Toyota Mirai, the hydrogen fuel celled vehicle from Toyota has helped the company be recognized as one of the 50 Most Innovative Companies of 2015 by Fast Company magazine.
As Fast Company writes, "Toyota plans to do for fuel cells what its Prius did for hybrids: make them ubiquitous and top of mind for environmentally conscious consumers."
The Toyota Mirai is the world's first mass produced hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. Already on sale in Japan, the Mirai will be available in the US in the fall of 2015.
As a four-door, mid-size sedan, the Toyota Mirai offers performance that fully competes with traditional internal combustion engines, but uses no gasoline and emits nothing but water vapor.
The fuel cell electric vehicle refuels in about five minutes and travels up to 300 miles on a full tank.
Fast Company also named Toyota as one of the most innovative companies in the automobile sector, writing: "While other automakers are experimenting with fuel cells as niche vehicles, Toyota is the only one to engineer a global release, making all of its fuel-cell components in house."
The full story will appear in the magazine's March 2015 issue.
