Toyota’s Mirai is for hydrogen future

Toyota’s hydrogen driven Mirai is for a cleaner future, the company says. Mirai is Japanese for “the future,” and Toyota has been using this Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) in its campaign for hydrogen-run cars. Already out in Japan and California, USA, Mirai produces no emissions.
Looks wise, the Mirai is a Camry take-off. The cabin is futuristic; It has three display screens. The interior design looks like an updated Prius. The seats are comfortable, but it only carries four passengers—to keep the weight of a fifth passenger from reducing its range.
The Mirai is powered by a 114-kilowatt (153-horsepower) fuel cell under the front seats, which sends power to an electric motor that drives its front wheels. Some energy can also be supplied by the 1.6-kwh lithium-ion battery pack, which essentially buffers the power demand to keep the fuel cell operating at a more steady output level.
Two hydrogen fuel tanks are mounted crosswise between the rear wheels under the load deck and under the rear seat, containing up to 5 kg of hydrogen compressed to 10,000 psi. The Mirai can travel up to 312 miles on a full tank of hydrogen.
