Hello and welcome to another eco US boxing match: in the green corner we have the all-electric Nissan Leaf, while in the green corner, we can see the extended range Chevrolet Volt.
During the rounds that took place in the first half of the current year, the Leaf managed to stay on top of its GM rival, as Detnews writes. However, we now have a premiere: the October sales figures show that Chevrolet sold 1,108 units of the Volt, which can not only be translated into a major percent increase over the vehicle’s September sales (723 units), but also outshines the Nissan Leaf’s October sales of 849 vehicles by a hefty margin.

However, you won’t see GM celebrating anything yet, as the company is still behind its Volt sales target for this year, which had been set at 10,000 units. Going further, we’ll tell you that the Leaf still wins if we look at the big picture, as it managed to convince 8.048 customers, versus the Volt’s 5,003.
