So, how are the first two mainstream plug-in vehicles in the U.S. selling? Both the Chevrolet Volt and the Nissan Leaf had their first deliveries in December, which means January of 2011 was the first full month of sales for each. Without further ado, the numbers are:
  • Volt: 321 (plus 326 in December, for a total of 647)
  • Leaf: 87 (plus 19 in December, 106 total)
Thing is, these numbers are very supply related and shouldn't be seen as an accurate gauge of demand for either of these vehicles. We won't really be able to declare a "winner" in this fight until both General Motors and Nissan get their plug-in vehicle production lines up to full speed, but for now, looks like GM's doing it up a little bit better than Nissan.
