Toyota fuel cell car will be called Mirai

Article by Christian A., on August 4, 2014

Toyota didn’t release yet a name for its brand new fuel cell car, but according to Bloomberg the new vehicle will be called Mirai. For those who don’t know, mirai is the Japanese word for future and it appears that hit was already trademarked by Toyota in the United States.

The US version of the vehicle will be called FCV and is expected to go on sale in California in the fall of 2015. Toyota will introduce the new Mirai in Japan, in April 2015, while Europe will receive it in the summer 2015.

In Japan, the Toyota FCV will cost approximately seven million yen ($69,000 or 50,000 euros) and at the beginning, Toyota will limit the sales of its new vehicle in the regions where a hydrogen-refueling infrastructure is under development.

Refueling the vehicle would take approximately three minutes and enough for a range of 300 km or 186 mph. The good news is that the tailpipe emissions are only water vapors.
