new Delhi. Toyota Kirloskar, the company that sells Fortuner in India, on Wednesday launched India’s first all-hydrogen electric car, the Mirai. The Toyota Mirai FCEV is one of the world’s first hydrogen fuel cell electric cars and runs on electricity made from pure hydrogen.
The Toyota Mirai is also considered a zero-emission vehicle as the car emits only water from the tailpipe. Toyota has launched it as part of a pilot project in India with the International Center for Automotive Technology (ICAT).

Car will go through testing
This pilot project has been started by the Government of India to reduce the demand for petrol and diesel in the country and to prevent pollution. For this, apart from electric vehicles, the government is also pushing hydrogen fuel cells as a solution for petrol and diesel. In this pilot project, Mirai will be tested by driving on Indian roads and climatic conditions.

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) said that this is the first project of its kind in India, aimed at spreading awareness about hydrogen technology.
this is the car engine
The Toyota Mirai FCEV sedan uses a high pressure hydrogen fuel tank and an electric motor. Its engine separates water and oxygen from hydrogen and generates energy from it. This car expels water from its tailpipe i.e. silencer instead of gases like internal combustion engines.
