As one can see from the PR linked below, all of the JDM changes described in the OP made it over to the USDM model, plus we got 6.6 kW charging, too! (Japan relies much more heavily on DC quick charging, e.g. CHAdeMO, so Level 2 charging power isn't as relevant for them.)

2013 USDM Nissan LEAF press release



Changes:

- now built in Smyrna, TN rather than in Japan
- new, stripper S trim lacking much of the below
- 6.6 kW Level 2 charger
- heat pump!
- black leather and 17"s
- option of the previously-seen-on-Infinitis Around View Monitor
- marginally increased range via aero and regeneration, marginally increased cargo volume

Pricing TBD.
