Amman, November 2022: Toyota highlighted its groundbreaking eco-friendly mobility solutions during ADIPEC 2022 in Abu Dhabi, with its hydrogen-powered Toyota Mirai on display throughout the four-day event. 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.
ADIPEC is one of the world’s most influential gatherings for the energy industry and brings together key stakeholders with the energy, manufacturing and industrial arenas. The unique platform features a series of themed conferences and forums aimed at accelerating the transition to cleaner energy sources, showcasing revolutionary technologies and exploring actionable strategies for a decarbonized future.
Toyota’s participation comes as part of its drive to lead the way to a decarbonized future for the mobility sector. The company has a longstanding and distinguished history as a pioneer of eco-friendly mobility solutions, successfully launching the world’s first mass-produced Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) - the Prius - in 1997. Toyota continues to pursue a wide range of sustainable mobility solutions - including HEVs, Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs), Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) - to present a full lineup of sustainable and practical mobility solutions that meet the diverse needs of users across the globe.
Kei Fujita, Chief Representative, Middle East and Central Asia Representative Office, Toyota Motor Corporation, commented: “We are pleased to showcase the groundbreaking Toyota Mirai at ADIPEC 2022; a prime platform that explores new paths towards a more sustainable future. Our hydrogen FCEV produces zero emissions with only water as a by-product and is one of the many promising technologies we have developed in our pursuit of carbon neutrality. We remain committed to providing various technology options that are both sustainable and practical as we continue on our journey towards ‘creating mobility for all’ and ‘producing happiness for all’.”
Powered entirely by hydrogen, the Toyota Mirai goes beyond zero emissions with its special air purification system, which captures PM2.5 and eliminates harmful chemical substances to ‘clean the air’ as it drives. The flagship sedan delivers a class-leading cruising range of 650 km and can be refueled in under five minutes, ensuring drivers enjoy the same levels of performance, convenience and driving pleasure associated with a traditionally-powered vehicle.
In 2021, the Toyota Mirai set a new world record for the longest distance traveled by a hydrogen FCEV without refueling. The top-tier vehicle achieved an unprecedented 1,360 km on a single, five-minute complete fill of hydrogen during a roundtrip tour of Southern California to claim the Guinness World Records title and set a new distance milestone for zero-emission vehicles.
