Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. So much so that it is theoretically possible to extract it or produce it in several ways. But in order not to mislead you, we have already mentioned that the most common way to produce hydrogen today is to extract it from fossil fuels.
In each car, similar to conventional cars, there is a specially prepared tank for storing this type of fuel. In order to generate energy, this hydrogen is released in a controlled manner, in contact with oxygen. It's later fuel cellHydrogen fuel cell, which is produced in the reaction that produces the electrical energy needed to move the car.
Toyota Mirai is available in Portugal with prices starting at €67,856.
