As the environment continues to deteriorate, more and more new energy sources are used. Hydrogen fuel cell refers to a device that generates electricity through a chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen (a “hydrogen internal combustion engine” driven solely by burning hydrogen has also appeared, such as BMW’s Hydrogen 7 Series).
The driving force of the hydrogen fuel cell vehicle comes from the electric motor on the vehicle, just like a pure electric vehicle, so the hydrogen fuel cell vehicle can be understood as an “electric vehicle with its own hydrogen fuel generator.”
According to foreign media reports, the world may not be ready to use fuel cell-powered cars, but Toyota is ready to launch the second-generation Mirai sedan to help change the public’s collective perception of this type of car.
On Sunday, the automaker revealed via Twitter that the next Mirai will be launched in the United States in December this year.
It is reported that the new Mirai will also have a larger hydrogen fuel cell, so drivers can expect to get a longer cruising range than current cars. Toyota believes that it can increase the cruising range by 30%, so a box of hydrogen can run 400 miles.
