Toyota Mirai debuted in Los AngelesNovember 22, 2019
The novelty can stimulate the company to create its own hydrogen network.
The second-generation Toyota Mirai in 2021 debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The novelty has become larger, more beautiful and more convenient. According to representatives of the brand, the model has better performance, however, according to Mirai chief engineer Yoshikazu Tanaka and senior fuel cell engineer Jackie Birdsall, the new design will really be of great importance. They acknowledge that no matter what progress they make in developing and improving the technology of hydrogen fuel cells, it will not really matter if no one wants a car or can not find a place to refuel it.
As Birdsall explained, the hope is that more people will want such a model. Thus, increased sales and increased demand for the car will spur demand for additional infrastructure, both from the point of view of additional stations, and taking into account the need to amend government regulations so that cars with a hydrogen engine can work in more places.
According to experts, the technology of hydrogen fuel cells can catch on, a new long-term forecast. The widespread adoption of hydrogen stations may require more drastic measures. Toyota Group Vice President and CEO Jack Hollis suggested Toyota could build the infrastructure on its own, just as Tesla did with its Supercharger network.
