I do not think so.

I had an older Leaf, which I gave to my daughter. I do not recall anything
like that.

Hi,

Does anyone know if the original version of the Nissan Leaf, released in 2010, 
had bi-directional charging capability?

 This article says the Leaf electric car is selling well in Atlanta:

There are 4 in my office parking lot.

 I talked to a fellow who has one. He says it takes forever to recharge with
 a 120 VAC plug but he doesn't care. He lets it sit overnight recharging. The
 240 V charger is not expensive.

Not using 240 V affects the lifetime of the batteries.  The higher
voltage allows for cell equalization cycles.  Without periodic
equalization the internal resistance of the battery increases due to
varying cell voltages in the array.

 The fourth or fifth place I
 called finally had one so I had to go to Cheshire Bridge Road, which is a
 seedy nearby neighborhood filled with strip joints with comical names. The
 web site says the place is next door to the Terrific Package Store.

Hey, that's where I work!  Well, not in the strip joints (Adult
entertainment.  Entrance in rear. touts one sign.)  But, my office is
a mile away on Piedmont Rd.

Ah. Then you need to try the International Bakery, 2165 Cheshire Bridge Rd.
And the original, Original International House of Pancakes by the Tara
Cinema where the food is free but they charge for the entertainment. It is
run by an Original Cast of Characters. I was there one day when a snooty
businessman at the counter complained are you ignoring me or what?!? One
of the waiters, a flamboyantly gay 60-something guy said, Don't take it
personally, honey; we ignore everyone.

Nissan is experimenting with an inductive charging system:
