Brakes hardly contribute anything to road dust. Tyres are the primary offender and with the base model Nissan Leaf weighing in just shy of 2 tons (where a comparable petrol vehicle is about 1.2 and the extended range one a portly 2.1 tons), you're going to see more of it. (Reports so far is that they _do_ eat tyres faster)
Demanding extra range means heavier vehicles == bigger motors to get acceptable acceleration == more tyre wear
