Mirai impresses, quietly, in initial reviews
2016 Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel-cell cars are on California roads now, and Car and Driver was among the first media outlets to test-drive the limited-production sedan, doing instrumented testing in addition to seat-of-the-pants impressions. Test drivers drove the Mirai around greater Los Angeles, stopping at several hydrogen fuelling stations along the way. About the worst thing they could say was that it’s not a sports car, evidenced by its zero-to-96-km/h time of a slow-poke 9.4 seconds. Positive comments abounded, such as “pleasant,” “comfortable” and “isolation-chamber quiet.” Suspension, steering feel and ride quality were also favourably noted.
