This is a discussion forum for the Nissan LEAF EV. Huge numbers of posts on fuel cell EVs and assorted other off topic stuff is trolling.


But this is a thread for a Fuel Cell vehicle. If you only want to read about the Leaf or EVs, why do you ever click on this thread?


Because I made the mistake of responding to trolling. Sorry.

How exactly is posting info on or discussing FCEVs in the "Other Electric Cars and Plug-in hybrids" sub-forum trolling, as they are unquestionably EVs? Here's a common definition of trolling:
An Internet troll is a member of an online social community who deliberately tries to disrupt, attack, offend or generally cause trouble within the community by posting certain comments, photos, videos, GIFs or some other form of online content.

As for huge numbers of posts, the majority of my posts on these topics is due to my replying to you and others who are anti-FCEV/H2. If you find the volume of posts offensive, don't bother to reply to my posts and I won't have any need to reply to yours, thus eliminating maybe 2/3rds of the total. Or you could just not bother to read or ignore the topic altogether as GetOffYourGas suggests, which is by far the simplest solution and one that's totally under your control.

Found it to be one of the rare real takes of the Mirai in particular, not 90% of the video that's just about how fuel cells work and that stuff that I've probably seen a thousand times. Really great. Also, I'm happy he didn't remark on the looks of the car per se - much like the original Leaf, you had no choice back then. If you wanted to drive electric, you HAD to drive something that made you look like a chump, and that has been the Mirai's predicament too - so not much use harping on it.

Also, it's been 4 years since the launch of this car and it's still getting decent coverage.

Really happy with that video, even though it ended on the predictable sad note with regards to the eventual fate of FCEVs.

O.K. thanks. Perhaps my ad blocker is the problem here.

September U.S. Mirai sales per IEVS, 159. I've recently been seeing more Mirais than Clarity FCEVs, where the reverse was true in the past.
