The Mirai combines all the experience of the veteran Japanese firm, with cars that are driven by fuel cells. So far, hydrogen has been considered a very difficult drive to implement for cars intended for everyday use. With the Mirai, Toyota has managed to merge the established electric drive technology with an addition: a cell that converts nitrogen into electric energy.

When demonstrating this innovation, Toyota gave other car producers free use of all the patents they employed in its design. The Mirai will be initially sold around Europe, where the nitrogen supply infrastructure has been established. The first cars will be available at the end of the year in London, Copenhagen, Hamburg and Munich.
