Toyota Santa MonicaThe revolutionary Toyota Mirai represents the future of fuel efficient technology, and with its nuanced blend of exterior style and innovative economy, it is perfect for your Los Angeles commute. But the Mirai doesn’t just boast about its efficiency and incredible fuel cell technology — it lives up to its hype, and experts are recognizing this. This is why the Mirai recently won the 2016 World Green Car award in recognition of its innovative approach to fuel efficiency.

The World Green Car Awards

The World Car Awards are annual prizes that have been given out since 2004. A community of automotive journalists from around the world vote on these awards to decide the winners each year. These experts come together to recognize the best cars in a number of categories, which include World Performance Car, World Car Design of the Year, and World Luxury Car. The World Green Car is awarded to the most fuel efficient vehicle, and the competition this year included plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles.

The first prize in this category was awarded to the 2017 Toyota Mirai, which earned a stunning 170 first place votes. This was more than twice as much as its closest competition, which happened to be another efficient Toyota vehicle — the 2017 Toyota Prius pulled in 80 first place votes.

The 2017 Mirai

It’s no surprise that the Mirai is already earning incredible praise — and not just for its forward-thinking technology. Its exterior features a striking design, and its spacious interior comes with an impressive selection of convenience and comfort-enhancing features. These features include a premium JBL audio system, integrated navigation, and the Entune app suite. Further, the Mirai boasts impressive engineering under its hood:

  • Its electric motor engine offers drivers 151 horsepower.
  • Its electric motor is powered entirely by a hydrogen fuel cell, which is fueled by a pair of hydrogen tanks that produce zero emissions.
  • The pair of fuel tanks give the Mirai a range of 614 miles and 312 MPGe.
  • Fueling the Mirai is easy and only takes 5 minutes.

Producing no pollution, and with such an incredible range, the 2017 Toyota Mirai is perfect for running errands on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, taking a trip to Culver City, or enjoying a weekend getaway out to Marina del Rey — all while protecting the gorgeous environment we live in.
