Toyota is highlighting one of its pioneering green mobility solutions this week at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference ( ADIPEC 2022 ); And that is by displaying the advanced electric vehicle, the Toyota Mirai which is powered by hydrogen fuel cells (FCEV); Throughout the four-day event.
This superior vehicle has innovative technologies that enable it to provide an all-electric driving experience with the highest efficiency in its class, free of carbon emissions, and underscores Toyota’s commitment to achieving carbon neutrality and providing sustainable mobility for all.
ADIPEC is one of the most influential global events in the energy sector, bringing together stakeholders in energy, manufacturing, and industry. It includes a series of themed conferences and forums aimed at accelerating the transition to clean energy sources, showcasing groundbreaking technologies, and exploring actionable strategies for a carbon-neutral future.
Toyota’s participation in ADIPEC 2022 comes as part of its efforts to lead efforts toward a carbon-neutral future in the mobility sector. The company has a long and distinguished history as a pioneer in the development of environmentally friendly vehicles. It succeeded in launching the Toyota Prius in 1997, the world’s first mass-produced HEV hybrid electric vehicle.
Toyota continues to take a holistic, multi-lane approach focused on developing sustainable and practical mobility solutions including HEVs, External Charge Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs), Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), and Cell Electric Vehicles. hydrogen fuels (FCEVs), all as part of its strategy to respond flexibly to the diverse needs of users for diverse mobility solutions around the world.
“We are pleased to display the innovative Toyota Mirai electric vehicle at ADIPEC 2022, which is an important platform to explore new paths towards a more sustainable future,” said Kei Fujita, Chief Representative of the Toyota Motor Corporation Representative Office in the Middle East and Central Asia. This electric vehicle relies on hydrogen fuel cells (FCEV) and does not emit any carbon emissions, as water is the only material that comes out of the exhaust. Hydrogen fuel cells are one of the promising technologies that we are developing as part of our efforts to achieve carbon neutrality. At Toyota, we remain committed to providing many advanced, sustainable, and practical technologies as we continue our journey towards creating mobility solutions for all and contributing to the happiness of all.”
Fujita added: “I would like to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to the organizers of this very important event, whose objectives closely align with Toyota’s pursuit of sustainability. I would also like to thank our customers around the world for their constant support, which constantly inspires us to develop the best vehicles ever.”
The Toyota Mirai is environmentally friendly as it provides a 100% electric driving experience with zero carbon emissions and is powered entirely by hydrogen only; It even goes beyond that with a special air filtration system; Which captures the smallest PM2.5 particles and removes harmful chemicals, helping to purify more air as you drive.
The Toyota Mirai also has an unparalleled driving range in its class of 650 km and can be refueled with hydrogen in less than five minutes, ensuring drivers enjoy the same levels of performance, comfort, and driving pleasure associated with conventional-powered vehicles.
In 2021, the Toyota Mirai entered the Guinness Book of World Records in the category of eco-friendly electric vehicles based on hydrogen fuel cells, which emit no carbon emissions; After setting a new record for the longest trip by a hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) on a single fill, the class-leading vehicle traveled an unprecedented 1,360 km across Southern California on a single hydrogen fuel in just five minutes.
Fuel cell technology developed by Toyota in the early 1990s has become so diverse that it has found a wide range of applications not only in vehicles but also in trucks, buses, boats, and stationary generators.
The company is also currently conducting a number of studies and research to use this technology in trains, in addition to the lunar exploration spacecraft called “Lunar Cruiser” as part of the joint project with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) announced in 2019.
The Toyota Mirai is on display at the Japan Pavilion during the Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC 2022), which is being held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center from October 31 to November 3.
