For the return voyage on our alt-fuel road trip from Santa Monica to Lake Tahoe, Dan Edmunds and I switch cars. This time, I'll be in our long-term 2016 Toyota Mirai and he'll take the 2016 Tesla Model X.
There's a wrinkle, though.

I was the last one to make it out of the house this morning, and as I walked through the garage, I found my kid had already taken my spot in the passenger seat of our long-term 2016 Toyota Mirai.
Ed and I were dropping her off just a few miles down the road, so rather than ruin both our mornings by issuing a firm "Move your butt" command, I climbed into the backseat instead.
What I found was a pleasant surprise.

Heavy steering can be good. And heavy steering can be bad. In the case of the 2016 Toyota Mirai it is both. Let me explain...

If you're going to pay nearly $60,000 for a Toyota, it had better not have the interior of a $30,000 Prius. Thankfully, our long-term 2016 Toyota Mirai does not. Indeed, its cabin is what I would call "Lexus Lite," wherein it's a clear step above other Toyotas yet not quite to the level of the company's luxury division.

Our new 2016 Toyota Mirai is a very different kind of car. It's not only driven by an electric motor, it uses a hydrogen fuel cell to generate the electricity. Yet as revolutionary as it is from a technology standpoint, it's still very much a traditional sedan once you're behind the wheel.

Santa Monica, Huntington Beach, Santa Monica, Playa del Rey, Burbank, Irvine, Costa Mesa and back to Santa Monica.
In just two days our new long-term 2016 Toyota Mirai and I covered this route together, which added up to 237.7 miles of driving.
Spend that many miles in that little amount of time behind the wheel and you learn a lot about a car. Here are five things I learned about the fuel-cell powered Mirai.

With sales starting late last year, the 2016 Toyota Mirai qualifies as the first fuel cell hybrid electric vehicle (FCHEV) available for public sale in North America. That's a big deal. The technology has been simmering in the background for a couple of decades, but Toyota has now reached the point where it feels comfortable selling it outright.
