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

e+ Tekna is too pricey to really recommend, although it does add more battery range and performance, 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.

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.
