Man Filling Up Blue Toyota Mirai at Night

The 2019 Mirai, available now, is Toyota’s compact fuel cell vehicle. The 2019 Toyota Mirai offers exceptional MPG ratings and near-zero emissions, making it the perfect green alternative for Venice drivers who care about the environment as much as they do the commute. Read on to see what you can expect from the 2019 Mirai with its late 2018 release, then give us a call and schedule a test drive of your new green vehicle today.

What’s So Special About the Toyota Mirai?

While gas/electric hybrid vehicles are plentiful on the streets of Palms, hydrogen fuel cells are far less common. Unlike their hybrid counterparts, which use a plug-in system or internal combustion engine to charge the battery, vehicles like the Mirai use a combination of hydrogen, available at special fueling stations, oxygen from the air, and a fuel cell to generate power for the vehicle. This unique system delivers exceptional economy – the Mirai provides an EPA-estimated 312 mile range1 with a full tank – as well as zero harmful gasses, emitting only water vapor as a byproduct of operation.

But environmental friendliness isn’t the only benefit to owning a Mirai. Playa Vista shoppers can also take advantage of:

  • 3 Years/$15,000 Worth of Fuel at No Cost2
  • Fast Refueling – Fill up in Just Five Minutes3
  • California HOV Eligible4
  • California Clean Vehicle Rebate Eligible4
  • Up to 3 Years of ToyotaCare at No Cost5
  • 8-Year/100,000-mile FCV Warranty on Key Fuel Cell Components6
  • Three Years of Complimentary Customer Support
  • Three Years of Enhanced Roadside Assistance7
  • Three Year Trial Subscription of Toyota Safety Connect8
  • Subscription-Free Entune App Suite9

Toyota provides you with all the support and incentives you need to go green in a Mirai, but that isn’t the only reason to love this little compact.
