Toyota Mirai manufacturing

In November last year, we gave you a sneak peek into the future of motoring according to Toyota by showing you the Mirai hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle. A few weeks later, we gave you a deeper insight into what this amazing piece of automotive technology is all about.

The Toyota Mirai is essentially a mass-produced hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle that you can buy by simply walking into your friendly Toyota showroom--if you live in Japan, California or Europe, that is.

As a highly sophisticated vehicle, the Mirai is naturally put together with utmost attention to detail and care. And this is exactly what Toyota is doing: It assembles the "future of motoring" at its Motomachi plant in Japan.  This vehicle assembly plant has churned out some of the most notable models in the Toyota lineup, including the Corona, the Cresta, the Publica, the Supra, the RAV4 and even the Lexus LFA.

The LFA is what sets the stage for the future at Toyota. Thanks to the 500 units of this ultra-desirable supercar put together by hand by some of the most skilled craftspeople, it is fitting that the former "LFA Works" plant be put to good use and become the home of the new Mirai. This means the same care and craftsmanship can be expected in every Mirai that rolls off the Motomachi assembly line. And as we reported in January, Toyota has increased output due to the increased demand.

For the first time, Toyota shows the world a series of behind-the-scenes videos of how its "future" is being made. Get to see how this small yet efficient automotive plant puts together the Toyota Mirai. While words can describe how it's done, images still paint more than a thousand words.

So watch and enjoy!
