My gen 2 LEAF is now about 3 years old. Getting to the age at which I tend to buy new cars.

The obvious replacement is the current LEAF, but it irritates me that it's still only 40KwH, in this "day and age". I could consider the E+ version but it seems to be rather a rare beast, and overpriced. Reviews have not been glowing.

Now the E-Niro is a nice looking car, but we're talking another 5 or 6 £K, and I really do have to consider the width of my drive. I can just about park the LEAF next to the charge point and still open the driver side door. Another few inches and I'll have to loose a lot of weight.

A self-declared SUV doesn't seem right. Mostly I'm driving only myself. No dogs, no sprogs.

Should I be looking at the new Zoe, or should I wait the expected developments this year. Unfortunate that one of those developments seems to be the withdrawal of the government subsidy.

It's shorter than the leaf. It's about the same length as a Zoe but wide as the Leaf. It's a good size. Bit more elbow room than the Zoe but not a massive over hang like the Leaf.

Have a look at the new Zoe anyway. A lot of dealers have LHD models in showroom now but should have demonstrators next month. Other than physical dimensions it is a lot different then its predecessors

How about the Ioniq 38 kWh? Nominally a smaller battery, but it manages to be about the most economical Bev, along with M3. Aerodynamically it's streets ahead of a Leaf.

I think the e-Niro is not going to materialise before the end of the year from what I've read on lead times.

How about the Peugeot e-2008 (or e-208 for that matter)?

DS3 Crossback E-Tense?
