Hybrids aren't that bad - yes we ditched the leaf and went for a hybrid as the leafs pcp meant we'd spend over 12k on a car worth 6.5k to buy it - nope.
I find it running on electric only at the oddest times, obviously crawling along in stop start traffic is where hybrids are traditionally at their most electricky but how about at 70mph on a perfectly flat or slight down hill gradient? Yep electric only. Increase the gradient downhill and it goes into regen mode. The last 1/2 mile of most of my journeys home which is 30mph through housing estates? Yep electric only.
The upshot of this is having a big SUV capable of some startling acceleration (thank you electric motor torque - reputed to be 500+ lb/ft at launch), enough room for 5 adults in comfort and their luggage and fuel economy of 40+mpg if you're careful and 30mpg if you decide that the Range rover sport on your bumper needs putting in their place (not the SVE version obviously).
If you want even more push, some saloons are stupidly quick (5 secs 0-60) with better fuel economy, but less practicality, well the batteries have to go somewhere don;t they.
I'd still consider an electric car in the future but really they need to gain some consumer confidence wrt batteries unless they have tesla on the bootlid. That said the i3 is 15k up 2nd hand so there is some sign this is happening.
If you can live with 4 seats then look at the vauxhall ampera, a 'hybrid' but the engine is a range extender only a la i3 ReX. Bit of a bargain from 8k upwards, the looks are a bit challenging though.
