Now hydrogen cars are going to be seen hitting the Indian roads very soon. The much-awaited first hydrogen car has started its journey in India. Union Road, Transport, and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari took a ride on it (Toyota Mirai) on Wednesday.
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 center of attraction for the people. This car has been made under the pilot project of Toyota company and has been fitted with an advanced fuel cell. This advanced 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 that this car is completely environment friendly and does not spread any kind of pollution. He said that this car is the future of India. Cars with petrol and diesel engines cause a lot of pollution, but hydro fuel cell cars do not cause any pollution at all.
The name itself means future
Toyota Kirloskar Motors (Toyota) recently launched its hydrogen car Toyota Mirai in the Indian market. Gadkari had launched the first car in the country to run on the hydrogen fuel cell. Gadkari did not just call this car the future. Interestingly, the name of the car also has the same meaning. The word ‘Mirai’ in Japanese means Future.
India’s first hydrogen car works like this
Toyota has developed a hydrogen-based fuel cell system for this car. Actually, this is also an electric vehicle, which makes the necessary electricity to 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.
