2022 Nissan LEAF gets cosmetic updates but is still clinging to yesteryear’s CHAdeMO fast charging

Ahead of an opening of orders on March 1, the 2022 Nissan LEAF will arrive in the UK and Europe with a refreshed exterior look.

However, not much else has changed compared to previous model year LEAFs, including the decision to stick with the lame duck CHAdeMO charging port.

The LEAF sits at Nissan’s lone BEV offering for sale, despite its reign as one of the longest-running electric models in the US, debuting back in 2010.

It’s interesting if not baffling that Nissan has still only released the LEAF after being such an early promoter of EVs to the public.

For now, it appears to be all cosmetic as the 2022 Nissan LEAF will come available with some exterior updates in Europe next month.
