Toyota Kirloskar Motor on Wednesday launched India’s first all-hydrogen electric vehicle Mirai as part of its pilot project with the International Center for Automotive Technology (ICAT). The Toyota Mirai FCEV is one of the first hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles in the world and it runs on pure hydrogen generated electricity.
Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari has launched the pilot project for the Mirai hydrogen based advanced fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV). Mr. Gadkari also recently said that he would start using the Toyota Mirai himself, while Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) will be supplying Hydrogen for the vehicle.
Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt Ltd and International Center for Automotive Technology (ICAT) are conducting a Pilot project to study and evaluate the world’s most advanced Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) Toyota Mirai which runs on hydrogen, on Indian roads and climatic conditions.
This is a first of its kind project in India which aims to create a Green Hydrogen based ecosystem in the country by creating awareness about the unique utility of Green Hydrogen and FCEV technology.
Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV), powered by Hydrogen is one of the best Zero Emission solutions. It is completely environment friendly with no tailpipe emissions other than water.
