Toyota’s answer to greener driving is the Mirai, a car that runs on hydrogen fuel cells.
Hydrogen-fueled cars produce one primary waste product: water. That makes these vehicles quite environmentally friendly.
For hydrogen-fueled cars to work, however, the world needs hydrogen fueling stations. More than a vehicle that works, the car manufacturer needs the infrastructure for people to actually drive it. So, Toyota is releasing thousands of vehicle patents until 2020 in a bid to get everyone on board. The patents for hydrogen production and supply will be available indefinitely. Toyota made the announcement at CES.
