If you’re fortunate enough to live in one of the California burgs where Toyota will deliver the Mirai this October, you now know just when and where you can pull the trigger. Toyota says that it’ll start taking American requests for the hydrogen fuel cell car through its website on July 20th.
And we mean only through the website — dealers will “explore” the $57,000 sale with you and hand over the keys if you commit, but you can’t simply walk in and get a vehicle. It’s just as well. The automaker only expects to sell 3,000 Mirais in the US by the end of 2017, so you’d be hard-pressed to get one if you had to compete with the same people test-driving Camrys and Priuses.
