When you think about an environmentally friendly car, I’m sure the Toyota Prius is one that comes to mind! These hybrid cars have been very popular over the past few decades, but are no longer considered a novelty car.
Many car brands are looking to produce new and exciting products that have a ‘green’ initiative. Toyota is hoping their Mirai hydrogen fuel cell car will put them back to the top of the list of environmentally friendly cars.
These cars are not electric so they do require filling up on fuel like you’re probably used to. They are also bigger than most fuel-efficient cars measuring comparably to a regular sedan.
The car is currently only being sold in California and Toyota only plans on selling 3,000 models by the end of 2017. The car starts at $57,500.
Toyota is struggling to find hydrogen-fueling stations to make these cars worth buying. Electric cars like their competitor Tesla have charging stations all over the US. For Toyota to install hydrogen-fueling stations, it would cost $1.5 to $2 million dollars each.
Do you believe Toyota has the potential to make hydrogen fuel cell cars the top new pick for environmentally friendly cars?
