There’s three quintessential Eugene-mobiles: any Subaru, the Prius and the VW Vanagon.
The Subaru is the compromise-mobile, for those thta can or want to only have one car. It splits the difference between the other two, since it can both putter around town semi-economically as well as take one down a forest road for mushroom hunting. But for those that are less compromising, and want the ultimate in different capabilities, this is the preferred combination. And one day there’ll be a Tesla Model 3 there, having replaced the Prius, and getting recharged from the solar panels on the roof. But the Vanagon is not so likely to be replaced anytime soon. It’s a keeper.
