With Mirai Testing, Toyota Takes On Fostering A ‘Hydrogen-Society’ For The Next-Generation


11/18/2016


China becomes the testing ground for Toyota’s fuel cell vehicles.



On Friday, the 18th of November 2016, Hiroji Onishi, the Head of Toyota Motor Corp., present at the “Guangzhou auto show”, revealed that the company is “testing” the Mirai, a “fuel-cell vehicle” in China.
 
The options of vehicle powered “fuel cell” seems to be the “most sensible next-generation” alternative, while Toyota has been prompting for the change. However, the absence of “hydrogen fuelling stations” turns out to be a major obstacle for the mass to start using fuel cell vehicles.
 
Mirai is a Japanese word that is equivalent to “future”, whereby the four-person Sedan thus bearing the same name made its first introduction in the year if 2014. Mirai possesses a range of three hundred miles, while for Toyota, it is the company’s “first mass-market fuel cell car”.
 
China continues to move towards “electric technology” in an attempt to be self-sufficient in the competitive global race, while Japan invests big amounts in “fuel-cell technology”. The aim of the latter is to foster a “hydrogen society” to promote “zero-emission fuel”.
