Fueled By Lemonade, Toyota Mirai Now Up To 1,100 Ownership Requests – Video
The last time we checked, the 2016 Toyota Mirai had 600 “requests” for ownership during its first full 10 days of availability – a result which didn’t impress us too much considering how the other big name “green” vehicles had done during their launches.
For reference: The Nissan LEAF netted 2,700 $99 deposits in the first three hours, while the Chevrolet Volt had a private list of more than 50,000 interested in the extended range EV – even before the company made the car available.
Now after the first 40 days of availability, Edmunds has an update on the demand for the fuel cell Mirai – 1,100 total requests. We will just go ahead and let readers judge the success of the program based on those numbers for themselves without commentary.
But on a positive spin sidenote, Toyota says the car can be “Powered By Lemonade” in a spot released Friday.
“What if I told you, I can take all your lemonade, turn it into hydrogen, and then turn that hydrogen into fuel, that can power a car?” – Toyota actor
…I would tell you that is wildly inefficient.
Edmunds, Hat tip to sven!
