The 2018 Toyota Mirai, based on its maker, is the way forward for automobiles; we strongly recommend ready to see whether or not the longer term is powered by hydrogen or electrical energy.
The 2018 Toyota Mirai is a 4-seat mid-size 4-door sedan powered solely by hydrogen, making it the corporate’s solely full zero-emission vehicle. It’s bought solely in areas of California the place hydrogen fueling stations exist (about three dozen as of January 2018), so it’s restricted to journey inside the radius of that community. The Mirai is obtainable solely in a single trim degree, with few choices.
We price the Mirai at four.eight out of a attainable 10 factors, a seemingly low rating for Toyota’s halo car and know-how showcase. It loses factors for its styling, efficiency, and luxury, although it will get a prime inexperienced rating. No safety ratings for the Mirai have been issued, so we will’t give it a rating on that entrance. (Learn extra about how we fee automobiles.)
The Mirai scores decrease than all its rivals, together with the Honda Readability Gasoline Cell, which is just a nicer, extra capacious, higher-performing, and longer-range hydrogen vehicle. The Tesla Mannequin S and fewer-costly Mannequin three can use their maker’s nationwide Supercharger quick-charging community for lengthy-distance street journeys with zero tailpipe emissions, whereas the Chevrolet Bolt EV is significantly inexpensive than the Mirai and performs significantly higher.
The Mirai is a low-quantity vehicle for Toyota, which sells as many Camrys in three days because it does Mirais in a yr. Most U.S. drivers won’t ever see one on the street, and that will not change within the close to future. At this time, and certain for years to return, the Mirai’s major problem is the price and complexity of building a community of hydrogen fueling stations. California, together with Toyota and Honda, is investing many hundreds of thousands of dollars in establishing that infrastructure.
Till hydrogen fueling is pervasive and simply accessible in quantity, a 2018 Toyota Mirai stays a considerably dangerous guess on one firm’s imaginative and prescient of zero-emission vehicle know-how. That imaginative and prescient ignores the truth of just about 1 million plug-in electric automobiles on U.S. roads, so clever buyers might need to hedge their bets for a couple of years—or lease moderately than purchase.
