The Nissan Leaf is reasonable to drive, well equipped and easy to live with. However, the Kia e-Niro and big-battery version of the Hyundai Kona Electric will both go much further on a full charge. True, the standard battery versions of the Leaf may appear good value compared to those rivals if you can live with its shorter range, but the e+ Tekna is far too expensive to recommend, and still has a shorter real-world range than some rivals.

Trim: Acenta

We are yet to try out this We reckon entry-level Acenta trim is all you really need because you get 16in alloys, climate control, automatic lights and wipers, adaptive cruise control and tonnes of safety kit. If you want heated seats or parking sensors, you can always add them as an option.

Engine: 110kW

With a 0-60mph time of around eight seconds, the Nissan Leaf is nippier than a VW e-Golf if not quite as quick as a Kia e-Niro. You actually have to be a bit gentle with your right foot when accelerating out of junctions or you’ll spin up the front wheels.
