A hydrogen fuel cell car runs on electricity produced by hydrogen and oxygen rather than gasoline. Drivers who choose these cars still fill up at a station similar to gas pumps but using hydrogen fuel instead. Unlike conventional gasoline, the byproduct of hydrogen fuel cell cars is harmless water vapor. Hydrogen cars represent one facet of the ever-growing alternative energy market, and, right now, Toyota has one fuel cell car of its own: the Toyota Mirai. We currently have over 100 Mirai sedans here at Toyota Santa Monica, and we encourage you to find yours today.

A Clean, Green Way to Travel

When you fill-up at a hydrogen fuel station in Santa Monica, you pump the fuel into a stack of cells within the Mirai. The hydrogen fuel interacts with the oxygen already present in the air around us, entering through the intake grille, ultimately producing optimal power with no pollution. Excess energy gets stored in a battery system and is released in small dosages, ensuring excellent fuel economy. The beauty of this hydrogen/oxygen reaction is that the byproduct of it is only water vapor. Fuel cell cars continue to surge in popularity as a highly efficient and clean way to travel.

With its hydrogen fuel cell powertrain, the Mirai can travel 76 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) in the city and 71 MPGe on the highway.

Great Features to Enjoy

Not only is the Mirai a clean and eco-friendly way to travel, but it is also a tech-savvy one as well. All trims of this fuel cell car feature the new Toyota Safety Sense® 2.5+ suite, which offers returned and highly responsive drive-assist features to keep you protected. The standard Premium Audio system features 14 JBL® surround sound speakers, a 12.3-inch display screen, and compatibility with Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

Find Yours Today

One of the best things about the 2021 Toyota Mirai is its exclusivity. With the slow emergence of hydrogen fuel cell cars, sales of the Mirai are limited to only a select few dealerships in the states of California and Hawaii. Ours is one of these few dealerships, and we invite you to visit Toyota Santa Monica to see all that the new Toyota Mirai can do for you. Schedule a test drive and visit us today to learn more.
