Leaf vs. Volt: Leaf Is Winning

I would not have predicted this.

In the battle of the electric cars, the Nissan Leaf is outselling the Chevy Volt.

David Shepardson, in his Detroit News automotive blog, reports that total sales of the Leaf through June 30 were 3,875 to the Volt's 2,745. In May, the Leaf outsold the Volt 1,708 to 561.

Considering the Leaf has about an 80-mile range on its batteries and the Volt, with a gas generator, has a range of more than 300 miles, I though the American Volt would easily outsell the Japanese Leaf.

Sheparson does not speculate on the reason the Leaf overtook the Volt.

I was truly hoping the volt would pull through..as a proponent for American cars, it would be nice for a change if we could surpass Japan on any front. But appears we cannot..
