No, but you can't plug the prius in. And unlike the leaf that will also only go 20 based on your expert analysis, the gas engine will start and you can continue to drive.

"...the gas engine will start and you can continue.."

That kinds seems like it defeats the purpose of an electric vehicle to me, seems more like a hybrid (oh wait it is a hybrid)

Why would someone buy a vehicle like the Volt when the prius is cheaper and if you think about, toyota has had more time to work out the bugs in it. The volt is being marketed as an electric vehicle, which it's not, it just a suped up hybrid. The leaf is a better option that both those others because it is a full electric vehicle; and someone isn't going to be buying it if they drive across cities every day, someone who buys the leaf will have a short daily commute (say 20-30 miles), and they will have another vehicle for expended trips
