    How and or why is GM comparing the Volt to the Leaf? The Leaf is an all electric vehicle where as the Volt is only partial all electric. After the battery runs down it runs on gasoline engine. The Leaf has no such option. When the battery on the Leaf is run to zero that’s it. No gasoline engine to fall back on.
    By all rights the Volt should be compared to the Prius as this is why GM decided that the Prius was to be it’s main competitor if memory serves me correct.
