Not more than 2 cents to add, but I jumped into the EV market last month with a 2017 Focus Electric. Had test driven a Leaf for a whole day and liked it but... cargo space isn't THAT big an issue for me, and the dreaded battery life issues of the Leaf were a no-go as I like to keep my cars a while (and do over 20K/yr in miles so leasing is rarely economical).
Couple other items to note:
FFE's suspension feels sturdier than the Leaf, one particular hilly curve near my house demonstrated this (the Leaf gave me some pause, but the Ford handles it like a champ)
Standard HID headlights on the FFE. Never had those before, it's a nice touch.
I was impressed to see the Focus Electric not only has a liquid cooling system for the battery, but a chiller module plumbed to the A/C compressor to keep it cool in extreme heat (see http://www.myfocuselectric.com/forum/vi ... 027#p27462
Otherwise it's not that different from the Leaf, similar range, same Level 2 charging capability and the 2017 FFE has CCS/SAE DC fast charging. I do think the Leaf SV/SL's heat pump would be a benefit though, as the Focus just has a PTC resistive heater. I'll rely on preconditioning at home and hopefully my workplace gets some charging soon... the bug is in the ear of some facilities folks who can make that happen.
