Sounds like a good commute car for one/two, with room for pre-adolescent kids in back.
Disappointing if this is the case I already have a smallish rear seat and limited cargo space vehicle with the Leaf, I was looking for something to carry 2 full sized adults in the back seat and more, not less cargo room than the Leaf.....hopefully I'll know more on Wed if they have the Ioniq at my local auto show. If not the Ioniq then maybe the Nero, although other than possibly more upright seating the Nero sounds like it may have even less cargo room....again time will tell, but no way I'm going to go backwards on cargo/passenger room only to gain more battery capacity. For the most part I'm OK with the Leafs range(although I wouldn't mind more) but not so much with overall passenger/cargo room, though I'm quite satisfied with front seat room on the Leaf
