Sarawak Premier Continues Using His Toyota Mirai
We wonder when other government leaders will start using emission free vehicles like this Toyota Mirai
While the big German automobile manufacturers keep pouring millions of euros into battery technology and electrification to keep Tesla out of their profitable markets, Toyota has been moving in a different direction.
Toyota has been spending millions of euros on making improvements in fuel cell technology which offer up to thirty percent greater driving range, plus improved acceleration and performance.
Meanwhile, some four years ago, in a special media preview one day before the opening of the Tokyo Motor Show 2019, Toyota management showed us their concept fuel cell powered Mirai sedan which looked very much like a Lexus sedan, inside and out.
They also announced that they will preview this next generation ground-breaking, zero-emission Mirai fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show.
This totally re-designed Mirai reflects a major step forward for FCEVs and the potential of a hydrogen society, boasting significantly greater range, improved driving performance, and an elegant, sporty design that offers increased passenger room and comfort.
One unit was handed over by UMW Toyota Motor and SEDC Energy to the Sarawak Premier, known by most as Abang Jo.
It seems that Sarawak is leading by example for the rest of Malaysia with their premier using the Mirai daily to prove how efficient and clean motoring should be. This picture was shared recently with the Mirai being used by the Sarawak premier.
When will our leaders in the rest of Malaysia follow this example and have emission free vehicles as their daily driver and not some high capacity petrol or diesel gulping luxury vehicle that is provided at an inflated price by SPANCO.
