To be absolute for knowing the units/km consumed for being a electric vehicle is difficult that's why there's a new unit MPGe i.e. Miles per gallon gasoline by US is introduced which shows the average distance traveled per unit of energy consumed, as for notice 33.7 kilowatt hours electricity is equivalent to 1 gallon of petrol (1gallon is 3.78 litres). So the claimed mileage for LEAF is 106 MPGe in USA for cities means 106 miles per gallon (170 km/3.78 litres) can be expected i.e. 45 kmpl in indian terms of view. As for the total 80 kilowatts of energy is required to fully charge to its potential i.e. 4.40 rupees / kwh in India means 352 indian rupees for a single term full charge of vehicle. 352 rupees for 510 kilometers of drive approximately. Hope that helped.
