Australia--While showcasing its three Hydrogen Fuel Cell Mirais in Australia today, Toyota unveiled Australia's first mobile high-pressure hydrogen refueller in its efforts to make Australians aware of its fuel cell technology.
The Toyota Mirai is the world’s first mass-produced fuel-cell car, and is currently sold in Japan, the US and Europe where numerous areas are supported by refuelling infrastructure.
The refueler is comprised of a Linde high-pressure hydrogen refueller which sits in the back of a Hino 700 series prime mover.
This refueler will allow Toyota to take its three Mirai fuel cell cars anywhere in Australia that a conventional car can be driven, despite the country’s lack of refuelling infrastructure.
The Mirai hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle combines hydrogen and oxygen to make electricity onboard, while emitting nothing but water vapor. It is a zero emission vehicle with an EPA estimated driving range of 312 miles, and refuels in around five minutes.
MY17 MSRP remains $57,500 plus an $865 destination fee. Mirai customers also may qualify for an $8,000 federal tax credit and $5,000 potential California rebate along with access to the coveted California HOV carpool lane.
