That might sound low to you, but it's actually an enormous amount. Nissan only sold 67 Leafs. Leaf sales dropped by 23 percent! So actually, the Volt is excelling more than its prime competitor, too. Therefore the Volt is doing pretty good. In truth, if you had told GM execs last year that the Volt was going to out-sell the Leaf by more than 4-to-1, they would have been thrilled.
Do you still want more good news? Okay, how about this: Because the Volt sales are emerging, taxpayers saved money! The government gives everyone who buys one of the Volts or Leafs $7,500.
