Learn How Toyota is Betting Big on Hydrogen

When it comes to eco-friendly vehicles at Toyota, most everyone about the Toyota Prius – the groundbreaking EV that quite literally paved the way for many of the environmentally conscious vehicles that followed. But while the Prius may get all the spotlight, there’s another Toyota environmentally friendly vehicle that is about to reach out and grab your attention. Meet the Toyota Mirai. If you don’t know much about the Mirai, that’s ok. We’re here to tell you. 

 

The Toyota Mirai is a groundbreaking hydrogen fuel cell vehicle that is making waves in just the same way the Prius was years before. After its big debut unveiling at the 2014 LA Auto Show, the Mirai started production in 2015. Since then, more and more buzz has built about the hydrogen fueled car that many see as a gateway to the future.
 
At first glance, the Mirai might resemble something you’ve seen before, but once you’re behind the wheel you’ll quickly see this is unlike anything else you’ve ever driven. If you’re into the details, you’ll be interested to know that the Mirai uses Toyota’s Fuel Cell System which utilizes both fuel cell and hybrid technology.
