Europe has different voltages than USA so you want to make sure those are compatible.
I know with Tesla, you cannot do this, so you definitely want to make sure this is an option!
That would only be an issue if you used the OEM charging cable that comes with the car, because it's only rated for 100-120 volts. However, you can have someone upgrade that to accept 240 volt power. Some folks have done this themselves.
During the Leaf's early years, many were imported from North America to Europe, particularly Norway. My understanding is that even EU-spec Leafs use the same J1772 charging port as we do, and there are adapter cables that let you plug them into the public charging ports which use a Mennekes plug.
