Nissan has slashed the price of its Leaf electric hatch for the second time since December, with buyers now able to drive away for $39,990.

The new drive-away figure, about $15,000 less than its launch price last year, follows a limited-time price cut that saw the Leaf available for $46,990.

This latest incentive is also a limited-time offer, available until the end of October.

Nissan says the reduced price is designed to broaden the appeal of the Leaf, and to "capture the attention of buyers considering an EV who might have previously been put off by the comparatively higher purchase price" of electric vehicles.

"I encourage anyone considering a Small car to drive a Nissan LEAF first, especially if you live in an urban area," Nissan Australia boss William Peffer Jr said.

“The Nissan LEAF should be on the shopping list of every Small Car buyer."

Buyers should note that the Leaf now available in Australia is not the updated model shown at March's Geneva Motor Show, which offers a reduced kerb weight and a 30km boost to its driving range.

The range of Australia's Leaf is nothing to shrug about however, with an official figure of 170km from one charge easily enough for most commuters.

The Leaf's competition in Australia is slim, with only the $48,800 Mitsubishi i-MiEV and the $59,990 Holden Volt (technically a plug-in hybrid) standing out as key rivals.
