The number of fuel cell vehicles available to consumers and on the road continues to grow as exhibited by sales and lease volumes. It must be noted that fuel cell vehicle sales (including leases) are currently only offered in select areas that have hydrogen refueling infrastructure—mainly in California. For this reason, fuel cell vehicle sales do not directly reflect consumer demand, and sales volumes should not be compared to sales volumes of mainstream vehicles that are sold in all 50 states. Of the three publicly available fuel cell models, the Toyota Mirai has sold 2,158 units.
