Toyota has introduced the Toyota Mirai Hydrogen, India’s first hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle.
Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of Road Transport, has launched the Mirai Hydrogen Fuel Cell Advanced Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) pilot project.
The hydrogen is converted into electricity, which powers the sedan, with the only residue being the water that exits the Mirai’s tailpipe.
Toyota Mirai Hydrogen Fuel Cell is the country’s first such project aimed at raising awareness of hydrogen, FCEV technology, and spreading its benefits to support India’s hydrogen-based society, according to a previous press release from the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways.
Mirai is designed to travel approximately 482 kilometers on a full tank of hydrogen (approximately 7 kg in weight) using only a 9 kWh 34-cell battery,
According to the statement, Toyota Mirai Hydrogen offers enormous opportunities to decarbonize a variety of sectors, including road transportation, and is gaining unprecedented global momentum.
According to an official statement from the Ministry of Road Transport, India is committed to cleaner energy and a low-carbon pathway to accelerate economic growth.
