    Once again, your own hand selected article contradicts you:

    The new infrastructure will likely support hydrogen-powered trucks and buses, with lithium-ion batteries remaining dominant for cars.
    So you meant to say, looks really bad for the Mirai.

    Not the cyber truck. Semi will come, not making that yet, will be short to midrange at first so will continue to have an advantage there.

    Meanwhile your Mirai is toast according to the article.

    Your predictions have been so bad, so will have to doubt that on history alone. But they’ve already racked up enough orders well ahead of the actual product availability. Not some fanciful 2030 delivery.

    So tell us more about how Mirai stands to do in China based on the article you started this thread with?

    Tesla has started the world revolution to electric vehicles and many are trying to imitate Tesla. Some will succeed and become as successful as Tesla. But the future will be Hydrogen - no doubt in my mind. BEV will evolve to include Hydrogen and batteries.

    Still haven’t answered, please tell us more about how Mirai stands to do in China based on the article you started this thread with?

    According to your article, the thread should be titled:

    China Believes In Tesla over Mirai.

    Last Summer, China opened the world's largest hydrogen filling station in Shanghai. The station is the largest hydrogen fueling station in the world with enough capacity to refill 600 fuel cell cars per day.

    But what does that have to do with Mirai doing poorly there and Tesla crushing it?

    Until the release of the Gen 2 Mirai in a few weeks the Gen 1 was only made in limited numbers. So of course there numbers are low.

    With China support of an FCEV nation Tesla sales will be impacted in China. Already seeing it with excess Model 3s being shipped to Europe.

    But your article says no future for Mirai in China. Tell us more about that.

    Even Toyota says no future for Mirai there:

    The Japanese automaker sees the market dominated by hydrogen-powered trucks and buses rather than cars, said Chisato Yoshifuji, a project manager at Toyota
