“Toyota’s vision of a hydrogen society is not just about building a great car, but ensuring accessible, reliable and convenient refueling for our customers,” Jim Lentz, president of Toyota Motor North America, said in a statement. “I am happy to announce that this vision will expand beyond the borders of California and give customers the opportunity to join the fuel cell movement.”
The Mirai’s low center of gravity gives it dynamic handling while its fuel-cell provides ample energy to power the car, the video transcript quoted Toyoda as saying.
“Our fuel cell vehicle runs on hydrogen that can be made from virtually anything, even garbage,” he said. “It has a fuel cell that creates enough electricity to power a house for about a week. This is a car that lets you have it all with no compromises.”
