on the upside, they may do some fierce discounting, like last time

Nissan will soon be confronted with the Australian market reality when the Tesla Model 3 and Hyundai Kona arrive!
And I will just laugh at them for delaying themselves into irrelevance. They had the product but not the balls.

I see someone suggesting a RRP of $42,000 ..... my guess given Nissan's original pricing for the original Leaf would be well into the $60,000s and probably nearer $70,000 for the 60kw version. Of more interest to me is the NV2000 which reportedly got 40kw from earlier this year. Whether or not it will get a 60kw battery is another question. Another issue of interest is the fast charging problems reported by British owners, something that may or may not apply to NV2000s thanks to their standard thermal management.
The $42,000 is probably the cost for Nissan to replace your 40kWh battery in 6 years time, since they are quoting $33,500 for the current 24kWh batteries in Australia.

Well looks like it is selling for $54,500- $55,500 (NSW on road). I guess that puts it between the Ionig EV and the Kona EV in both price and battery size. It appears that some sort of announcement has been made that the old LEAF (if bought new in Australia) can get the battery replaced for $9,500 plus labour.

Any links about that announcement?
TBH even $9,500 is worth buying one for conversions.
I'm assuming you're referring to the 24kWh packs.

2018 Leaf now available in New Zealand, Between $55K and $66K.
? I just checked the Nissan NZ webpage (July 2019), and it's still "is coming to New Zealand", for NZ$60K + ORC (equivalent to AU$57K today).

I was hoping to find out what charge connector the Australian 2018 Leaf will come with, presuming that we'll have the same as New Zealand.

City Nissan in New Zealand are "proud to be offering the new 2018 Leaf", but it's not clear that they have actual stock.

Cockram Nissan say it's "coming soon".

Hi there - comes with Type 2 connector for AC and CHAdeMO for DC.
Have pics of charge ports in one of the Australian Nissan display cars, but can't find a way to attach them here. You can see the ports of a Victorian registered 2018 Leaf here though:

Nissan will soon be confronted with the Australian market reality when the Tesla Model 3 and Hyundai Kona arrive! Let's hope they wont make the mistake of getting stuck with an inventory of 40 kWh battery cars and completely drag out the introduction of the 62 kWh one.
Can I buy one of those lousy 40kWh LEAF's at a bargain price? :D

Theoretically, would it be possible to import the 62 kWh Leaf into Australia from Japan (I have seen one or two imported 40 kWh Leafs on carsales) ?
