2016 Toyota Mirai Fuel Cell Vehicle First Video Review

Toyota was bold when it decided to launch the Mirai fuel-cell vehicle, despite the fact that the refueling infrastructure is currently seriously lacking, even in California, one of its primary markets. That’s set to improve within the next two years, but you can buy the car now, so we would like to know if it’s any good to drive.

AutoGuide says it is, with a futuristic styling both inside and out, and a distinct air of being cutting edge. It’s also reportedly not bad to drive either, with a low center of gravity and no huge battery pack to lug around, it’s nippy and fun.

The latter was a distinct intent with the engineers behind the car – to make it enjoyable to operate by the driver.

It’s obviously too early to tell, but aside from the striking looks, there seems to be a lot to like about the Mirai, particularly if you live in a US state which offers rebates and incentives for green vehicles, like California, where you may (or may not, if the government kills tax breaks) get $13,000 off the $58,000-ish price tag.
