Chevy Volt vs. Nissan LEAF
There's a lot of controversy comparing the Nissan LEAF to the Chevy Volt,
but it all has to do with whether or not the Volt is truly an electric car,
or whether it's a hybrid. But let's set their powertrains aside for the
moment. John McElroy just got a chance to test drive both cars, back to
back, and here's his impression of what the they're like.

Volt Handling in Snow
Volt traction in the snow is extremely impressive. When driving, it almost
feels like there's no snow on the ground. I tried to capture that fact in
this short video. This isn't meant to show a major snow storm, but the
fact that from what I've seen, the Volt handles better than in these
particular conditions than other cars and SUV's I've driven.
