Nissan says Leaf EV beats Volt mileage with 367 mpg


Those who need to commute 100+ miles per day, neither car is for you. The Volt would be running on gasoline for the bulk of the trip, which will drop the mileage, and for sure the Leaf won't get you there. You truly need a regular hybrid or straight gasoline car. But for the typical user who drives less than 15,000 miles per year, or less than 288 miles per week - a 100 mile range per day works just fine.
