Toyota Mirai At New York Auto Show – East Coast Hydrogen Fueling Stations Coming Soon
Toyota presents at the 2015 New York Auto Show its hydrogen fuel cell car the Mirai.
The car of the future this time is in white color and was connected to the model of a home, supplying power through its CHAdeMO inlet in the trunk (charging capability of tiny battery pack isn’t available).
Range of Mirai at one fill is stated at 300 miles, while an optional power take off (PTO) can deliver up to 9 kW of power (60 kWh total), enough for emergency situations.
There’s a model of a hydrogen station on display too and our man at the show, Tom Moloughney, indicates that a new infrastructure project with 12 hydrogen refueling stations from New York to Boston is coming soon.
Many sites for stations have already been identified and are awaiting groundbreaking, which for sure would help the Mirai rollout in the area.
