Fast Company magazine has just named Toyota as one of the world’s most innovative companies as they lead the way in fuel-cell technology. As Toyota did with the Prius, the Toyota Mirai (Japanese for ‘future’) will be the future for zero-emission vehicles.
With 1,500 orders in Japan the first month of sales, Toyota is confident the release of this innovative vehicle in the fall of 2016 for California dealerships will have a similar success story. 3,000 units will be produced for California buyers priced at $57,000.
To fuel the Mirai, there is an obvious need for hydrogen fueling stations and it is roughly estimated for California to have 50 fueling stations by the release of the Mirai. Additional 12-25 stations are planned to be built by 2020 stimulating the growth of Toyota’s fuel-cell technology for the future. Developers are confident that 75 hydrogen fuel stations can sustain a population of 17,000 to 24,000 hydrogen-fueled vehicles.
