Let’s play a game. You name a major automobile manufacturer that sells cars in the United States, and I’ll give you a vehicle they only made for the California market.

I was impressed by the first generation, for the price they’re a fantastic value.
I think the point he’s making is that Crossovers exist because the SUV loophole was closed with things like fleet wide emissions standards.
CUVs look like SUVs but perform like cars, since people were buying SUVs primarily for looks it doesn’t matter to them but selling more CUVs improves fleet emissions.

California has a higher GDP than France, Canada, and South Korea.
Every major automobile manufacture that sells in the United States has at one point produced a vehicle only sold in California. GM, Honda, and Toyota are the most recent that come to mind.

GM recalled every Bolt ever made due to the fact that they might spontaneously burst into flames and burn down everything within 100 ft.
Tesla is recalling Model 3s because your backup camera might stop working and you’ll have to turn your head or use your mirror.
Same thing though…
