Commented On: Which Will Sell More: Volt, Leaf, Or Plug-In Prius?

As to the question which model will sell best, I don't have a working crystal ball - but for myself, the Nissan Leaf will work better. I live in the Pacific Northwest, which in my area is mostly cheap hydro power ... and I drive an average of 12 miles or less per day. The obvious cost advantage of clean electricity, plus virtually zero maintenance expense of a pure electric, makes the choice clear for me. We also have a hybrid second car, for any long range trips.

I was originally interested in the upcoming Toyota Rav4 EV, but extremely disappointed in Toyota's weak entry into the electric market, and will probably decide to purchase the Leaf instead. I appreciate Nissan's dedication to promoting the electric platform.

A very nice vehicle, but disappointed in Toyota for such a anemic adoption of the electric platform. I'm very interested, but fear I may not get the chance to purchase one. I live in Washington state, which I was hoping would be a launch state. Very disappointed, Toyota!

I understand your point, David. I was just comparing the price of a non-electric 2012 Rav4 (currently around $25,000) to the stated $55,000 price. Being able to purchase TWO non-electrics for the same price makes it seem unfeasible to me. I REALLY want an electric car though, so I may be talked into a Leaf instead - if the Rav comes in too high.

I'd very much like to purchase this car ... but $55,000, if proven correct, is unacceptably high. Makes the $35,000 Nissan Leaf look inexpensive. I know that Toyota hasn't made an official statement on cost, so going into next week, I'll hope for a more realistic price. I live in Washington state, so I hope to be one of the launch regions for this vehicle.
