The new Nissan LEAF (the 40 kWh version) finally makes its way to Australia, where it will be sold from August 1, 2019 at 89 dealers - "the largest electric vehicle network in the country".

To streamline the EV sales, Nissan decided to offer only a single high-spec grade, available from $49,990 AUD ($34,950) plus on-road costs.

Stephen Lester, Nissan Australia managing director said that the company is expecting to see a spike in EV sales in Australia.

For a good start, Nissan LEAF just received a gold Good Design Award in the product design category "in recognition for outstanding design and innovation".

The offer is complemented with two partnerships - first with JET Charge, which has become Nissan's preferred EV charger provider for home and business installations.

The second partner is theChargefox fast charging network - LEAF owners will receive discounted rates.
