The Leaf most often competes with other electric cars, although the Tesla Model 3 is by far the largest.
The Model 3 has a more future-forward interior and approach, not to mention the cult-like following of Tesla fans.
The Leaf is best as the un-Tesla.
The Bolt EV is on its way out and doesn’t look as sharp as the Leaf, although we like its practical interior.
The Niro EV and Kona Electric are relatively related, and have more mass-market shapes but are very hard to find.
The VW e-Golf is on its way out too; if you can find one, it’s likely steeply discounted.
