An electric vehicle is powered by electricity stored in a battery which needs recharging when it runs low. Whereas a hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle like the Toyota Mirai produces its own electricity through a chemical reaction in its fuel cell stack.
Refuelled with hydrogen from a pump in less than five minutes, much like a conventional petrol vehicle, the Mirai offers impressive performance, convenient long-distance motoring and its only emission is water.
