The Leaf tour came to the Domain in Austin this weekend and I drove one. It had a nice feel to it but I was somewhat underwhelmed by the acceleration ability. (Though I didn't floor it, so I don't really know what it was capable of).
Like the volt, the Leaf also does have a "low gear" mode that increases the regenerative braking. It was fascinating how the motor kicks in when you let off the brake, to mimic an automatic transmission.
Now I'm really anxious to find out what it fells like to drive a Volt, especially in sport mode.
