WHAT CAR? SAYS
It’s a close-run thing, this.the Leaf is a little more pleasant to drive and more practical, plus it’s cheaper and better equipped. The Kona counters with seriously nippy performance, a smarter interior, a more sophisticated infotainment system and a much better driving position.
In the end, though, the Kona’s far superior range between charges snatches it the win. It’s the rst sensibly priced electric car that won’t require the majority of motorists to dramatically adjust their lifestyle in order to live with it, especially when you factor in the UK’S rapidly improving charging infrastructure.
