2012 Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid: Brief Drive Report

I still don't know what to think of the Plug-in Prius model of electrification. The Chevy Volt E-REV approach with 40 miles of ALL-ELECTRIC seems much better in terms of its environmental cred and long driving range possibilities. As a second car, the LEAF really shines as it uses no gasoline at all and has sufficient range such that on any given day, either my wife or I could use it. As far as the vehicles go, the Prius layout is just far better than the Leaf or the Volt. There is very little room to sit in the back of either (no "toe room" in the back of the LEAF). Also, for cargo capacity, the Prius load bay is much better than the Volt. I am the only one to feel like the PiP Prius is more of a "sure bet" than the other two?
