Great day out with Toyota W.A. Thanks Tony Newman and City Toyota for inviting us alongWe were very excited to see the Toyota Mirai on display at Toyota WA.
Named 2016 World Green Car, Toyota's Mirai (a Japanese word meaning "future") is a remarkable zero-emissions car with all the convenience of today's conventional vehicles, yet it runs on hydrogen instead of petrol or diesel.
Currently being sold in Japan, the US and some parts of Europe, the Mirai achieves maximum power well above 100kW from both its fuel-cell stack and its electric motor.
Hydrogen is as safe as any other automotive fuel and, unlike fossil fuels, it does not contribute to global warming during vehicle operation.

It is often easy to "like" a sponsor or supplier without really having anything substantial to base that endorsement on. I have a great recent personal experience of City Toyota www.facebook.com/citytoyota/ to share though. My cruiser had a blip, an error code on the dash which needed to be reset by disconnecting the batteries. Doing this enabled the security code on my radio - which the dealer I bought the vehicle from had not thought to provide to me. Multiple calls to that dealer and one closer to home left me feeling frustrated and ripped off. Calling Toyota WA did not help. I then called City Toyota Nedlands and in one call had it booked in early the next day (yesterday). Quick, efficient, cheaper than other quotes and they came in under the initial estimate! This was only a small job and has ended up as a long story but I was frustrated by how hard everybody other than City Toyota made it for me. Thanks, Guys! ... See MoreSee Less
