TOYOTA MIRAI FCEV
Mirai means “Future” in Japanese. The Toyota Mirai includes an optional “Power Take-off” which is a DC adapter in the boot that allows the owner to draw power off of the fuel cell powering his home in emergency situations. The Mirai is equipped with V2G (Vehicle to Grid) and can provide 60kWh on a full charge, which is about two days of power at the US average household energy consumption of 30kWH.
The solid-polymer electrolyte fuel cell itself was developed in-house by Toyota and is comprised of 370 cells, each weighing 102 grams and measuring 1.34 mm in thickness. The fuel cell does not need a humidifier, thanks to internal water circulation.
The Mirai can hold a maximum of 5.0 kilograms of compressed hydrogen in two 10,000-psi carbon-fiber-reinforced high-pressure tanks, positioned under and behind the rear seats.
Output density is 3.1 kW per liter or 2.0 kW per kilogram, which Toyota claims is among the world’s best. The Mirai is sold with 3 years of fuel free.
