    I've been visiting in NH for the past 5-6 weeks and haven't seen one here yet. The only one I've seen was in San Jose, where I was staying all of this year until I drove over to NH last month. The single 2016 that I've seen on the road matches the number of Mirai I've seen. I had to look that one up to figure out what I was looking at after seeing a Toyota with "fuel cell" badging on it in Saratoga, CA. On another note, I have seen 6 Volts at one time, 5 parked in driveways and 1 being driven, within a 1/2 block in an Almaden (San Jose) neighborhood road.

    Have seen only 1 so far. Was a gray Prius on I-271. Very few on Lots here, and barely any discounts on sticker price. my 2004 has 227,000 on it and runs great, so no big hurry for a new car. I like the blue color the best if I were to get one.

    You drove from San Jose to New Hampshire. Isn't that about 42 hours ? That would take me about 5 days.

    i checked my local dealer, they have 7 in stock, no idea if they've sold any.
    tesla's are like dog poop around here, but to be fair, they've been selling them a lot longer than gen 4.
    hardly ever see a volt, and maybe a handful of leafs, i-3's and pips.

    I have been tempted to go to Virginia the dealer down there has around 140. to 150. They sent me a quote the other day then the next day it was sold.

    Took me 6 days, and a lot more hours than that going on a more southern route through AZ-NM-TX panhandle etc. to avoid winter conditions. I stopped for a 1.5-2 hour run each day and camped in the car with my dog. MA was the most annoying state to look for a place to park for the night. Everywhere else you could park at a Walmart with a bunch of RVs, trucks, and other campers, but the ones in MA that I tried didn't allow overnight parking, and the roads were really convoluted and confusing.

    I've officially seen 8 4th gens on the roads here in the greater Seattle area. 6 of those 8 have been in the last 2 weeks. Seems to me that the adoption rate hasn't been the quickest in this area.

    I have yet to see a gen 4 on the road apart from mine. I drive over 100 miles every day between Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia so it's pretty strange I haven't seen any others. There were quite a number at the dealer where I bought mine and even more at another local dealer. The majority of those I saw at dealers were Sea Glass Pearl, which is not so popular according to my poll in this forum.

    I did a bit of leap frogging on the thruway with a black one for 20 miles yesterday. I have to say the black color is absolutely amazing on he highway.

    It was a 4, and to my eye the lack of fog lights with that color made it even more attractive in my rear view mirror. I am not going to second guess my color choice but wholly batmobile that black was nice.

    I agree - I had my second 2016 sighting in the Atlanta metro area yesterday. I don't think I've seen this straight-on back view before, and it was actually kind of cool in black. While in motion (brake lights off), the pointy light stripe on the tail lights was striking on this overcast day.

    My first Atlanta sighting was back in Feb or early March, silver.
