Powering the 2017 Toyota Mirai near Lynnwood
How the 2017 Toyota Mirai Available near Lynnwood works is by pumping hydrogen into the vehicle, which is where it gets its power from, rather than from gasoline or electric charging. When hydrogen is pumped into the Mirai, gas travels to carbon-fiber reinforced fuel tanks. Then the FCV’s front intake grill delivers air from the outside to the fuel cell stack which makes electricity. Hydrogen travels from the tanks to the fuel cell stack, where is goes through a chemical reaction involving the oxygen in the air, and creating electricity which powers the vehicle. Finally, when you step on the gas pedal, electricity from the fuel cell stack gets released to the motor. The only by-product being used to create electricity with the hydrogen and oxygen is water, which exits the vehicle through the tailpipe.
