Toyota has taken another step towards a hydrogen-powered future with the arrival of the first Mirai fuel cell vehicles at its import centre at Portbury, near Bristol.
The cars, landed on Saturday, are part of the first consignment to reach Europe, ahead of Mirai’s official launch in September.
As part of Toyota’s global introduction of the world’s first mass-produced fuel cell saloon, the four-door Mirai is being offered in selected European markets – the UK, Germany and Denmark – where a hydrogen fuel supply and retail infrastructure is being developed. The limited number available in Britain this year have already been snapped up, principally by business and corporate customers keen to be among the first to explore the potential of Toyota’s advanced fuel cell technology and its promise of zero harmful tailpipe emissions.
