Now hydrogen cars will be seen hitting the Indian roads very soon. The much-awaited first hydrogen car has started its journey in India. On Wednesday, Union Road, Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari took a ride on it (Toyota Mirai).
No smoke; this car emits water.
The Union Minister reached Parliament today riding in this advanced car. During this time, this car running on clean fuel remained the centre of attraction of the people. This car was made under the pilot project of Toyota company, and an advanced fuel cell was installed in it. This progressive cell generates electricity from a mixture of oxygen and hydrogen. The car runs on this electricity. Only water comes out of this car in the form of emissions.
Union Minister told the future of India.
Nitin Gadkari said this car is environmentally friendly and does not spread any pollution. He said that this car is the future of India. Vehicles with petrol and diesel engines cause a lot of corruption, but hydro fuel cell cars do not cause any pollution.
The name itself means future.
Toyota Kirloskar Motors (Toyota) recently launched its hydrogen car Toyota Mirai in the Indian market. Gadkari had launched this country’s first car to run on a hydrogen fuel cell. Gadkari did not just call this car the future. Interestingly, the name of the vehicle also has the same meaning. The word ‘Mirai’ in the Japanese language itself means future.
This car works like this.
Toyota has developed a hydrogen-based fuel cell system for this car. This is also an electric vehicle, making the necessary electricity run using hydrogen. Hydrogen is supplied from its fuel tank to the Fuel Cell Stack. This car draws the oxygen present in the air around it. Then the chemical reaction of these two gases generates water (H2O) and electricity. Electricity is used to run the car, while water comes out of the silencer.
