The Toyota Mirai is a fuel cell vehicle that is the result of over two decades of research and development. Therefore it is fitting that the car is named 'Mirai', which means 'future' in Japanese. The car could mark a turning point in automotive technology what with its hydrogen powering system and fueling infrastructure.
The Toyota Mirai is equipped with a 153 horsepower plant, can cover 483 km on a single tank of hydrogen and can be refueled in only five minutes. It emits enough electricity to power a house for a week and emits nothing but water -- however it still offers dynamic handling and a low center of gravity.
The Toyota Mirai will be available for sale in late 2015 for $57,000, with Californians being the first able to lay their hands on this futuristic vehicle. The vehicle will then be available in the Northeast USA in 2016.
