“This episode really gives viewers an inside look at Toyota’s unique fuel cell technology, Whether it’s providing emissions-free power for a car like the new Mirai, or helping to eliminate pollution from heavy-duty trucks, hydrogen fuel cells can be a real difference-maker for the environment.”

This week, Toyota unveiled its second-generation 2021 Mirai, a premium sedan with cutting-edge design, technology, and driving performance that uses a fuel cell electric powertrain. It’s the car of the future--which makes sense because Mirai literally translates to “Future.”

This weekend on Tomorrow’s World Today, field reporter Tamara Krinsky heads to Los Angeles to test drive the 2020 Mirai and learn more about Toyota’s newest addition as well as their development of zero-emission big rigs and how they’ve designed a maritime-specific fuel cell for a boat, aptly named the Energy Observer.

“This episode really gives viewers an inside look at Toyota’s unique fuel cell technology,” said Craig Scott, Group Manager, Electrified Vehicles and Technology, Toyota Motor North America. “Whether it’s providing emissions-free power for a car like the new Mirai, or helping to eliminate pollution from heavy-duty trucks, hydrogen fuel cells can be a real difference-maker for the environment.”

Tomorrow’s World Today will learn about Toyota’s zero-emission big rigs that use six hydrogen tanks and can haul up to 80,000 pounds. Krinsky then checks in with the Energy Observer, a boat that uses solar power, wind energy, and Hydrogen Fuel Cell technology developed by Toyota to navigate the waters.
