Can you reliably charge at home and work each day?
I saw these days a Fiat 500e and I was surprised that there is such an EV car. I google it and I found that the owners are quite happy and the average trips are about 87 miles. It might be a better option because of a little longer range. The price is very low for a second hand one.
Fiat 500e is a California compliance car. FCA's CEO doesn't like making EVs very much (e.g. https://insideevs.com/fiat-ceo-fiat-los ... 500e-sold/
and https://www.reuters.com/article/chrsyel ... MS20140521
If you're not in California, you may have trouble getting it serviced, if something goes wrong. FCA reliability, at least for their ICEVs (internal combustion engine vehicles) is pretty dismal so it might be pretty risky once it goes out of warranty.
EPA range rating for the 500e is 3 miles more than a '13 to '15 Leaf: https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/Find.do ... 9&id=37067

30 kWh Leaf ('16 SV and SL and late '16 "S 30" (https://www.greencarreports.com/news/11 ... gher-price
) and all '17 Leafs) would give you more cushion in your cold weather.
