While Honda has dominated much of the Hybrid-Electric vehicle market, thanks to its hot selling Prius, Toyota has decided to up the ante and hence revealed the 2016 Toyota Mirai FCV fuel cell vehicle recently. While few details were revealed earlier, Toyota has launched a series of videos to give an insight on the vehicle.
The video released shows how the vehicle combines oxygen from the air and hydrogen from the fuel cell to create electricity. The electricity produced powers the motors, which in return moves the car. Infact, one of the statement by Toyota said that the water produced in the exhaust is safe for drinking, though, it shouldn't be consumed.
The video also reveals the refueling time, which is now lowered to three minutes than the earlier speculated five minutes. The Mirai can travel up to 500 km on a single fill up and comes with high tech interiors which has a capacitive touch climate control system and two 4.2-inch display.
Though, not much of the technical specifications are revealed, the videos confirm that the Mirai can accelerate from 0-100 kmph in 9 seconds. Videos also reveal that the fuel cell generates 155 ps of power and says the model can be started at temperatures as low as -22° C (-7.6° F).
