How it Works

IT ALL STARTS
WITH HYDROGEN

When you pump hydrogen into the vehicle, the gas travels to a carbon-fiber reinforced fuel tanks where it's stored.

THEN COMES AIR

The FCV’s front intake grills deliver the outside air to the fuel cell stack.

WHICH MAKES ELECTRICITY

Hydrogen travels from the tanks to the fuel cell stack. There, it goes through a chemical reaction involving the oxygen in the air, creating electricity to power the vehicle.

MOVING YOU FORWARD

When you put your foot on the gas pedal, electricity from the fuel cell stack is sent to the motor.

LEAVING BEHIND
NOTHING BUT WATER

In the end, the only by-product of creating electricity with hydrogen and oxygen in our fuel cell stack is water, which leaves through the tailpipe.

Hydrogen Safety

Hydrogen Safety

Safety Down to a Science

Safety was a primary objective when engineering the Mirai. Our proprietary safety system is based on four fundamental principles:

  • 1: Our tanks are designed not to leak.

    Every material selected is used to contain hydrogen safely.

  • 2: In a high-speed collision, sensors stop the flow of hydrogen

    To prevent hydrogen from traveling to potentially damaged systems outside of the tank, the system automatically shuts the tank’s hydrogen output valve.

  • 3: Any leaked hydrogen
    is
    quickly dispersed.

    All hydrogen-related parts are located outside the cabin and designed to help ensure leaked hydrogen doesn’t build up.

  • 4: Hydrogen escapes safely

    into the atmosphere.

    Since the gas is lighter than air, it rapidly disperses, reducing the time window to cause damage in the event of an ignition.

Tank Safety

Tank Safety

Strength in layers

A vehicle as groundbreaking and revolutionary as the hydrogen-fueled Toyota Mirai demands equaly groundbreaking and revolutionary safety technology. Case in point, our multi-patented, carbon-fiber-wrapped, polymer-lined tanks are built in a three-layer structure and absorb five times the crash energy of steel.

Inner: polymer-lined layer to hold the hydrogen
Middle: structural layer of carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer to provide strength
Outer: glass-fiber-reinforced polymer layer to help protect from surface abrasions

See how our hydrogen tanks undergo extreme safety testing.

Safety Technology

Safety Technology

Driven by safety

Over the years, Mirai prototypes have undergone millions of miles of road and track evaluation, rigorous in-house crash testing and more than 10,000 miles of extreme climate testing, helping ensure the same world-class safety you’ll find in any Toyota vehicle.

System Components

Anatomy of a Fuel Cell Vehicle

No internal combustion. No carbon emissions. Explore the inner workings of FCV technology.

  • The Power Control Unit

    The Power control unit

    The Power control unit

    The PCU decides when to use stored energy from the battery or to draw energy directly from the fuel cell stack. This is part of what makes the Mirai so energy efficient, and is based on the Toyota hybrid PCU found in the Prius.

  • The Motor

    The Motor

    The Motor

    For the electric motor, we chose an existing motor from one of our Lexus hybrid vehicles, providing a history of reliability and reducing overall cost.

  • The Boost Converter

    The Boost Converter

    The Boost Converter

    Our four-phase boost converter brings voltage to 650 volts. Driving at a higher voltage makes more efficient use of the motor, matching the Mirai’s power output to Toyota’s other hybrids. This is a key factor in allowing Toyota to use the battery, PCU and motor from other Toyota and Lexus vehicles.

  • The Fuel Cell Stack

    The Fuel cell stack

    The Fuel cell stack

    The stack generates power by combining hydrogen with oxygen from the outside air. Currently, Toyota leads the industry in this technology, achieving the highest power output while dramatically reducing the system’s price and size from its previous fuel cell vehicles.

  • The Hydrogen Tanks

    The Hydrogen tanks

    The Hydrogen tanks

    All of our hydrogen tanks are produced in-house and specially designed for the Mirai. Toyota’s origins as a loom-weaving business helped our engineers design the carbon fiber weaving on our tanks, significantly reducing production time and improving the weight-to-storage ratio.

  • The Battery

    The Battery

    The Battery

    The battery allows for regenerative braking and also assists during high power demands like accelerating, improving total system efficiency and fuel economy. Like the motor, the battery is an existing design from one of our Toyota hybrid vehicles, which provides a proven design and reliability.
