I thought this scene was fitting, after all the Nissan LEAF arrived before the ActiveE and is a ground up production but in my opinion the ActiveE is a far better EV - regardless of brand and cost aside. I have not driven the LEAF but I am a 'driver' which means I love to drive and that is why I thought the MiniE was so awesome. The LEAF is an excellent car but more utilitarian.
The Mini is a fantastic driving car and being an EV is icing on the cake. Same goes for the BMW, they make fantastic cars and a brand that comes first to mind when looking for a 'drivers' car. Having one be an EV enhances the overall driving experience.
