Toyota Hydrogen Powered Car Available Next Year

Post  Tess on Tue Nov 18, 2014 3:37 pm

The Toyota Mirai is a four-door, mid-size sedan with performance that fully competes with traditional internal combustion engines – but it uses no gasoline and emits nothing but water vapor. The groundbreaking fuel cell electric vehicle is powered by hydrogen, re-fuels in about five minutes, and travels up to 300 miles on a full tank.

Mirai will be available to customers in California beginning in fall 2015, with additional markets tracking the expansion of a convenient hydrogen refueling infrastructure. Powered by an industry-leading fuel cell electric drivetrain and supported by an exceptional 360-degree ownership experience, Mirai marks a turning point for consumer expectations for a zero-emission vehicle.

I want one.
the problem with this is that they have no infrastructure in place to refuel them.
I remember when LPG first arrived finding somewhere to fuel up was quite a task. However it is certainly a step in the right direction.

THe point I was making was that this supposed green and environmentally good car will be resource intensive in other ways.




It will take electricity to produce the hydrogen.
