Job: Local government officer
Drives: Hyundai i10
“I’d be interested in an electric or hybrid car when the time comes to replace my i10.
“A realistic range of around 180 miles is absolutely fine; on most days, I never do more than 100 miles, and for longer journeys you can plan a top-up on the way. A charging time of around 40 minutes is doable; you could just have a coffee break.
“This car could serve very well as a family car. Its boot is bigger than the Nissan Qashqai SUV’s and the seats are very comfortable, with plenty of space. The middle seat isn’t great, though, with a hump in the floor.
“The technology is just amazing, especially the ProPilot system, which can steer, accelerate and brake to keep you safely in a lane on the motorway.
“I think the interior layout is very logical and clear, and the driving position is good. The infotainment touchscreen is clear and reacts quickly. Material quality is really good; I was pleasantly surprised.
“The styling is a massive improvement; I like that the Micra-like design doesn’t make it look like it’s meant to be a green car like the frumpy original Leaf.”
