So if you do consider yourself a leader, and you want to discover uncharted territories, all the while only emitting water vapor, become one of the first drivers of the Mirai.

We've broken down the Mirai for all you Scranton Toyota fans with these fun facts.

Fill Up with Hydrogen

2016 Toyota Mirai in Scranton The first thing you need to know is that it all starts with hydrogen. This alternative to fossil fuel is very similar to your old fueling methods; just now you're pumping hydrogen into your vehicle. Change can be scary so don't fret, there's a fuel pump and a nozzle, just like you're used to at gas stations.

Something's in the Air

The Mirai is a breath of fresh air, literally. The car's front grill intakes the outside air to the fuel cell stack. Then the hydrogen that you filled your car with travels to the fuel cell stack as well. Remember your science classes from high school? What's occurring now is a chemical reaction between the oxygen from the air and the hydrogen. This reaction creates electricity that in turn powers the vehicle.

Put Your Foot Down Without Leaving a Mark

With the simple task of putting your foot down on the accelerator, the energy created in the fuel cell stack gets sent to the motor, and you're changing automobile history. While you leave your mark, the only thing the car leaves behind is water as a by-product of the chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen. Your tailpipe that used to emit dangerous fossil fuel now just deposits water as you go.

The science lesson from Toyota is over, Scranton: here are some of the features that come in the 2016 Toyota Mirai.
