Toyota’s New Fuel Cell is So Good That Other Companies Can Buy It

Toyota Fuel Cell | Mishawaka, IN

Toyota is one of the world’s most prominent developers of hydrogen fuel cell technology, which will help contribute to a zero-emission future and promote long-term sustainability. As part of the automaker’s efforts to create a greener tomorrow, Toyota has designed a new fuel cell module that’s so impressive it will be available to other manufacturers to help lower their carbon footprints.

The conversation around efficient powertrains tends to focus on electrification, but Toyota is tackling the situation from multiple angles. It already produces two fuel-cell-powered vehicles — the Mirai sedan and the SORA bus. This new module will take things to another level, offering compatibility with everything from generators to ships.

Toyota will sell its module to customers who can choose the output and voltage range to meet their needs. They can choose between a vertically or horizontally packaged model, voltage outputs ranging from 400 to 750 volts, and the ability to generate either 60 or 80 kilowatts.

The idea is to help other companies with less advanced fuel cell tech up their eco-friendliness without needing to develop their own technology from scratch. According to Toyota, it’s easy to install, low-maintenance, and boasts “world-class, top-level output density per unit volume.”
