Green Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV)

On 16th March, Union Ministry for Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari inaugurated a pilot project for Hydrogen-based advanced Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV).

About the pilot project

  • This pilot project was initiated by Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd. For this project, Toyota will work with International Center for Automotive Technology (ICAT).
  • The project involves studying and evaluating the world’s most advanced Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) called “Toyota Mirai” on Indian roads and climatic conditions.
  • The aim is to spread awareness regarding Hydrogen, Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) technology, and disseminate the benefits to support a hydrogen-based ecosystem.

About Toyota Mirai

Toyota Mirai was launched in 2014 & is one of the world’s first hydrogen fuel electric vehicles. The word ‘Mirai’ in the Japanese language means ‘future’. It is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell battery pack. It can provide a range of up to 650 km in a single charge. It has a short refueling time of just around five minutes.

About FCEV

Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) is powered by hydrogen. FCEV is environment-friendly, as it has zero tailpipe emissions. Thus it is one of the best zero-emission solutions.

About Green hydrogen

Green hydrogen is the hydrogen produced using renewable energy through electrolysis. Green hydrogen helps to decarbonize various sectors such as road transportation.

Introducing Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) technology to tap into the green hydrogen’s potential will help in providing clean and affordable energy for all.
