Toyota Santa MonicaNow available for all drivers in the Culver City, Marina Del Rey, and Beverly Hills area, the 2016 Toyota Mirai represents the next step in the evolution of fuel efficient technology. With an electric battery and a hydrogen-powered conventional engine, the 2016 Mirai boasts incredible economy, refuels more quickly than plug-in hybrids, and promises modern performance and power. Read on to learn more, and apply to drive a 2016 Toyota Mirai today.

What’s a Hydrogen Fuel Cell Engine?

A hydrogen fuel cell engine functions the same way that a fossil-fuel burning engine does; both create propulsion through a chemical reaction. In the conventional engine, burning gasoline produces heat energy to power the engine. In a hydrogen fuel cell, however, the engine burns hydrogen to create its energy. Unlike gasoline, hydrogen is bountiful, in part because we can cleanly separate hydrogen from water molecules.

What are the Benefits of Hydrogen?

Further unlike fossil-fuel burning engines, hydrogen fuel cell cars utilize a clean source of energy. Burning hydrogen produces zero carbon emissions, which means that cars like the 2016 Toyota Mirai are monumentally more eco-friendly than gas-powered engines. Because hydrogen fuel cell engines function similarly to conventional ones – but with a renewable fuel source – driving a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle doesn’t require you to spend extra cash, and the car retains the power of its conventional cousins.

Enjoy peace of mind driving this affordable fuel-efficient vehicle – all while enjoying the best in performance and power. The 2016 Toyota Mirai comes with two hydrogen tanks that each promise a 312 mile range, and it delivers 151 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque. Like a gas-powered engine, a hydrogen fuel cell fuels rather quickly; for instance, you can fill up the 2016 Toyota Mirai in under 5 minutes.

To sweeten the deal, Toyota currently offers 3-years worth of complimentary fuel to pioneering Mirai drivers! Combine your new Mirai with an electric motor to increase its efficiency, and turn heads as you cruise through the Los Angeles area. Find conveniently placed refueling stations for the Mirai throughout the region, and humble-brag to your friends about how you were among the first to own the future of the automotive industry.
