Per IEVS, Toyota sold/leased 269 Mirais in the U.S. in December, for a total of 1,835 for the year. This total doesn't agree with last month's, as at that time IEVS claimed 1,542 YTD, + 269 = 1,811. Perhaps they updated the old number.

Via GCC:
Toyota Mirai Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle to go on sale this year in Canada starting in Québec
http://www.greencarcongress.com/2018/01/20180118-mirai.html

. . . As Toyota kicked off its participation in the Montréal International Auto Show, the company confirmed it would launch starting with select fleets in Québec.

Hydro Québec is the world’s fourth-largest producer of clean hydro-electricity; the hydrogen used to drive Mirai will be produced from clean sources too. Toyota Canada has been working closely with partners in Québec over the past year—in particular, the Ministries of Energy, Environment, and Transportation—to ensure the introduction of an appropriate fueling infrastructure in the province. . . .

Per a comment, this apparently starts with 50 cars used in commercial/industrial fleets around Quebec City for a cold weather test, then expanding to the public and the rest of the Province later.
