I loved both references. If 7of9 pulled up in a Tesla, I might be convinced to come to the dark side.
In the chat, supposedly ID3, Niro, Leaf, and SR+ are all proved very close to each other.
Here, given deep discounts, I can understand the Leaf value play, especially if not doing many long road trips (10-15k under SR+, and maybe 5-7K under Niro).....but for even money, I guess I was/am surprised that it still sells so well in Norway. I agree, the Video is fairly complimentary to the Leaf.
Well, let me tell ya a story of a roadtrip taken by my Dad. But before we go there, a bit of background.
My Dad was a driving fiend. I was 12 before we ever spent a night in a hotel and we did a LOT of roadtrips. In June 1970, my Dad (this was before my Mother got her driver's license) drove from Ft. Greeley Alaska to Hancock Michigan in 3 days. That is "averaging" over 1,000 miles a day for 3 straight days.
He was Army and no matter where we were stationed, he drove us to Michigan EVERY summer for vacation driving straight thru. Luckily, Texas was the longest stretch at roughly 30 hours.
IOW, my Dad was not a stopper.
Anyway, back to the roadtrip. He decided to take his new wife (my Mother passed away in 2004) to see the country which included visiting ALL his old Army buddies including two who lived in Alaska. They had a Prius and his wife hated driving so he happily did it all. But during this 10 month long trip (the last 4 months was an around the World cruise) , he never drove more than 300 miles including a few days logging under 200 miles.
So the "roadtrip" experience covers almost as many scenarios as there are destinations.
