Iniital batches will be almostly hand-assembled. Once the assembly line is refined, robotic automation moves in.

Delivery 2014(Japan), 2015(NA)

 

Love the way each worker double checks their work and finishing with a self-assuring gesture with a sign off.

The digital torque wrench is the preferred tool in the video.

 

Edit: The name "Mirai" means Future in Japanese Kanji or in Chinese "未来"

Well, if we take away all the tax, rules and regulations that LTA put up to stop us from owning a green vehicle, getting a Mirai is possible within the next 5 years or so given the fact Toyota plan to ram up production rate by 2018.

 

In addition, H2 station infra is quite doable in Singapore given the fact a single top-up takes only 5 min and can last around 500km range.

 

In short, its performance is like our current average sedan.

To think that we don't need to pump petrol anymore, is heavenly.  But of cos have to pay for the hydrogen and the infrastructure.  But I think 5 years is rather optimistic.  Even fully electric car also not commercialise yet.  The pessimist in me says 20 years.

Fancy Toyota's own "Newater" ?    Yes, it is really self-made pure H2O from its fuelcell engine.

No PUB's reverse osmosis needed.

 

A French reporter tried the water "exhaust" and gave his verdict.

Last time, I checked, he is still alive and healthy..

Honda has been running FCX Clarity, a hydrogen fuel cell car in California since 2008. and the infrastructure for pumping hydrogen has never expanded out of California yet.  so in spore it will more difficult, remember the mad rush to install the gas tank in the car with the promise that the govt will support it with building more gas filling station, where did that go? down the drain i guess.

FCX is more of a concept field experiment and production was very  low since 2009.

 

For CNG, cannot compare since it is an after-market setup and hardly consider as a zero-emission nor a EV system.

Also considering how the authority made life with CNG almost economically unsustainable, the policies and market basically killed of this alternative.

Electric system derived from Prius but using a hydrogen fuel-cell to supply power to the motors.

Unfortunately we do not have the infrastructure for hydrogen fuel cell car refueling. We don't have it either for EVs like the Leaf or i3- only landed properties could run an EV.

The Mirai looks terrible to me... the new Prius gets some styling cues from it but at least doesn't look so bad.

Honda's older Clarity FCX fuel cell car looks less weird though not really a beauty either.

Toyota has confirmed will be working on Lexus version of fuel-cell hybrid based on Mirai.

 

My bet is this Concept will become reality based on Toyota track record in Prius.

 

 

Lexus LF-FC Concept

Hope this clip help.  Note this guy is from Shell - which is investing in hydrogen-based infrastructure and refueling system.

It seems the liquid H2 is cooled for -20C for optium refuelling.

 

Accordng to Toyota,  Mirai will cover over 550km after a 5 min empty to full tank topup.

Looks like someone driven a corolla into a box and got stuck with it. I don't like the interior and exterior. Macam the designer suddenly remember he needs to submit the design the next day and did a half past six job.

To give some insight into the Mirai design, what I recall from an article I read some months ago:

 

The front end has such huge gaping maws because the hydrogen system requires extensive air-intakes - it requires oxygen for the process.

 

The side character lines are intended to evoke thoughts of flowing water from front to back, as the Mirai characteristically produces merely water (no carbon emissions) as a result of its hydrogen fuel cell.

 

It is also shaped to provide advanced aerodynamics.

 

 

Besides those aspects, well, I don't really know what else Toyota's designers were after [sweatdrop]
