Trying to create a car that is kinder on our natural resources scientist at Toyota tried to use an element that is found all around us, hydrogen. Hydrogen has already been used to fuel generators, forklifts, submarines, and spacecrafts so why not the car industry! Hydrogen from the Mirai fuel tank mixes with oxygen brought in through the front grille to create electricity to power the Mirai. And better yet all it leaves behind is water! So with one full tank the Mirai can go 312 EPA-rated miles-per-tank and leaves behind ZERO emissions!! One huge step for Toyota and a win for our environment.
