If you’re looking for a new eco-friendly car, it’s likely that you’ve considered the all-new Toyota Mirai fuel cell vehicle. This was definitely the case for Marianne and David Ellis, the two lucky individuals who recently won a brand-new Mirai, making them the first ones to get behind the wheel of the brand-new vehicle.
These two Toyota Mirai winners have been supporters of going green for years and were recently looking for a new eco-friendly car. While at the annual Environmental Media Awards earlier this year, Marianne Ellis bought the winning ticket as a potential 30th wedding anniversary gift—and it looks like it was a great choice!
“For us, it’s about being at the cutting edge of change,” said Marianne Ellis. “It’s a chance to support environmental causes and clean energy, while showing it’s possible to make a car like this part of your lifestyle.”
The Mirai combines hydrogen gas from tanks with oxygen to produce electricity to power the vehicle. With a range of 300 miles, the fuel cell vehicle only emits water vapor as exhaust, keeping the environment safe.
