Is there anybody out there who has installed a brusa 22Kw charger ( 3 phase) to his car??
Or has any further informations on pricing and selling points?
Seems to me like the perfect upgrade to a Leaf ...Thanks for your comments!!

Yes it's been done in the USA by a guy called ingineer. He also made a gas turbine Chademo station/range extender, upgrades EVSE's, and made a plugin Prius using A123 cells. He's a smart and busy guy!

Changing or supplementing the existing charger is about as certain to invalidate your warranty as you can get - so think carefully before modifying a new car. Also, in the UK you would have to declare this as a modification to your insurance company.

@Paul G. Don't bother... Brusa 22kW single phase charge rate is 3kW so unless you're always using three phase it's useless...

Better approach is some of the open source chargers that will have 3 phase support at ~43kW soon :)

Yes of course that would be cool but I don't have that much power at home :( You know well that you nearly need 63 A per phase to realise but I can only go up to 32 per phase...Look, I would like to put this on under the bonnet . http://www.brusa.eu/produkte/energie/ladegeraete-400-v.html
So is there nobody who tried this model by the way? Anyway most public EVSE over here are only 22 Kw and they are all brandnew so I think that won't change for a very long time. First I will wait how I get along with the 6,6 Kw charger and if it isn't enough I will have to try it on my own. Will call them tomorrow for further details and prices..
P.S: of course I would go for 3 phases because what sense would I make buying that piece and connecting just one phase to it...;)

The OEM price for the NLG664 is 6,640 Euros (excluding cables and VAT). Brusa will also require you to purchase a support package for 9,500 Euros (+ VAT). Hopefully that explains the lack of interest in the Leaf upgrade market.

If you want serious AC charging capability in an off the shelf EV then buy a ZOE, Smart, or Tesla Model S/X.

Wooww now that is a lot!! Thought it would be around 3000 Euros!!! Thats explains that the lack of interest!!:(
Maybe I will have to wait for the next leaf to have that option. But the 3 cars you named aren't real alternatives for me, either too small or too expensive!! But I cannot understand why they didn't fit that Zoe charger to the Leaf! It is practically the same firme, isn't it ?

Renault and Nissan were not part of the same company during the development of the ZOE and Leaf, and therefore the two cars have almost nothing in common.

The ZOE charger is embedded in the drive train and could not be extracted for use in the Leaf.

Just came across this old thread.

Actually this isn't true. Renault owns 44% of Nissan and Nissan owns 15% of Renault. The two companies have been in this alliance since 1999.
