The personal automobile has certainly come a long way. What was once a luxury only afforded to the rich is now a common commodity, becoming a central pillar in the life of the modern American. 
Our cars have evolved with our society as well, reflecting what we care about and what we need. As a Toyota dealership in Oregon, we know better than most what that is today. That’s why we are thrilled to tell you a little bit about the new Toyota Mirai, one of the most exciting cars to hit today’s market.

So what sets the Toyota Mirai apart from the crowd? There’s plenty of things to like about it, from it’s sleek and stylish design to the beautiful interior. What does the Mirai have that no other car has, though? Simple: a state of the art hydrogen fuel cell. 

Want to know more? Here are just some of the ways that we know the Mirai is about to make a splash! 

Not Science Fiction, Science Fact

We are lucky enough to live in a world where devices once relegated to sci-fi are now a reality. Who would have thought thirty or forty years ago that we would be able to carry around a computer in our pockets? 

Our transportation has evolved as well. The Toyota Mirai is fueled by a hydrogen fuel cell -- you read that right, a fuel cell! It might sound like a flight of fancy, but it couldn’t be more real. Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the entire universe, giving the Toyota Mirai ample sources of fuel. It can be obtained from water, from plants, and even manure. As your Toyota dealership in Oregon, we’re inviting you to join us in the new world of fuel. 

Despite the futuristic feel, hydrogen fuel cell technology has actually been around for years. In addition to spacecrafts, it’s been used to power generators and ordinary heavy machinery. This history gives us confidence to take a bold step forward, bringing the revolutionary fuel source to a consumer vehicle. It’s our hope that in a few years, a hydrogen fuel cell powered car is as commonplace as a computer you can store in your pocket. 

Greener than Green

Conventional gas engines have serious environmental problems. Even the most fuel efficient engine is still a source of pollution and, at the end of the day, there is only a finite source of gasoline. 

We’re a Toyota dealership in Oregon, so we know a thing or two about green living! For the longest time, even the most stalwart eco-advocate has had to settle for a less than ideal car. It’s hard to feel like your compost bin and natural detergent make a difference when your car still spews out exhaust. With the Toyota Mirai, the wait for a new kind of environmentally-friendly vehicle is finally over.

Ordinary car exhaust puts carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, and other harmful gasses into the air we all breathe. The Toyota Mirai only emits one thing: water! No longer do car owners need to feel guilty for hitting the road. With zero CO2 emissions, you can rest easy when taking a road trip to visit grandma and grandpa.

Even producing the hydrogen itself is cleaner than conventional fuels. There’s no dangers of shortages or running out, hydrogen is practically everywhere. Methane can be sourced from landfills and steam reformed, leaving behind pure hydrogen gas. Organic materials like plants or, yes, even animal waste, can be exposed to high temperatures to trigger a reaction that separates the hydrogen in them. We even have the technology to break apart water molecules, separating the hydrogen for use in fuel cells. Hydrogen fuel is truly paving the way for greener, more sustainable transportation.

Benefits and Support

We know that adapting to any new technology can be intimidating. By stepping away from a traditional car engine, you’re stepping away from years of knowledge and experience that you’ve built up since you first sat behind the wheel. It’s a big step, but you will not be alone. As your Toyota dealership in Oregon, you can count on us to stand beside you every step of the way.

The moment you decide to go with the Toyota Mirai, you’ll have three years of ToyotaCare to rely on. That means three years, or thirty-five thousand miles, of no cost maintenance. You’ll never have to worry about having someone there for you for any problems or repairs you might need. 

You’ll have three years of enhanced roadside assistance, regardless of mileage. No need to worry about being stranded out in the middle of nowhere; we’ve got your back! And, should you need it, you’ll have Mirai’s complimentary Rental Experience for up to twenty-one days. In addition to three years of ToyotaCare, you’ll have an eight-year warranty on all the key components of the car. There are a lot of moving parts with this new technology and we’re happy to help take care of them. 

Whenever you might need us, just head over to your Toyota dealership in Oregon. Regardless of what may come your way, you’ll have our support behind you. 

That’s not all, though! We’re willing to go way beyond just the maintenance and mechanical support. Just for putting your faith in the technology, we’re willing to foot your fuel bill for the first three years. Whenever you need a top off, just pull into your hydrogen fuel station of choice and put it on our card. If you don’t know where your nearest hydrogen fuel station is, you can download the Entune App with your complimentary Safety Connect subscription. We’ll help take you to the nearest station. Once you’re there, fueling up is a breeze. It only takes about five minutes and the computer will do most of the work. Just place the nozzle over the receptacle, lock it on, and wait for a click to know you’re all set to go.

The Mirai is sure to set the world abuzz, so what are you waiting for? Get on the road with one of your own.
