Toyota Mirai receives environmental award in Austria
Back in 1999, the first Toyota Prius was already awarded with the Environmental Award by ARBÖ for its pioneering hybrid technology, followed by the innovative Prius- Plug- in Hybrid in 2012. The Austrian automobile club ARBÖ* (Auto-Motor und Radfahrerverbund Österreiche) has awarded the Toyota Mirai with the “2015 Environmental Award”. This Award was received during a gala ceremony held yesterday in Vienna, where the Toyota Mirai was awarded in the category of “Current Innovative Environmental Technologies” . The jury consisted of ARBÖ automotive experts.
ARBÖ (Auto-, Motor- und Radfahrerverbund Österreiche) is the second biggest mobility club in Austria with more than a half million members. It was founded in 1899 in Vienna and evolved into an extensive service organisation for its members. ARBÖ is a founding member of the EAC (European Automobile Clubs).
With a focus on the next 100 years of automobiles, Toyota has proceeded with the development of a vehicle that offers a new, unique value. The Mirai is a pioneering vehicle that will contribute to a hydrogen energy society. In addition to its superior fuel cell technology and environmental performance, the Mirai is fun to drive, has a futuristic design that clearly marks it as an FCV, and offers a quiet and comfortable ride.
