The ocean demands respect. Ask Aitor Francesena and he will tell you how falling from a wave changed his life forever. He was left blind and with little hope of ever surfing again. But when you love it, you just can’t leave it.
From the outside, the Mirai could be any regular four-door sedan. It’s every bit as practical, safe and easy to drive as a conventional car, it can be refilled in a matter of minutes and it’ll travel up to 500km on a full tank. The difference is, the Mirai’s tank is filled with hydrogen, not gasoline.
At the heart of the Mirai is an advanced fuel cell which converts hydrogen gas stored in a pressurised tank into electricity. Hydrogen fuel cell cars are similar to next-generation electric vehicles, except for one unique characteristic: their only tailpipe emission is water. No harmful carbon dioxide emissions, nitrogen oxides or particulate matter. And no recharging, just simply refill as you would in any conventional car.
Drop by drop, the Mirai is making the impossible, possible. Across the world, businesses, taxi and ride-sharing services, and even police forces looking to reduce the environmental impact of their fleets have embraced the benefits of the revolutionary, zero-emission Mirai.
RESHAPING OUR SOCIETY TOWARDS AN EMISSION-FREE SOCIETY
Our world needs a new power source, a sustainable system that replaces fossil fuels. The answer? Hydrogen. Made with renewable energy, such as the sun and wind, hydrogen is completely carbon-free, and unlike other energy sources, it’s easy to store and transport in large amounts. But the best news of all: its only by-product is water.
It won’t happen overnight, but hydrogen is changing the face of transport – and is poised to do even more. In fact, hydrogen could account for almost one-fifth of total energy consumed by 2050. From powering vehicles and manufacturing plants to heating homes and businesses, we're working tirelessly to achieve our vision of a hydrogen-based, emission-free society.
After all, this is our impossible. And we are determined to make it happen, drop by drop.
