Toyota is one of only a handful couple of automakers that has been very forceful in hydrogen energy unit advancement. It has been endeavoring to push U.S. offers of the Mirai, yet hasn’t had much achievement. The Mirai presently costs $57,500, while the Prius is simply $23,475. Indeed, even the Nissan Leaf begins at $30,680. That enormous contrast in cost alone is sufficient to prevent numerous purchasers.

“Because of these increases we expect—in Japan in any event—a similar auto sort to cost a similar cost whether it is a cross breed or fueled by hydrogen.”
This is a honorable claim, one that will unquestionably help with deals. Be that as it may, at that point we keep running into our other issue, the framework one.
