Just ahead of the Los Angeles Auto Show, Toyota unveils its brand new zero-emission vehicle: the Mirai.
The four-door, mid-size sedan is said to boast the performance of traditional internal combustion engines, but uses no gasoline and emits nothing but water vapor. The fuel cell electric vehicle is powered by hydrogen, re-fuels in about five minutes, and travels up to 300 miles on a full tank.
Toyota’s proprietary fuel cell stack allows the Mirai to boast a maximum output of 153hp, while accelerating from 0-60 in 9.0 seconds.
The 2016 Toyota Mirai hits dealers in Fall 2015, and start at $57,500. However, with potential state and federal incentives of $13,000 to many customers, the purchase price could fall to under $45,000.
