Toyota Mirai: Second generation to debut in 2020

The second-generation Toyota Mirai will be launched in 2020, Takeshi Uchiyamada, the Japanese automaker's chairman, has confirmed. According to Reuters, Uchiyamada made the revelation in Tokyo at meeting on hydrogen energy with ministers from around the world. We don't know anything about the second-generation Mirai's drivetrain, but it's possible it could use some of the hydrogen fuel-cell technology being developed jointly with BMW.

Toyota Mirai trials set for Hobson's Bay

Hobson's Bay has announced a 12-week trial of the Toyota Mirai, with three hydrogen fuel-cell sedans bound for the beachside city council's fleet. The trial, which starts today, will put the fuel-cell sedan in the hands of council members on regular day-to-day duties. According to the mayor, Angela Altair, the results will be fed back to Toyota to help it better understand what's required for hydrogen vehicles to work on fleets.

Toyota Mirai hydrogen trio moves to Australia

The hydrogen-fuelled Toyota Mirai is back in Australia once again, but even if its polarising styling sings to you, you won't be buying one. Just three examples of the Mirai have come to Australia - this time for a few years - with a focus both on exposing the company's local offices to the technology expected to power its future, and also to promote that same concept in the local market.

Toyota hydrogen cars could be powered by brown coal

Hydrogen is one of the most abundant elements in the universe, and that means there are potentially dozens, if not hundreds, of different ways to capture it. But a controversial plan from Japanese company Kawasaki Heavy Industries in conjunction with Toyota Motor Corporation could see brown coal dug up from Australian soil in order to produce this hard to obtain element, which will be used to power the hydrogen-powered Mirai sedan in Japan in the near future.
