the European electrical system is different- why would you want to do this anyway? you have an eco-car to leave a small carbon footprint- but you want to carry 3000 pounds across the Atlantic Ocean?

Used Leafs can be found for $18 000 in the states, almost new: 8000-11 000 miles. This is a half price of new Leaf. Makes sense? Transportation will cost less than $1000.-Nick

Hi, I am in the same case. Did you end up sending your Nissan Leaf to Europe and how did it work out for the charging stations. Thanks. Francois

No, i did not yet-still cannot decide. I guess new charging cable 220 Volt , 16 A should be purchased to charge it with level 2 scheme.

I think Norway people did it just search the Nissan Leaf forum
