Over a decade ago, the pioneering Toyota Prius enabled Green Tomato Cars to start our journey. Thanks to their innovative flexible Hybrid architecture, we can now pursue our revolutionary development through the introduction of the new Toyota Mirai; the hydrogen-powered car that emits nothing but water, guaranteed to leave an impression on you, on every journey.
The Mirai signals the start of a new age of sustainable transport!
Rather than petrol, the Mirai runs on electricity created on demand using hydrogen pumped into the car, stored in carbon-fibre fuel tanks. From there, the hydrogen travels to the fuel cell where it meets air drawn into the car by the front intake grilles. The hydrogen and the oxygen react, creating electricity, which is sent to the motor to power the car. And the only by-product of creating electricity with hydrogen and oxygen? Just water. H2O.
