I got a Nissan Leaf for the day earlier this week (about 1 week after the Volt) and put it through its paces. I have to say, its not nearly as nice of a car. The car does handle well and acceleration and drivability is pretty good but the rest of the car in my opinion is lacking. The interior has a very cheap feel to it, a lot like a Mazda. You can definitely tell that the car was built to a price point. The shifter is just retarded and the plastic blue paneling in the interior gives you the impression the car was built in some factory in China. On the plus side, the interior is very room. Tall people will definitely like it. It also comes with its own high voltage tools, although I can't imagine why. The HMI is also very well laid out and is simple and easy to use. The NVH on the vehicle is rather poor as there is a lot of motor wine, but personally I like the sound so I think of this is a positive. There's very little trunk space because the storage bins in the trunk or over sized for the crap that they hold (Leaf bag, HV tools, etc). In comparison to the Volt, the Leaf seems like a piece of junk. The Volt gives you the impression that you're driving a well thought out and engineered car while the Leaf gives you the impression that you're driving a kit car or something that was cobbled together at the last minute. The other thing that I noticed was the range anxiety that I felt when driving the Leaf. I was always paying attention to the range meter and how aggressive I was driving to make sure I didn't get stranded. For someone thats doing a regular <35 miles commute this probably wouldn't be an issue. If I was in the market for a $30k-$40k electric/hybrid car, I would without a doubt pick the Volt. To me its totally worth the $7k difference in price between the two cars. Plus, the Leaf has to be a second car while the Volt can be your one and only vehicle. I personally can't understand why the Leaf is now outselling the Volt right now. Probably for the same reason that people keep buying Volks Wagons.
