Want to get an electric runabout as a second car. New Leaf looks nice but not easy to afford. What’s better - new Leaf or new Renault Zoe ?

I have new Zoe on a pcp. Just got it on Saturday after a six month wait from ordering. New ones have a long lead time, now apparently 7-8 months. It's the only electric car I have driven and still very early days but loving it so far. I do a 16 mile round trip to work daily so it is perfect for me. I decided to lease it as there are certain to be technological improvements over the next few years and I didn't want to be stuck with old technology. The current Zoe has a 200 mile range wheras the previous model had half that. Good luck with your decision.

I have a leaf and love it. I did test drive the zoe but found it slower and not as nice a drive as the leaf. With the new zoe there didn't seem to be much price difference with the leaf.

We have a Leaf.

Couldn’t praise it highly enough. Really good sized boot too. Just a lovely, fun, cheap car.
