The leaf does not use any transmission.

As for the cost I'll find the amount and type of fluid for you later on if no one ells hasn't by the time I get back.
2013 SV Leaf, Level 2 charger, so far all works great! 130Km daily, 100% charge at night on 240 then trickle charge for 8H durring the day on 120v.

Level 2 charge starts at 130am environmental starts at 6am to 25c for a toasty warm defrosted car!

No transmission, just a gearbox/diff, called "reduction gear" in the maintenance scehdule. Takes 1.5 qts of Nissan Matic S fluid. According to the maintenance schedule, it does not have an interval specified to change it, just visual inspection for leaks. It is very "unstressed" lubricant, like a differential, it is not like a transmission.

Hmmmmm . I thought it had a Constant Velocity Transmission ? With a steel band and " cone pulleys " for input and output ?

For reverse , does it just reverse the direction of rotation of the electric motor ?

That is correct. Most EVs work this way. And for "Neutral", the motor still spins, but no torque is applied.

Electronic systems do not require a transmission to reverse the direction or control speed, large advantage to them

May reality find and free you.

another way to say that is power is neither added or taken from the motor, as either of these will cause back emf to cause kinetic energy to be extracted from the motor
