Toyota Mirai Fuel Cell Vehicle Orders Reach 200 Units

December 15th, 2014 by

Toyota is known as a pioneer in the eco-friendly field, spearheading the hybrid car movement with the Prius. Now, the Japanese carmaker is heading another kind of movement involving a different type of fuel—hydrogen. Toyota’s first production fuel cell vehicle, the 2016 Toyota Mirai, will enter production later this month, making a huge step for the alternative fuel segment.

The fuel cell vehicle is set to begin production at an old plant that was originally used to build 500 Lexus LFA cars between 2010 and 2012, in the same small quantities as the Lexus LFA. Toyota has already been reported it will sell only 3,000 Mirais in the United States by the end of 2017, after it arrives in showrooms at the end of 2015. There are already 200 Toyota Mirai fuel cell vehicle orders in, though, causing the Japanese carmaker to already consider delaying delivery. Each Mirai will be built by hand, enhancing the uniqueness of the already futuristic car.
