I owned the Chevy Volt . Drove it 6700 miles, loved the power and styling. Did not like manual adjust seats.
Front Seats Ranked 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid FWD better.
"The driver seat is 8 way power, it has a memory and readjusts for that driver. The passenger seat is also power adjust. Both seats are wide and comfortable."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid FWD better.
"Trunk is deeper and also wider than the Volt. Easy to show, as I transferred my fitted cargo mat from my old Volt to the new 2018 Clarity PHEV. The fitted mat don’t cover the larger floor space."

Power Ranked 2015 Chevrolet Spark EV 2LT FWD worse.
"It seemed like Leaf 2 was more powerful, but may not actually be so as the pick up on the Spark EV seemed quicker. Maybe an illusion due to larger size."
Family Car Ranked 2015 Chevrolet Spark EV 2LT FWD worse.
"Larger overall size, interior and luggage space as well. More comfortable to enter and exit plus room for 3 or 2 plus child seat in the rear."
