When would a $30k used Bolt be a better choice than a $22k new LEAF? Well, if you really need the extra range, or you plan on driving long distances with multiple DCQCs especially in the heat, the Bolt might be worth the extra $10,000. Especially if the seats work for you. They don't for me.
If you just need a commute car, with more comfortable seats than the Bolt, more interior space than the Bolt, then the Leaf is a better choice. Especially as this is a Lease, and you can bail in three years if not happy.
