Toyota is showcasing its groundbreaking, environmentally-friendly technology at one of the world’s largest events, with the new-generation Toyota Mirai making its UAE debut as the official car of the Japan Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai. Powered by hydrogen, the cutting-edge Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) offers a 100% electric driving experience, with best-in-class efficiency and zero emissions, underlining Toyota’s commitment to achieving carbon neutrality and creating sustainable mobility for all.
Chosen as a leading example of craftsmanship and innovation, the state-of-the-art Toyota Mirai arrived at the Japan Pavilion during a special delivery ceremony. The new-generation vehicle will provide an exceptional mobility solution for staff at the Japan Pavilion throughout the eagerly anticipated event, which has been attracting thousands of visitors since opening its doors to welcome the world at the beginning of October.
“It is a great honor for the Toyota Mirai to be selected as the official car of the Japan Pavilion at this landmark global gathering. The Expo 2020 theme of ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’ centers around sustainability, mobility and opportunity – all of which are aligned with Toyota’s vision for a better world. This also comes in line with the UAE’s ‘Net Zero by 2050’ strategic initiative, which aims to create positive environmental impact,” said Kei Fujita, Chief Representative, Middle East and Central Asia Representative Office, Toyota Motor Corporation. “Here in the region, there has been keen interest in the potential of hydrogen as a clean energy source, which makes the Mirai’s participation especially relevant. This is one of the many diverse technologies we have been developing as part of our journey to achieve a carbon-neutral society with greater mobility for all.”
Toyota’s flagship sedan, the Mirai, is a rear-wheel-drive sports-luxury FCEV that offers a combination of striking design, cutting-edge technology and premium driving performance. The Mirai’s advanced technology enables the vehicle to produce its own electricity using an onboard fuel cell. First developed by Toyota in 1992, FCEV technology converts hydrogen and oxygen into electricity to power an electric motor, producing zero emissions with only water as a by-product. The new-generation Mirai offers a class-leading cruising range of 650 km and can be refueled in just 3 to 5 minutes. Its electric motor is capable of generating 134 kW of torque, creating responsive acceleration that can carry the vehicle from 40 to 70 km/h in just 2.8 seconds.
