Even though fuel-cell vehicles aren’t nearly as popular as other “green” vehicles, Toyota has announced that it has sold over 3,000 Mirai fuel-cell sedans in California. With over 3,000 Mirai fuel-cell vehicles on the road, the Mirai now accounts for more than 80% of all hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in the United States.
“Toyota remains at the forefront of developing and deploying hydrogen fuel cell technology, and we believe strongly in its potential to help realize a more sustainable and zero-emissions society,” said Bob Carter, Executive Vice President, Toyota Motor North America, Inc. “From our success in launching the Mirai to our work in building the world’s first megawatt-scale carbonate fuel cell power generation plant, Toyota is proud to bring to market new uses for this versatile technology.”
To help further the adoption of fuel-cell vehicles, Toyota remains committed to supporting the development of a hydrogen refueling network. Thirty-one hydrogen stations are now open in California, with an additional twelve stations projected to open in California in 2018. Toyota has also teamed up with Air Liquide, to set up a network of 12 hydrogen fueling stations between New York and Boston, with the first station expected to launch in Boston later this year.
