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.

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.

Toyota surpasses 3,000 Mirai hydrogen fuel cell vehicle sales in California
http://www.greencarcongress.com/2018/01/20180123-mirai.html

. . . Thirty-one retail hydrogen stations are now open for business in California, with an additional twelve stations projected to open in California in 2018.

Toyota continues to partner with FirstElement Fuels and Shell to support the creation of a broad network of hydrogen infrastructure in California. Toyota is also collaborating with Air Liquide, a producer of industrial gases, to set up a network of 12 hydrogen fueling stations stretching from New York to Boston, with the first station expected to launch in Boston later this year.

In addition, Toyota is building a new Tri-Gen facility at the Port of Long Beach that will use bio-waste sourced from California’s agricultural industry to generate water, electricity and hydrogen. The hydrogen will fuel all Toyota fuel cell vehicles moving through the Port, including new deliveries of the Mirai sedan and Toyota’s Heavy Duty hydrogen fuel cell class 8 truck, known as Project Portal. . . .

The last paragraph has its own topic.
