The Nissan Leaf is reasonable to drive, well equipped and pretty easy to live with, but it's falling behind in this quickly developing class. Newer rivals can go further on a full charge, and are plusher and better to drive. If you're on a budget, the standard 40kWh Leaf still makes some sense, but we'd certainly choose one of the many better alternative cars over the expensive 62kWh e+ models.

This gets you all the gizmos of the regular N Connecta, except with the larger (and pricier) 62kWh battery pack.

This 62kWh battery version is called the e+ and officially it increases the battery range to 239 miles, although in our Real Range test it managed 217 miles, which is reasonable by today's standards but still someway behind the Kia e-Niro (253 miles). It also adds more power that drops the 0-62mph time to 6.9sec, which is right up there with its nearest price rivals, bar the Tesla Model 3.
