When Toyota began making plans for the release of the 2016 Toyota Mirai fuel cell car, the company predicted it would only need to allocate 1,000 units for the US market. Instead, the US Toyota Mirai demand is far higher than anticipated, causing some customers to have to sign up for a wait list.
In total, Toyota has received over 1,900 orders for the 2016 Mirai from the US market. However, due to the limited amount of models set aside for the US market, not everyone will be receiving their Mirai on time. The website that had been used to place orders only two months ago is now presenting potential buyers with the opportunity to sign up for a wait list. These wait list consumers will be notified when production is available.
Toyota already announced this past January that the company would need to increase production of the 2016 Mirai in an attempt to scramble to keep up with overwhelming global demand for the fuel cell hybrid. One thing is for sure, global Toyota Mirai demand spells success for the hybrid and for the company as a whole. Learn more about the ground-breaking car at Hurlbert Toyota!
