New Toyota Mirai Fuel-Cell Car from $57,500 or $499 Monthly Lease

Just hours after its Japanese market introduction, Toyota has released details for the US-spec Mirai fuel-cell car, including pricing.

When it goes on sale in the fourth quarter of 2015, the Mirai will carry a base MSRP of $57,500, but Toyota says it could qualify for combined state and federal incentives of up to $13,000, in which case, the purchase price would potentially drop to $45,000.

Alternatively, Toyota will offer a $499 per month/36 month lease option, with $3649 due at lease signing.

The Japanese brand said the Mirai will offer owners a range of services, including the following:

  • 24/7 concierge service, with calls answered by a dedicated fuel cell representative;  
  • 24/7 enhanced roadside assistance, including towing, battery, flat tire assistance, trip interruption reimbursement, and loaner vehicle;
  • Three years of Toyota Care maintenance, which covers all recommended factory maintenance, up to 12,000 miles annually;
  • Eight-year/100,000-mile warranty on fuel cell components;
  • Entune and three years of complimentary Safety Connect, including hydrogen station map app; and,
  • Complimentary hydrogen fuel for up to three years.

The Mirai will be available to customers in California beginning in fall of 2015 with additional markets from the country’s Northeast region, including New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, to be gradually added as Toyota expands its hydrogen-refueling infrastructure.

Power comes from a 153hp electric motor that draws juice from a fuel cell stack that combines hydrogen gas from two tanks with oxygen to produce electricity, with the car’s only by-product being water vapor.

Toyota quotes a 0-60mph (96km/h) sprint time of 9.0 seconds, a passing time of 3 seconds from 25-40mph (40-65km/h), and a driving range of around 300 miles (483 km) on a single fill-up.

One of the Mirai’s chief competitors will be Honda’s upcoming FCV that’s scheduled to go on sale in 2016.
