What alternatives should I consider to a used Nissan Leaf hatchback?

The smaller Renault Zoe is a great electric car. It’s a great used purchase because it is exceptionally cheap to buy and run, even if you lease the battery rather than buying it outright. It’s quiet and easy to drive, and its range is excellent. It didn’t fare as well as Leaf in our last reliability survey, however.

One premium alternative is the Volkswagen e-Golf. It has a range of around 125 miles in the real world. You can charge it through a three-pin plug, too, although it’ll take 13 hours for a full charge. It takes four hours for a full charge via a dedicated quick charger. It’s great to drive, but it is pricey.
