Toyota’s hydrogen-powered car will do 400 miles on a single tank

The Toyota Mirai will manage over 400 miles on a single tank. It’s the first hydrogen-powered car you can own and is set for launch later this year in Japan, North America and Europe. The only problem is that hydrogen refueling stations aren’t exactly littering the countryside. This second-gen version claims up to 30% more range thanks to a redesigned fuel cell system and new three-tank layout…

Toyota first introduced its hydrogen-powered Mirai sedan back in 2014 and has since sold 10,000 models. A fuel cell mixes hydrogen with the oxygen in the air to generate electricity that can power a motor. The main challenge is a lack of infrastructure. According to the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA), there are currently just 125 hydrogen stations in the EU.
