There's no denying that Toyota is a leader in green car technology. Aside from the Prius popularity, the Japanese automaker is pleased to introduce consumers and dealerships alike to the Toyota Mirai, the latest-edition to the efficient Toyota family. The Mirai is Toyota's first hydrogen fuel-cell-powered vehicle sold in North America. Here's what you need to know.

The Mirai is powered by a 114-kilowatt fuel cell -- located under the front seats -- which sends power to an electric motor that operates the front wheels. It also packs a 1.6-kwh lithium-ion battery, which can keep the fuel cell operating at an optimal output level. So how much is the Mirai good for? It can get up to 312 miles on a full tank of hydrogen, pending EPA certification. Inside, the futuristic Toyota boasts three display screens, a four-seat layout -- which seems to be a common theme in Toyota's new models --, a premium audio system with navigation, intelligent touch controls for audio and climate control, and much more.

Currently, the Mirai is limited to the roads of California. To inquire about availability and pricing, contact our Bel Air, Maryland showroom. Be sure to also keep a close eye on our new inventory for the release of the Toyota Mirai.
