The Nissan Leaf is reasonable to drive, well equipped and pretty easy to live with, but it is falling behind in this quickly developing class. The Kia e-Niro, Hyundai Kona Electric and Volkswagen ID.3 will go farther on a full charge, while the Mini Electric and Peugeot e-208 are both plusher and better to drive. If you're on a budget then the standard 40kWh Leaf still makes some sense, but we'd certainly choose one of the many better rivals over the expensive 62kWh e+ models.get the best price

Tekna is too pricey to really recommend, although it does add leather/ suede seats, a Bose stereo, LED headlights, an electronic parking brake and a driver assistance system called Pro Pilot, which can take care of the steering in certain situations (such as motorway driving) while keeping you a set distance from the car in front.

Some people still associate electric cars with milk float performance, but that really couldn’t be further from the truth. The 40kWh battery version has a 0-62mph time of around eight seconds; a perfectly respectable time and quicker than a Renault Zoe can manage, although not quite as nippy as the Kia e-Niro or Volkswagen ID.3. Officially the range is 168 miles on a full charge, but in our Real Range testing we managed just 128 miles.
