Toyota pulls the wraps off Mirai hydrogen fuel cell, arrives in 2016

Rumors in the past oddly seem to have held to be true as reports in July suggested Toyota’s new hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle was to be called the Mirai–and it is!

meet the all0new 2015 Toyota Mirai, Toyota’s new hydrogen-powered car that produces water out of its waste gate. Mirai is Japanese for “future,” a very fitting name since Toyota feels this new Mirai represents the future direction of the auto industry in the years ahead.

A part of this project is a new pilot program to built a completely new hydrogen refueling infrastructure in the Northeast US. States include Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island.

The Mirai is set to go on sale in these states in 2015 while Toyota confirmed to be building 12 stations in around New York and Boston alone to support the launch.

As of now, Toyota claims the Mirai should be capable of going up to 300 miles on one tank while refueling is similar to a normal gasoline car.
