Since I only use my B for local trips range does not matter. I keep forgetting to plug in my car. Today it was just under half when I went to lunch. Ideally I would charge at 75% but it gets me around.
At 25% it reduces the power and I try to avoid that.

Our lease on the 2015 B will be up in Oct.

I really like the Jag and it should be "available" by then. It is a lot more money than the B was though, so hard to say.
I am also very interested in the EQC (familiarity and all), we should officially hear about it right before our lease is up. Maybe we can extend our lease once details are known.
The Audi is interesting and should be coming early next year. We already know the price on that one, and its more than the Jag.
There is also the Kona and/or Niro EV's though neither one will likely be avaialbe in WA in time for my lease end but they are both just around the corner.
The Bolt is a non-starter for me, its far too cheaply built for its cost.
LEAF E+ with 200+ range and a battery TMS, that could be interesting if the price stays similar.

I looked at a Tesla X. With only the color and autopilot it was 77K. Given Tesla's finances I passed. I could afford the lease but the company frightens me. It is bad enough having a Tesla drive train but ultimately Mercedes is responsible for my car..

Limited news from Mercedes about their next electric offering, supposedly a A class SUV with 200+ mile range. That would make buying out the B250e lease at the end of 2019 an interesting decision. Would rather stay in the Mercedes family vs. switching to the Jaguar electric. However, no harm to look and see.
