So this weeks Gadget Show on Channel 5 was all about electric cars, including Formula E. John Bentley did his normal car review on the most affordable electric car to buy in the UK and compared the Zoe to the Smart and the VW E-Up....err what about the Leaf?!

That's the 2nd time they've done a comparison and overlooked the best selling electric car. I wonder why?

Very odd mix of cars, I can see that they wouldn't be able to get a Leaf at the moment given there's little point reviewing the old Leaf and there aren't any press/demo cars in the UK yet + gadget show is not exactly a proper product review program is it ;)

In addition to the size issue and challenge in even finding a car, it's also worth noting that the company is Renault-Nissan. So to have a Leaf and a Zoe would be giving one company two bites of the cherry. At least by having a Zoe40 they were able to prove that you can buy an EV with more than 100 miles range.
