Toyota accelerates production of hydrogen vehicles

Toyota continues to invest heavily in fuel-cell vehicles with zero emissions. The company, which raises Mirai sales to 3,000 units per year in three years, aims to have 30,000 pieces in 2020.


According to Toyota's statement, the company has launched two new major plants in Japan to prepare for this growth. Newly built structures next to the automobile plant will expand the mass production of fuel cell systems. At the same time, a new production line was set up to produce high-pressure hydrogen tanks.

The fuel cell stack generates hydrogen and oxygen, which ensures that fuel cell vehicles have zero emissions. Toyota will cut system costs by making high-grade production. At the same time, fuel cell vehicles will grow and provide greater availability for increased sales.

NEW PALESTINE MOVES

Toyota is moving to a completely new, state-of-the-art technology from its current production of fuel cell systems to access these facilities. It was built next to one of Toyota's first factories opened in 1938. The new plants will also help reduce CO2 emissions during production. This is one of the key initiatives that will contribute to Toyota's 2050 environmental targets.

While the construction of the new hydrogen tank production line in Shimoyama is beginning, the construction of the new fuel cell stack facility is continuing. The operations of these plants are planned to start around 2020.
