Toyota just revealed the new Mirai hydrogen fuel-cell car sedan this week ahead of the 2014 Los Angeles auto show, and now the automaker is divulging a bit more about what the water-emitting sedan will cost when it starts arriving in showrooms next fall.

Customers can expect to lease the Mirai for $499 a month for 36 months with $3649 due at signing. For those interested in purchasing the Mirai, that will cost $57,500. However, Toyota says that after all the combined state and federal incentives of $13,000 that will be available, the purchase price could potentially drop down under $45,000. That money will not only get customers the Mirai, but also a comprehensive "360-degree Ownership Experience" that offers services such as 24/7 concierge and roadside assistance, an eight-year or 100,000-mile warranty on fuel cell components, and free hydrogen fuel for up to three years. 2016 Toyota Mirai© Provided by MotorTrend 2016 Toyota Mirai

The Japanese automaker says the Mirai will work much like a battery electric car, except that it'll have a fuel cell stack instead of a battery pack. The 3.1 kW/L fuel cell stack is located underneath the front driver and passenger seats, and puts out a maximum output of 153 hp, which helps get it from 0-60 mph in 9.0 seconds. The Mirai can reportedly be refueled in about five minutes, and travel up to 300 miles on a full tank. Another notable feature available for the Mirai is an optional power take off device, which will allow the sedan to serve as a mobile generator in case of an emergency. As for safety, the Mirai will come standard with features such as pre-collision, blind spot monitor, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. 2016 Toyota Mirai© Provided by MotorTrend 2016 Toyota Mirai

Even though it features a completely different technology from the rest of the lineup, it fits right in with the rest of the family. From the front, it takes on styling cues similar to those found on the 2015 Camry, with an upside-down trapezoidal grille and black air inlets flanking it. The folds in the sheetmetal that house LED running lights are also familiar styling cues transferred over from the midsize sedan. As for the slim headlights, they resemble the ones found on the Toyota Corolla Furia concept.

Look for the Toyota Mirai to first start appearing in California showrooms next fall.
