Fuel Cells Works, Friday Fallback Story: Ten Toyota Hydrogen Fuel Cell Miria’s for Maximotor Hydrogen GmbH
  • Fuel cell sedans expand company fleet.
  • More than 650 kilometers range per tank filling.
  • Short refueling times, no harmful emissions.

Cologne –Ten  Toyota Mirai (WLTP fuel consumption: combined hydrogen 0.89-0.79 kg/100 km; combined power consumption 0 kWh/100 km; combined WLTP CO2 emissions 0 g/km) are now expanding the Maximator Hydrogen fleet GmbH, a leading manufacturer of core components for hydrogen technologies.

Maximator Hydrogen is part of the Schmidt Kranz Group, a family-run, medium-sized group of companies with over 130 years of experience in the fields of machine and component construction, high-pressure technology, automation and services. As a partner for the planning, construction and operation of hydrogen infrastructure for road, rail and ship traffic, the companies in the group offer system solutions for the entire value chain: from component development and production to the transport, storage and distribution of green hydrogen. Services such as test facilities and certification of hydrogen storage systems are also part of the portfolio. At the beginning of the year, Germany’s largest production facility for hydrogen filling stations went into operation at Maximator Hydrogen GmbH. Since 2018, the Nordhausen-based company has manufactured almost 50 complete hydrogen filling stations. By 2030, a total of 4,000 Maximator Hydrogen systems should be in operation.

“We are of course very pleased and honored that the Schmidt Kranz Group is backing the Toyota Mirai,” said André Schmidt, President of  Toyota Deutschland GmbH, at the handover ceremony. “With their range suitable for everyday use, the vehicles are ideal for sustainable corporate fleets and thus contribute to the decarbonization of society.”

For Mortimer Glinz, Schmidt Kranz Group Managing Director in the 4th generation, the decision was quickly clear: “Green hydrogen is a key element for the success of the energy transition. Hydrogen cars are the only sustainable alternative for our driving profiles (long-distance). And the Mirai is a handsome milestone in the development of H2-powered vehicles!” As a result, almost 10% of company vehicles are already hydrogen-powered.

In the second model generation, the five-seater sedan offers a range of up to 650 kilometers and the refueling process takes about as long as with conventionally powered vehicles. The Mirai is emission-free and almost silent on the road: the fuel cell converts the stored hydrogen into electrical energy, which in turn drives a 130 kW/182 hp electric motor. The only emission that occurs while driving is water vapor.
