Toyota Mirai Specifications Summary
Hydrogen can be found in nature, in plants, manure, and water. It is the most abundant element in our universe, so why not use it to power our vehicles?
Hydrogen can be extracted from water through a process called electrolysis. Passing an electrical current through water creates a chemical reaction where the result is the separation of water’s two main elements — hydrogen and oxygen.
Hydrogen is stored in carbon fiber, high-impact resistant tanks. When the vehicle is fuelled with hydrogen, and combined with oxygen from outside the vehicle, the chemical reaction that occurs generates electricity. Energy is captured every time you hit the brakes, conserving power and creating even better efficiency.
