That's a huge advantage I see the Vol has over the Leaf. If you need to travel farther than that, you get stranded with your Nissan, but a Volt could keep on trucking, switching to fuel when the batteries run out.
Ofcource you use the other car.
There are 60 million households in the US with multiple cars. All cars in a family except one can be replaced with a BEV. The ICE car can be replaced with a Volt, later.
In any case, if you think the current situation can contine indefinitely and people don't have to make any life style changes, I suggest you educate yourself about Peak Oil.
