For Cars, Movies and Cool… it’s Fireball Tim!

Fireball heads to an exclusive event put on by Car & Driver Magazine and Toyota to reveal the tech behind the 2017 TOYOTA MIRAI. Meets up with Car Design Legend Syd Mead!

Some tech about the Mirai for those wanting more… The Toyota Mirai (From mirai (未来?), Japanese for “future”) is a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, one of the first such vehicles to be sold commercially.[6][7] The Mirai was unveiled at the November 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show.[8] Toyota planned to build 700 vehicles for global sales during 2015.[9]

Under the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) cycle, the 2016 model year Mirai has a total range of 502 km (312 mi) on a full tank, with a combined city/highway fuel economy rating of 66 mpg‑US (3.6 L/100 km; 79 mpg‑imp) equivalent (MPG-equivalent), making the Mirai the most fuel efficient hydrogen fuel cell vehicle rated by the EPA, and the one with the largest range.[5]

Sales in Japan began on 15 December 2014 at a price of ¥6.7 million (~US$57,400) at Toyota Store and Toyopet Store locations. The Japanese government plans to support the commercialization of fuel-cell vehicles with a subsidy of ¥2 million (~US$19,600).[10] Retail sales in the U.S. began in August 2015 at a price of US$57,500 before any government incentives. Deliveries to retail customers began in California in October 2015.[11] Toyota scheduled to release the Mirai in the Northeastern States in the first half of 2016.[9] As of June 2016, the Mirai is available for retail sales in the UK, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, and Norway.[12] Pricing in Germany starts at €60,000 (~US$75,140) plus VAT (€78,540) .[13]
