Due to arrive in Australia in August this year, the 2023 Nissan LEAF marks a mild update for the popular EV.

Nissan Australia is set to welcome the updated 2023 LEAF electric hatchback to the range this August, with revised styling and new technology headlining the updated range.

Priced from $50,900 before on-road costs, only mild styling tweaks are applied to the updated model with a new wheel design, revised grille design, new rear diffuser, a rear spoiler and new side skirts the most noteworthy changes.

Nissan's new logo design is also applied inside and outside the 2023 LEAF, while darkened headlight finishes round out the visual changes.

Speaking of the lighting, dusk-sensing LED headlights with auto levelling, LED rear lights and DRLs, heated door mirrors, and front and rear fog lights all feature as standard.

The updated EV hatch boasts a range of new technology as well, with one of the most important ones being what Nissan calls 'Canto sound' – a variable noise the car emits under 30km/h to alert road users of the otherwise silent car's presence without disturbing vehicle occupants.

A Smart Rear-View Mirror is another new integration, with the mirror able to function as a traditional mirror or display an image from the vehicle's rear camera.

The 2023 Nissan LEAF's existing safety features all continue to remain as well, with Intelligent Cruise Control, front and rear parking sensors, a 360-degree Around-View Monitor with Moving Object Detection, and AEB with Pedestrian Detection all remaining.

The NissanConnect infotainment system – which features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto – has also received some tweaks, and owners can control some vehicle features such as climate control using the associated NissanConnect smartphone app. Owners can now also link their LEAF to an Amazon Alexa home device to activate these features as well.

The LEAF continues to be offered in standard (110kW/320Nm) and e+ (160kW/340Nm) guises, offering 270km and 385km of range respectively, with those figures unchanged as part of this update.

The 2023 Nissan LEAF range arrives in Aussie showrooms in August 2022.
