The Chevrolet Volt

Chevy Volt continues to crush the Nissan Leaf in June 2012

For the fifth month in a row, the Chevrolet Volt continued its dominance of the electric car segment as it outsold the Nissan Leaf by more than a 3-to-1 ratio.

While there are other electric cars available in the US market like the Fisker Karma, the Mitsubishi I and the Tesla Roadster/ Model S – none of those models see the volume in sales experienced by the Chevrolet Volt and the Nissan Leaf. The Nissan electric vehicle was able to claim the bragging rights of being the bestselling EV in the US for 2011 and that claim continued into the first month of 2012 but since then, the Chevrolet Volt has outsold the Leaf badly each and every month – allowing the electric Chevy to build an annual sales lead of 5,669 units through the first half of the year.
