Based on current trends, the Leaf is set to surpass the Volt in total units sold by either January or February. Both plug-in vehicles went on sale in 2010, with Chevy selling 71,867 Volts since and Nissan selling 69,220 Leafs. Currently, Volt sales sit at around 1,500-1,700 a month, while Leaf sales are at 2,500-2,700 a month.
Autoblog says it could take until March for the Leaf to surpass the Volt in sales, as January and February are usually slow sales months. Chevy isn’t planning on letting Nissan hold the title for very long, with its next-generation Volt to go on sale in mid-2015, likely beating an all-new Leaf to the market.
