Pioneering power, proven safety

Fuel Cell Electric cars are as safe as conventional vehicles. Toyota has spent many years testing hydrogen-powered cars in extreme conditions and temperatures to ensure they can be used safely and reliably, just like any other Toyota. For instance, the Toyota Mirai’s multi-layer hydrogen tanks are so strong they can even repel a bullet shot from close range. Now that’s true peace of mind.

Hydrogen itself is clean, safe and all around us. It’s so common it makes up 70% of matter in the universe and is actually safer to handle than petrol or diesel.
