Zero Emissions. Unlimited Potential
Imagine a vehicle so clean that it emits only water from its tailpipe. That’s the power and potential of Toyota’s revolutionary hydrogen fuel cell electric (FCEV) technology. Brought to life in the Toyota Mirai.
Power. Pure and Simple
Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. And that’s just the start of what makes it such an ideal power source.
When hydrogen is made using renewable energy, it is completely carbon-free. When used to power an FCEV, like Mirai, the only tailpipe emission is water vapour.
Electricity is produced onboard, and supplied to the electric motor as needed. Excess energy is stored in a compact battery pack.
There’s no need to change your driving habits. Where refueling infrastructure exists, simply fill the hydrogen fuel tank and you are ready to enjoy zero emissions driving at its finest.
OUR TANKS ARE DESIGNED NOT TO LEAK
Our multi-patented, carbon-fiber-wrapped, polymer-lined hydrogen tanks, are built in a three-layer structure and absorb five times the crash energy of steel.
ANY LEAKED HYDROGEN IS QUICKLY DISPERSED
All hydrogen-related parts are located outside the cabin and designed to help ensure leaked hydrogen doesn’t build up.
IN A HIGH SPEED COLLISION, SENSORS STOP THE FLOW OF HYDROGEN
To prevent hydrogen from traveling to potentially damaged systems outside of the tank, the system automatically shuts the tank’s hydrogen output valve.
HYDROGEN ESCAPES SAFELY INTO THE ATMOSPHERE
Since hydrogen gas is lighter than air, it rapidly disperses, reducing the potential for damage in the event of an ignition.
