    Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid (PHEV). That's rare cause it was only sold in QC so either this person moved here or bought it there and registered it here.

    Another Suzuki Kizashi

    Toyota Chaser

    Mitsubishi Pajero 2-dr. Looks to be a 2000-2002 model. Thought it was a Suzuki at first until I saw the Mitsu logo.

    Well I saw a unicorn in the Pacific Northwest yesterday.

    1990 or 91 Volkswagen Vanagon camper, Carat trim in Pastel White. Very good condition. The last time I looked into these, the very best of them were already past six figures and demand was still surging.

    Saw my first Ioniq 6 while going out for lunch.
    And my second gen5 Prius last week. It's on the same street as a local X90.

    2024 Subaru Solterra.

    Saw this one from the inside! I used a rideshare app yesterday afternoon to get across greater Seattle.

    The driver said he'd rented it for the day from a company that does such for rideshare drivers. He said he was thinking about buying one for himself, and was using his rideshare experience to do extended test-drives of various EVs. He said he would drive until the range was low, then take it back and sign out another.

    The car seemed to ride and drive nicely, no real complaints. Much better rear row headroom than the Tesla 3 & S, but less than the X. (Those are the only other EVs I've experienced as rideshares)

    The seats were comfortable, even with a tall driver and two tall passengers in the rear. The dash had nice colors and textures, but the main center display seemed too big and busy.

    Weirdly enough, I swear I saw a LHD Toyota Alphard. Imported from China?

    A blue VinFast VF8

    1998 Suzuki Jimny. I only know it’s 1998 because it’s the latest year you can import one into Canada (15 year rule)

    Caught this at a nearby Sunoco station before the short-lived name change (~ 4months) reverted back to the original.

    There was a kei truck parked on my block, or at least kei like. Couldn't spot the make or model.

    A Clarity on the way into work today. Can't mistake those rear wheel well arches. Only the PHEV made it out this far.
