Nissan Leaf Battery Extender

Muxsan's main product is the luggage space-mounted extender battery for the Nissan Leaf. We can install battery extenders in any Nissan Leaf, including the models post-refresh (2018+, a.k.a. ZE1).

The extender battery is placed in the boot of your car, in a custom designed battery box. This battery box ensures your safety: it contains the battery and makes sure there is no way you can accidentally disconnect or break the extender battery. As such, you will be able to continue to use your trunk as you see fit: placing heavy things on top, even your dog having an accident will not harm the extender battery.

As you can see in the images, the battery box takes up a bit of space in the boot of your car. For the 2011-2013 generation, the box will extend to the lip of the trunk. For the 2013-2017 generation, it will be a bit below that. The largest extender battery adds approx. 160kg of weight to the back of your car. That is why we will modify the stock suspension for better rearward visibility and handling on bumpy roads. This is included in the price for a 22 or 33kWh extender battery. It is a paid option for the 11kWh extender.

With the largest extender battery, your range will roughly triple. This will transform your Nissan Leaf from a city car to a true all-round usable car. We offer three sizes of battery extenders: 11kWh, 22kWh and 33kWh. Please see the figure below, to check what your range would be with an extender in your Nissan Leaf. In most cases, your available range will be more than doubled with the large extender.

Benefits of getting a range extender

On top of the extended range, getting a battery extender will be very beneficial for your Nissan Leaf. The easiest way to explain the benefits, is to describe the extender battery as sharing the load for your car’s own battery. The extender battery takes some of the heat*, both in charging and in driving. This leads to a longer expected life span for your original Nissan Leaf battery and faster charging. With a MUXSAN range extender, you will be able to charge at full speed (approx 42-45 kW) up to 90% charge, even in winter. This makes it possible to do longer trips with multiple fast charging sessions in a reasonable amount of time.

*Technically we are talking about the current. In real-life testing, the main battery had 70% lower peak current going in and out at 10 Cº outside temperatures. As you can imagine, this leads to less heat being produced in the battery, thus mitigating the slower charging phenomena known as coldgate and rapidgate.

Nissan e-NV200 Battery Extender

Nissan electric van with Battery Extender

The extender battery for the e-NV200 VAN and the Nissan e-NV200 EVALIA will improve the range of your car significantly. On top of that, you will benefit from faster charging and less battery degradation because of your choice to let Muxsan install a battery extender in your vehicle.

We offer a battery extender for your e-NV200 of up to 88 kWh inside the vehicle and up to 33kWh in the spare wheel area, which we call the ‘under body extender’ (UBEX). We will install the battery extender in our workshop in Delft, in one day.

The e-NV200 exists in multiple variants and thus has multiple extender battery size options. As such, we offer extender batteries up to 99 kWh. Please check the figure below for the price and compatibility of a Nissan e-NV200 battery extender.

CCS fast charging upgrade

The Nissan Leaf and Nissan e-NV200 already have a DC fast charging option - CHAdeMO. However, this standard is limited to speeds of approx. 45kW. Moreover, in Europe the CCS fast charging standard is officially the standard, and it is expected (and by some customers already experienced) that CHAdeMO will become scarcer and less reliable as time goes on. For this reason, we are now offering CCS fast charging with speeds of up to 160kW.

There are a few caveats to this. First of all, not all batteries can actually charge faster; you can only expect significantly higher charging speeds if you also install an extender battery. In the table below, you can get an idea of typical maximum speeds achievable given a certain battery configuration. The highest charging speeds (120-160kW) can generally only be achieved on large e-NV200 extended-battery configurations. Most Nissan Leaf configurations will charge at 80-120kW max.

Also important to note is that faster charging will mean you will overheat your battery more quickly. Our extender batteries are prepared for thermal management, but do not currently have this fitted as we cannot get sufficient supplies to offer this option until 2023. On long journeys, fast charging will slow down as the batteries heat up (known as 'rapidgate' in the Leaf-community). However, with an extender battery fitted, even the lowest charging speed on CCS will still be much higher than what can be achieved on CHAdeMO without an extender battery.

The CCS port will replace your AC charging port (type 1 for Leafs 2011-2017, type 2 for Leafs 2018-). If your car had a type 1 port, you will receive a type 1 to type 2 adapter so you can continue using your original charging cables. Because of space constraints, on the Nissan Leaf the CCS port is rotated 90 degrees. The port is in the upright position on the e-NV200. The connector orientation does not impact the watertightness or performance of either AC or CCS connectors. You will also keep your CHAdeMO port as a fallback option. If you order a three-phase charger or extender battery alongside the CCS upgrade, you will receive a €500,- discount.

Our CCS solution is NOT ISO 15118 compatible (Vehicle-to-grid) and will NOT be upgradable to this option in the future. We are working on a second-generation CCS controller that will support this feature in the future. For now, we recommend using CHAdeMO for V2G/V2H/V2X functionality.

3-phase charger

With the larger battery capacity, our customers have noticed that it takes a longer time to charge all those batteries. Nissan has only ever offered single phase charging with their electric vehicles, with 3.3 kW (approx. 20 km/h) and 6.6kW (40km/h) offerings. For a 24 kWh Leaf, that means your car will be fully charged during your working hours or overnight. With a range extender battery, charging times may increase to unacceptable levels.

With three phase charging, provided you have access to three-phase charging stations, you can charge three times as quickly (11 or 22 kW), bringing back the charging time to just a couple of hours. You can be back to fully charged during a dinner date or a birthday party, giving you the full range of your extended battery for your drive home. Installing 3-phase charging does not interfere with the ability to fast-charge, in case you want to get going even faster.

Like the battery extender, the installation of 3-phase charging takes places in our Muxsan workshop in Delft, the Netherlands and will take approximately one day. We can combine the installation of your 3-phase charger with the installation of your extender battery on the same day and will give you a discount if you purchase both upgrades.

3-phase charging is available for the Nissan Leaf, Nissan e-NV200 VAN and Nissan e-NV200 EVALIA.

Prices for 3-phase charging are as follows:

Nissan Leaf/e-NV200 tow hitch

Few electric cars have an approved tow hitch - even though in our opinion electric vehicles are ideal for towing heavy loads. With high torque at standstill to start moving confidently without risk of stalling the engine, smooth power delivery avoiding bumping around your valuable furniture during a house move and low noise, allowing you to hear if something is wrong, what is there not to love about towing loads behind your Leaf?

We offer installation of a Brink RMC removable tow hitch for € 990. This can be combined on the same day of installation as your extender battery, battery swap or any other modification we offer.

Nissan has not homologated the Leaf for towing loads, so the tow hitch is technically strictly for use with bike racks and luggage boxes. We do not take any responsibility if you decide to tow, say, a car trailer with another Nissan Leaf on top. Do send us the pictures, though!

Nissan Leaf Battery Swaps/Upgrades

For some people, the additional range provided by the extender batteries is not enough. For those people, and for people who cannot afford the loss of boot space, we offer the option to swap your battery for any other Nissan Leaf battery. Yes, all Nissan Leaf batteries are essentially interchangeable. We regularly stock as-new batteries of all capacities. You can also bring your own battery and have us install it.

With the 40kWh batteries and larger, we highly recommend also installing a range-extender battery. These batteries are prone to overheating and will limit your ability to charge at DC fast chargers to 1-2 sessions per day — a phenomenon called rapidgate. With the range extender battery installed, your car can be fast charged and driven almost indefinitely before overheating.

The 40kWh batteries are also prone to more rapid degradation than other brands of batteries - something closely related to their overheating issues. This, too, can be partially mitigated with the installation of an extender battery.

It is possible to do downgrades, straight replacements or new installs as well (e.g. installing a bought battery into a Nissan Leaf with removed rental battery).

It is also possible to buy a battery swap kit, to do a battery replacement by yourself or by a local garage. We do not offer any warranty on this type of installation.
