How much energy to charge?

Seeing lot of comments about the time required to charge, but no estimates of the energy needed for a full charge. Anyone know? Just trying to figure the real cost by estimating how many kilowatt hours might be required.

The batteries hold ~22kwh. Shouldn't that be sufficient information when you multiply this by the price per kwh (e.g. in Germany ~22-25 Eurocent).
--> ~5.20 EUR per full charge == 160 km. ==> 3.23 EUR / 100km.

Actually it might be even a little lower, since the i3 (an no e-car does) uses the whole capacity of the battery. In case of the i3 only 18 kwh are used.

I believe my leaf is 24kwh and cost me around .03 per mile to run at .11 per kwh. So 1000 miles around $30. And we have a lot of free charging stations in central Florida that I use quite a bit so I really pay quite less. I can't wait to trade it for the i3
