Toyota’s Mirai is a hit- production rate to increase
In the 3 month that the Mirai has been on sale in select regions, close to 1900 people have decided to adopt this alternative energy family sedan. This far exceeds the expected initial production run of the hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle. The Mirai order request portal, which went live just three months ago, is now directing customers to a wait list, as production catches up to this high demand.
Toyota anticipates an allotment of nearly 1,000 model year 2016 Mirai in the U.S. The existing order requests are being reviewed, and Toyota will begin placing the first trailblazing customers in the Mirai driver’s seat this month. That’s right- you have to be selected by Toyota if you wish to purchase one of these, so get your order requests in early if you’re in an available region.
In January 2015, Toyota announced a Mirai global production capacity increase in an effort to satisfy overwhelming demand in all markets. Potential Mirai customers can still put in a request www.toyota.com/mirai. A wait list will be created for the next Mirai allotment and potential customers contacted when production is available.
