Revolutionising the way we drive
Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) could revolutionise the way we drive. Using hydrogen as their power source, they’re able to provide comparable range to current internal combustion engines and emit nothing but water from the exhaust pipe. This is part of Toyota’s electrification journey into our carbon neutral future.
Toyota pioneered this FCEV technology, launching the world's first production-viable hydrogen car in 2014. The second-generation Mirai will bring this incredible new technology to new heights.
A whole new power source
Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) power an electric motor using the energy produced by hydrogen and oxygen chemically reacting to each other. Unlike an internal combustion engine, there is no burning or compression, and the only emission caused by this reaction is water.
A safe alternative to internal combustion engines
While hydrogen is a flammable gas, we've used cutting-edge technology and engineering to make fuel cell electric vehicles as safe as conventional internal combustion engines. For example, our hydrogen tanks are so strong they can only be pierced by large calibre bullets fired at close range, and even then, the hydrogen simply dissipates.
This, combined with all our other safety features, means the ANCAP rating for our second-generation Mirai FCEV is the full 5-stars possible.
Amazing power and range
Fuel cell electric vehicles combine the responsiveness and instant torque of an electric motor with the range and power of a conventional internal combustion engine. For instance, in our Toyota Mirai, you can get up to 100km/h in just 9 seconds, and the vehicle has a range of over 640km* with a full tank of hydrogen.
*Fuel Consumption figures are tested under controlled conditions and are provided for comparison purposes, actual results will vary according to vehicle usage and operating conditions.
A breakthrough in renewable energy
Hydrogen is one of the most abundant elements in our universe - it makes up 70% of all matter. It's clean, producing only water when powering a FCEV, and if made using renewable energy, completely carbon-free.
Hydrogen is being seen as our world's future power source, and Toyota is at the forefront of this. We're funding Woven City, a community at the base of Mount Fuji that will be fully and solely powered by hydrogen.

The second-generation of the world’s first hydrogen fuel cell production car, the Mirai, is blazing a path into a new age of emission-free* power.
Using the latest in hydrogen fuel cell technology, the Mirai generates clean energy safely, and emits nothing but water. It has the range of a conventional internal combustion vehicle without producing the side effects created by using a combustion engine.
