First Toyota Mirai arrives in Denmark
The future has just arrived in Denmark in the form of the fuel cell vehicle Toyota Mirai, which means future in Japanese. On 22nd of October, the first Danish Mirai-customer – a family dad from Holstebro in West Denmark – received the keys of his new fuel cell vehicle.
Jacob ordered the zero-emission fuel cell vehicle several months ago shortly after he learned that Toyota decided to introduce the Toyota Mirai in Denmark, as one of the first countries in the world. He has been looking forward to this day like a child looking forward to Christmas.
After years of research and development towards the ultimate goal – the zero-emission vehicle that neither has an impact on the climate nor the environment – it is no coincidence that Toyota has chosen Denmark as one of the first countries in the world to introduce the innovative fuel cell vehicle.
Fuel cell vehicles are exempt from registration fees at least until 2019 in Denmark. In addition, as the only country in the world, Denmark has a nationwide network of hydrogen refuelling stations with a total of seven stations in operation across the country. With a range of more than 500 km on a full tank it is thus now possible to drive Mirai from one end of the country to another.
