A + model (with 62 kWh battery) would be ideal for your use case.

Thanks, guys. I am looking to buy a new e+ N-Connecta.
I think that's the equivalent of a SV Plus in NA. If so, you really don't need a 62 kWh pack, based on your use case, but I'd you can afford it then more power to you. If I was in your shoes, I'd look for a used 2018 N-Connecta as the 40 kWh pack has plenty of range for the 80 mile trips you mentioned.

Most people should try for the cheaper 150 mile range Leafs (40 kWH) if they don't want to pay thousands of euros or pounds or lira or doubloons extra for range they rarely use. Or, if you have access to a petrol vehicle for long trips, then an EV can be used 90% of the time during a given week.

And the 40 kWH model is 300 lbs lighter, like leaving a Sumo Wrestler at home (he never likes trips anyway).
