California trailblazers waiting to get behind the wheel of the Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle now have a destination for pick up and pre-order.
In October 2015, Toyota Mirai will roll into select dealerships in the Golden State. Northern California drivers will meet Mirai at San Francisco Toyota, Roseville Toyota, Stevens Creek Toyota or Toyota of Sunnyvale. Farther south, Longo Toyota, Toyota Santa Monica, Toyota of Orange and Tustin Toyota will welcome Mirai customers.
These initial dealers were selected based on advanced technology vehicle sales experience and proximity to hydrogen infrastructure.
Production of the Mirai is limited and vehicles will be placed with select, eligible customers. Therefore, drivers are encouraged to make their requests early to save a potential parking spot in transportation history.
All Mirais will be sold and delivered through the authorized Mirai dealer of the customer’s choice.
Mirai U.S. sales volume is planned for approximately 3,000 units through 2017.
The four-door, mid-sized Toyota Mirai delivers performance similar to traditional internal combustion engines – re-fueling in about five minutes and a range of up to 300 miles on a full tank.
Customers can take advantage of Mirai’s $499 per month/36 month lease option, with $3649 due at lease signing, or purchase the vehicle for $57,500. With combined state and federal incentives of $13,000 available to many customers, the purchase price could potentially fall to under $45,000. Both options come with free hydrogen fuel for “up to three years.”
