Chevy Volt Pricing Announced at Plug-in 2010 in San Jose

This morning GM announced the pricing and packaging for the Chevy Volt. The base model costs 41,000 (before incentive) and includes a navigation system with 7″ LCD screen and other features. They also are offering it as a $350/lease with a minimal amount down. The Nissan Leaf is just $20,000 after financial incentives (in California, $25,000 elsewhere), and includes a larger battery (but no backup generator)

Would you choose the Volt over the Nissan Leaf? That may depend on whether you use it for a commuting car or regularly plan to use the car to take longer trips. Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.
