Other considerations aside, too little EV range and too ugly to be of any interest to me...

I wonder if it will catch on Europe, now that diesel is not the darling.
Funny, coming from a LEAF and Chevy Volt driver. You have cornered the market on ugly, boring, and weird.
The Prime does do EV, but it is just as equally thought of as a gas sipper. It would surprise you just how much reduction in petrol use that car achieves * while being super affordable and the pinnacle of reliability. And it comes standard with safety and Auto-driving features your car choices have not even begun to dream about.
* We use the Prius Prime for occasional 250 mile drives and my frequent 90 mile r/t commute for work. Since purchase in 3/2017 I have been consuming 0.75 gallons and 6.3 kWh (from my smallish Solar PV budget) for each 90 miles of the commute. That works out to 90 grams CO2 per mile (WtW), 2 cents a mile, and close to zero criteria tailpipe emissions. Car efficiency and Toyota sensitivity towards pollution control are quite impressive. It is really hard to do so well in all aspects at the same time.
