By 2019, Nissan should have its LEAF -based SUV on the showroom floor.

Is the best-selling EV still in the game with Model 3 and Bolt EV?

He says at ~4:39 that he didn't get too many questions from folks. Since I don't normally watch Bjorn's videos or posts (somewhere), unfortunately, I had no idea he was looking for questions. I'm sure we could've given him a ton.

That makes sense. Subaru sells well in Seattle.

Does everyone in Seattle drive a Subaru?
Guilty. REI member for 40 years now, although I bought relatively little from them in the '70s and early '80s, when they mainly carried just their house brand. Their stuff was okay quality but basic, and most of my gear was higher end, bought from the wide selection of outdoor manufacturers/retailers in Berkeley then, i.e. Marmot Mtn. Works, The North Face, Sierra Designs, The Ski Hut/Trailwise, Class Five, as they were all local and I spent a lot of time hanging out in them in my teens. Once REI started to carry all the major manufacturers it drove most of the manufacturer's stores out of business, as they couldn't compete on price. Now, almost everything's made overseas.No, not everyone here drives the Japanese car beloved by the REI crowd.
