Experience the Toyota Mirai, an innovative and compelling vehicle that is fuelled by the most abundant element in the universe – Hydrogen. The Toyota Mirai is the first mass-production hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric vehicle, delivering quiet, responsive, and long distance driving with zero CO2 emissions.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
With the Toyota Mirai, you fuel up with hydrogen in the same way you would a gas-powered vehicle. The hydrogen is stored in carbon fibre, high-impact resistant tanks. When the vehicle is fueled with hydrogen, and combined with oxygen from outside the vehicle, the chemical reaction that occurs generates electricity. What’s more, energy is captured every time you hit the brakes, conserving power and creating even better efficiency.
As always, Toyota’s vision for the future of mobility puts safety first and foremost. Advanced safety innovations, specially designed for hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles, have been included into the design of the Toyota Mirai. You never have to fear a leak with the Mirai as the multi-patented, carbon-fibre-wrapped, polymer-lined hydrogen tanks, are built in a three-layer structure and absorb five times the crash energy of steel. Adding to this robust durability is the fact that in a high-speed collision, sensors stop the flow of hydrogen, by automatically shutting off the tank’s hydrogen output valve.
