Toyota Automakers Adding Hydrogen Fuel to the List

When the original Toyota Prius hit the market, it was met with a lot of attention, whether people liked it or not is one thing, but what was important about it, was that it provided an alternate way to fuel and power an automobile that we hadn’t really seen before in a real, everyday way. Now we have the 2016 Toyota Prius continuing the legacy as well as hybrid options to our other favorite Toyota vehicles here at Serra Toyota of Decatur. Vehicles like the 2016 Toyota RAV4 hybrid, and the 2016 Toyota Camry hybrid deliver an alternative, better-for-the-earth option that we love.

Now, Toyota automakers have a new vehicle with another new way to power to car. The newest way to power a vehicle is with a hydrogen fuel-cell it would seem. The 2016 Toyota Mirai fuel-cell sedan is making its debut soon. “Mirai” is Japanese for “the future”, and that’s exactly what Toyota automakers plan on bringing to us. Due to a limited number of hydrogen fueling stations in the U.S., the Mirai will have a slow rollout over the next couple of years as more stations pop up.

 

The look of the 2016 Toyota Mirai isn’t unlike the 2016 Toyota Camry. The vehicle has similar aesthetics, though the lines and profile seem a bit hardier. The interior looks kind of like that of a spaceship with several multi-touch screens delivering a wealth of stats and options like your fuel levels, weather, speed, and more. And even the seats are innovative. With eight-way power adjustment, and a “form in place” moulding method where urethane foam is injected into a seat cover offers maximum comfort.

 

The Mirai can drive 270 miles on a full charge. The hydrogen powered engine takes you to 60mph in less than 10 seconds. So while it’s not a speed demon, it’s not meant to be. This car is all about the next wave of vehicles which don’t produce harmful emissions. And it looks cool too.
