The Geneva Motor Show doesn't start until tomorrow morning, but that hasn't stopped Nissan from unveiling the Euro-spec Leaf.

Built at the company's Sunderland plant in England, the 2013 Leaf has more than 100 updates to improve the car's range and usability.

On the styling front, a new front fascia lowers the drag coefficient from 0.29 to 0.28. This doesn't sound like much but it works with a new high voltage unit - which consists of a new electric motor, an inverter and a DC/DC converter - to enable the Leaf to have an increased range of 199 km (123 miles) in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).

Other highlights include additional standard equipment, improved seats, a lighted charging port (with an electro-mechanical locking mechanism) and an extra 40 liters (1.4 cubic feet) of luggage capacity. There's also a new Visia variant which reduces the base price by €3,000.
