Are you keeping the leaf, and adding the Niro? If so, bear in mind that if you only own 2 EV cars (and nothing else), you'll be unable to make any drives further than about 100 miles from your home, unless you are sure you can recharge at your destination. That probably fine for commutes, but it eliminates your ability to take longer drives on the weekends. Like TK6 said, you will get at least 500 miles out of a tank in the PHEV (my experience has actually been 600-700 miles, figuring I can usually squeeze in about 6 overnight recharges during each tank of gas). And it only takes 2 minutes to refuel, versus hours for the EV.
The Niro EV is a fantastic option for people, but in my opinion you should still have another car with a fuel tank for when you need more miles. I think if all of my cars were EV, I'd be living with constant range anxiety, and feeling really limited in where I can go for weekend trips.
If your milegage stays under 25 miles/day typically, then one tank of gas could last you thousands, or even tens of thousands of miles in the PHEV. It would effectively be an EV, as it would almost never be using the gas engine.... but you'd have no range anxiety.
If/when EV cars have comparable range with HEV's someday, and 440V charging stations are everywhere (including rural areas), then I might consider having an EV as my only car... but until then, I would never consider buying an EV for anything besides a weekday/commuting-only car.
