Toyota details the 2016 Mirai FCV with videos

Toyota recently dumped some media and details surrounding the new 2016 Mirai FCV, which sets to up the ante in the push for making hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles more common.

The Japanese automobile giant has been known to be working on fuel-cell vehicles for quite some time as their concept is real simple–using a complex process that involves a fuel-cell, which converts the chemical energy stored within hydrogen to electricity using oxygen, a fuel-cell vehicle is an EV powered by hydrogen. And what happens when you add oxygen to hydrogen? You get water, and that’s what’s emitted out of the tailpipe of a fuel-cell vehicle in vapor form.

The 2016 Mirai is capable of going from 0-60 in just nine seconds as the fuel cell and electric motor generates around 150hp and the Mirai can travel up to 300 miles on one tank of hydrogen.

Check out the videos after the jump.
