charging will recharge to a full battery in under one hour.
