Mirai is Toytota’s answer to the hiking fuel price and its solution to the emission caused by fossil fuel vehicles. The Japanese carmaker is considering to bring in India the hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, the Mirai. Toyota has not revealed the details of the launching yet. If launched it could be the first flagship FCV in India. The GST (Goods and Service Tax) council has recently cut down the tax on fuel cell vehicle from 28% to 12%, making the situation favourable for the hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
Mirai promises zero emission as the only emission is water, and it will take only 5 minutes to refuel. When you pump the hydrogen the gas travels to carbon fibre reinforced fuel tank where it is stored. It travels from the tanks to the fuel cell stack; it goes through a chemical reaction with oxygen in the air, creating electricity to power the vehicle. When you put your foot on the accelerator, electricity from the fuel cell stack is sent to the motor. It could deliver 151hp of power. Then water is emitted through the tailpipe.
The aerodynamic exterior with stylish and luxurious interior Mirai becomes an innovative car. No other specifications are revealed by the company.
