Toyota announces its first hydrogen fuel electric car, 2016 Toyota Mirai, to get on track and participate in Toyota Owners 400 NASCAR cup series race on 25th of April, at Richmond International Raceway.
Vice President of marketing, performance and guest experience, ED Laukes, said: “Having a hydrogen cell vehicle pace the Toyota Owners 400 is a historic moment for both Toyota and NASCAR and we are proud it’s the Toyota Mirai.”
Toyota’s press release also reports that Toyota Mirai is a four-door sedan with a great mileage of 300 miles on a full tank and it can be refueled in only five minutes. The new hydrogen powered vehicle does not need gasoline and emits water vapor when it is on road.
Toyota claims to launch the new hydrogen powered sedan in California later this year so that the buyers enjoy the ride of this environment friendly vehicle.
