2021 Nissan Leaf price and specs: Long-range Leaf e+ joins line-up from $60,490

The 2021 Nissan Leaf electric vehicle range has expanded with the addition of a longer-range Leaf e+ variant. Priced from $60,490 before on-road costs, the Leaf e+ justifies its $10,000-plus premium over the standard variant (on sale locally since 2019) with a larger battery, more power, faster charging and, crucially, a longer driving range.

2022 Genesis Electrified G80 revealed: Electric sedan due in Australia early 2022
