Beyond the Prius – Toyota Mirai Fuel Cell Vehicle

Toyota Fuel Cell Vehicle
Toyota debuted one of their Fuel Cell Vehicle Concept Designs at the North American International Auto Show earlier this year and now the new Toyota Mirai, their production Fuel Cell vehicle is getting ready to hit the markets late next year.

With the electric Toyota Prius, the number one hybrid vehicle on the market, you would think that Toyota would continue to bank on electric energy as the alternate energy source of the future. Well, Toyota’s new hydrogen Fuel Cell vehicle, the Toyota Mirai, is starting to prove you wrong.

The Toyota Mirai fuel cell vehicle is certainly one of a kind. It’s a midsized sedan that runs on hydrogen fuel cell technology combined with hybrid synergy drive. It can go up to 300 miles on a charge and re-charges in about 5 minutes, unlike your typical electric car that takes 30 minutes on a DC Quick-Charger to get to 80% of its charge. This means that the new Toyota Fuel Cell vehicle will revolutionize what an alternate energy vehicle can do. The new Toyota Fuel Cell Vehicle will become a more feasible vehicle to take on longer trips, not just to the office and back. Well, at least it will when hydrogen charging stations become more widely available.

 

The Toyota Mirai will go on sale in California next fall, but until then keep checking back with our blog here at Haddad Toyota to stay up-to-date on the latest Toyota news and technology.
