It sounds like the Leaf has too much weight over the front end, not too much weight overall, as such.

My MB100 had this issue, it was front wheel drive and the front of the engine say a good three feet from the front axle centre line. Nothing but plow on understeer there. I did manage to get the back to step out a little once, by braking hard mid corner.
