Nissan has selected AeroVironment to supply the home charging station that will be available with each sale of the Nissan Leaf full-electric car. The station provides for charging at 220 V, and the connector is designed to SAE International's newly updated J1772 standard for charging pure and partial electric vehicles, according to AeroVironment of Monrovia, CA. Nissan says it will take 8 h to fully charge a fully depleted Leaf lithium-ion battery. The vehicle, which has a 100-mi (161-km) full-charge range, is slated to go on sale in certain parts of the U.S. in December 2010. The charging station has a diameter of roughly 10 in (250 mm). The cord will be offered in varying lengths. Under the supply agreement, AeroVironment is also responsible for installing the stations.
