First Test Drive: 2016 Toyota Mirai Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle on Everyman Driver

2016 Toyota Mirai on Everyman Driver, Dave Erickson

The Mirai hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle combines hydrogen and oxygen to make electricity onboard, while emitting nothing but water vapor. It has the highest EPA estimated driving range rating of any zero emission electric vehicle on the market, at 312 miles, and offers an EPA estimated 67 mpge city/highway/combined.


Standard safety equipment includes antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, front and rear side airbags and a rear view camera. Active safety equipment includes lane-departure alert, a blind-spot monitor, adaptive cruise control and a frontal collision mitigation system with automatic braking. Special hydrogen sensors onboard will issue warnings and shut down the hydrogen tanks’ stop valves if they detect a hydrogen leak.

On the outside, it’s aerodynamic design still says Toyota but with that little extra ‘look at me, I’m different’ attitude. Standard exterior features include LED headlamps with automatic high beam feature, LED daytime running lights, heated outside mirrors with power folding feature, a touch sensor lock and unlock door handles, and 17 inch allow wheels.

Inside, features a push button start, noise reducing glass, 8-way power heated Softex seats with power lumbar, heated power tilt and telescoping steering wheel with the usual suspects for bluetooth and cruise control.
