63% of the range of a Bolt.
A Bolt starts @ $37500. Multiply that be 63%, and the Leaf should be starting at $23625 if it wanted to match range per dollar. It doesn't have to match it, because it is in a lower price point... but that isn't "simply amazing"
You should read about why every marginal mile of range has decreasing utility.
Tell that to my 90 mile work commute, my winter driving, or my 260 mile trips to my other home 1-2 times a month.
If 'other home' sounds too marginal, replace it with 'family.'
