    So the dealer I work at just received the new Toyota Mirai. We are 1 out of I believe 8 dealers in CA that will be selling these. For those that don't know much about the Mirai they run on hydrogen. Basically a Prius on steroids lol. Thoughts?

    I am undecided. Looking at the front grille and rear bumper the bottom half looks badass an aggressive and then Toyota realized they need to fit there logo headlights and taillights so made it taller. Personally not for me but I am sure they will sell.

    Satoshi, debadged, rear view mirror bracket, tail gate hose clamps, trimmed mud flaps.
    Why does Toyota insist these EV's and H cars need to be so damn ugly?

    And the last picture should be added to 'Asshole Parking' thread haha.

    It's not just Toyota it is most major automakers. Look at the BMW i3, Mitsubishi i-MieV just to name a few can't put all the blame on Toyota.

    Yes the Toyota Prius and the Honda Insight were leaders in the shear ugliness that are hybrids. But they have been surpassed By many EV cars.
    I don't understand, do the designer sit in a room and decide OK this is a hybrid it can't look like a normal vehicle lets make horrendously ugly so that everyone talks about how ugly it is...

    Digging up an old thread. Did anyone here have first hand experience with this technology? How is the reliability, refueling experience, performance of this vehicle?
