Review of Toyota Mirai

The next generation car produced by Toyota is Toyota Mirai. The word “Mirai” means “future”. It is one of the largest & major invention by Toyota. This article will provide you Review of Toyota Mirai.

Toyota Mirai runs on Hydrogen which is one of the latest features. This feature differentiates itself from other Japanese used cars  manufactured in Japan and all over the world. It is the world’s first hydrogen produced fueled car. The car was proclaimed in November 2014 in Los Angeles Auto show. The car has the ability to run a whopping 300 kilometers on one full tank of Hydrogen as against other Japanese used cars which needs to be refueled more frequently. It removes the attention of always looking at your fuel tank to know your current fuel gauge and also prevent to stop looking out for the nearest filling station. The car produces water, not just any type of water but water pure enough for an individual to drink. The car produces  H2O quantity of 240 ml for every 4 km it moves. It is also much faster to refill compared to other Japanese used cars. The time it would take for you to refill your car is less than 33% of the time it would require to fill other vehicles that runs on petrol. 

Apart from this wonderful feature that sets it different from most other cars, it has the body style of a 4 door sedan. It uses a 1.6 kWh Nickel-metal hydride battery and the dimensions of the vehicle include a length size of 4,890 mm, a height size of 1,535 mm and a width of 1,815 mm. The car weigh about 1,850 kg and it built on the FCV technology which Toyota started to develop in 1992 and it uses hydrogen fuel-cell to power cars which gives the car the ability to run on hydrogen alone. 

In November 2014, Toyota released photos which showed the process of inventing the hydrogen fuel cell during a press release. Toyota Mirai set the record of been the hydrogen fuel cell car to first feature in the event in April 2015 in the NASCAR race in Richmond, US during the Toyota Owners 400. It is energy efficient and accelerates from 40 km per hour to 64 km per hour in just 3 seconds and it does not emit any CO is very comfortable, nice, incredibly smooth and quiet. 

The Toyota Mirai has also been tested and has recorded a high collision safety level and the design and structure of the car was also designed with top safety specifications. This includes the hydrogen tank being well positioned such that leakages could be easily dissipated. It also has hydrogen sensors which activates warning signals and have the ability to shut off the stop valves of the main tank. There is only one issue regarding this car and it is the price or car cost. The car costs about $60,000, however it worth the cost.

    You need to talk to real owners of the Toyota Mirai to get an idea about how bad the hydrogen fuel infrastructure is today in Southern California. They may be improving the technology, but there are way too many cars on the road for the number and fuel filling ability of the stations. It routinely takes me over 20 minutes to fill my tank due to how many cars are in line to get fuel. I have seen lines of 5 to 10 cars trying to get fuel. The system to tell us which stations have fuel is almost worthless. Dozens of times I have gone to stations that report that they have fuel and could not get fuel at that station. I have call in to the station manager and been told that the station is operational when I was standing at the pump unable to get fuel. It was not so bad a year ago when there were not so many hydrogen cars on the road. The situation is truly horrible. I have asked Toyota to take my car back and they have refused.
