Tesla should open up a store in Eugene Oregon, Tesla has stores in washington, Illinois, California, are we in Oregon not worthy of a Tesla store, here the Nissan leaf sales are starting to grow a lot.
Order one online, and make the Leaf owners "green" with envy.
If they open an Oregon store, it'll be in Portland. Eugene is just too small to support a store (and I say that having grown up in Eugene).
I second ckessel's opinion on Portland vs. Eugene. There are more jobs and more money in Portland, therefore higher demand. Eugene is within the Model S 85 kWh range - round trip! - so very likely to not open anything in Eugene. Perhaps if Eugene would start encouraging high tech investment again... but I digress.
So far, however, TM is only serving the Portland market out of the Seattle showroom.
Go Nissan! Great job on selling the Leaf. There's not a competition for any Tesla offering. They have to put dealerships in more places, since you can't drive from Portland to Eugene one way on a charge with a Leaf. If you want a short-range commuter car, EV, that acts like a conventional car, buy a Leaf. If you want a high-performance luxury car, EV... get a Tesla.
