At the 2015 International CES, YBLTV had the honor to meet with Toyota Motor Corporation, Fuel Cell Hybrid Vehicle Engineer, Jacquelyn Birdsall. Ms. Birdsall shared with us some of the wonderful and incredible features of Toyota’s Mirai.
The Mirai hydrogen fuel cell vehicle has an amazing 300 mile range, and can be refueled in just 5 minutes. The aspect that really caught our attention is that this vehicle also has the ability to act as a generator when the need arises. With a capacity of 9 kWh, it can power essential home appliances for up to a week in case of a natural disaster.
The thing the Toyota engineers are most proud of at the moment is their big announcement is that they have released 6,000 patents spanning 20 years of research and development to further the progression of alternative fuel vehicles.
I do believe we’ve reached a turning point… and an exquisite one at that.
