Toyota is committed to realizing sustainable development together with society, and to do that, they’ve created the Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050.

In 2015, Toyota introduced the Mirai, a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. It’s one of the world’s first mass-produced, hydrogen fuel cell, electric vehicles. It competes with traditional vehicles – but uses no gasoline. Instead, the Mirai creates electricity and emits nothing but water vapor. The Mirai is a Vehicle of Change that will help change the future of the mobility.
