Local Mirai Owner Tells His Story

If there is one thing that makes living in California great, it's the beaches. Maybe that's one of the reasons Californians are so concerned about climate change -- sea-level rise could threaten our favorite sandy surf spots!

We're lucky to live in one of the few places in the world with a hydrogen fuel station network developed enough to allow us to drive Toyota Mirai, and many Los Angeles residents are.

Take Mark Mobley, of Garden Grove.

"I love it, and I feel like I'm part of the solution," he says. "People stop me in the grocery store parking lot to talk about it."

Mobley received his Toyota Mirai after taking a test drive last year, and putting his name on a waiting list. He's been driving it since April.

Availability of fueling stations still limits where Mobley is able to take his Mirai, but it's perfect for his 18-mile commute to work every day. There are several hydrogen stations in L.A., and Toyota pays for fuel for the first three years.
