    It was the higher driving position that sold it to her as she came from a X3 but had so many problems as it was Diesel with the low mileage.

    Yes, I think that will be my next ploy- get her into the cars. According to the Carwow review she saw the Leaf does give the impression of riding high....

    It still has two peddles but you can set the regenerative braking sensitivity, turn it right up and it feels like your braking

    I wouldn’t normally but as it’s in the family I’ve become accustomed to it and I have to admit it ticks the boxes mechanically and it’s been faultless. What’s especially nice about Toyota Hybrid/EV vehicles is that they aren’t a liability for the owner >3 years old

    Ok, a lot of fair points in there, to tbh.

    Upside of 4 pots is they are easier to work on :)
