Problem is, I think your Leaf is ugly :) Of course, I feel the same way about the new Prius models, although the Prius Prime has enough tweaks to the styling to be ok with me. Then again, who am I to judge. I fell in love with the looks of my little red Honda Insight back in 2001 and many people think of it as ugly... I seriously have never considered a Leaf though because I don't like the looks. Now the 2018 model is a whole different story. I think it is a much nicer looking car.
BTW - I snapped a photo of my 1970 Datsun Truck EV next to a Leaf the other day. I think of the Leaf as a small car, yet it looks larger in the picture than my truck. How times have changed. As far as charging stations, there is only one that we are concerned with, and that is at home. She is the typical use case that has been discussed on this list many times where 90% of her driving is covered with the electric range she has available, and since it is a plug-in hybrid with a full tank of gas available, there is never any range anxiety.

However after doing the math your Prius Prime only gets 56.6 mpg in the real world driving the full range. My 30 kw Leaf cost $13,550 new and gets close to 120mpgE for real. I suspect the higher figure is on electric only. Which is impressive.
