Okay, let's revisit those
sales figures one more time. Earlier this month, we
reported that the scorecard for U.S. sales
of these two vehicles looked like this:
However, the Nissan Leaf, unlike the Volt, is currently sold in countries besides the U.S. So, let's compare the worldwide sales of both of these plug-in vehicles:
By the end of February,
had tallied 3,484 Leaf sales in Japan, according to the
Japan Automobile Dealers Association
(JADA) and 173 here in the States. The Volt, on the other hand, racked up 928 sales in the U.S. and, to the best of our knowledge, zero outside of this country. Now, those global numbers put the sales figures for these two vehicles into a decidedly different light, with the Leaf outselling the Volt nearly four-to-one.
