- Zero-emission fleet of hydrogen-powered Toyota Mirai will operate throughout Paris 2024
- Toyota has a shared objective with Paris 2024 to reduce carbon emissions of the games by 50% compared to London 2012 and Rio 2016, enabled by a fleet of 100% electrified passenger cars
As a Worldwide Partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Toyota is committed to providing sustainable mobility solutions to help build a decarbonised and inclusive society and is supplying 500 fuel cell Mirai vehicles as part of its official fleet for Paris 2024.
The Toyota Mirai fleet will be refuelled with hydrogen from renewable sources provided by Air Liquide, Official Hydrogen Supporter of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024.
In its goal to achieve carbon neutrality, Toyota believes in a multi-path approach to mobility through a diverse range of battery electric vehicles, fuel cell electric vehicles, full hybrid vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles, so customers can benefit from a range of zero and low-emission vehicles to suit their needs.
The Toyota Mirai is a prime example of the company’s commitment to offering zero-emission vehicles and its determination to decarbonise. This hydrogen fuel cell powered saloon combines the advantages of electric mobility with comfort, autonomy, and rapid recharging.
Cédric Borremans, Head of Olympic and Paralympic Division of Toyota Motor Europe commented: “At Paris 2024, Toyota is preparing to show its innovative capabilities in the development of hydrogen-powered mobility solutions: this commitment, together with other products, will be demonstrated through the Mirai. We have a shared ambition with the Paris 2024 Organising Committee: to reduce the environmental impact of the Games as much as possible through a 100% electrified passenger car fleet.”
Tony Estanguet, President of Paris 2024 commented: “Organising an exemplary and more environmentally responsible Games is one of the objectives we have set ourselves with Paris 2024. We are delighted that Toyota, a global partner of Paris 2024, is helping us take another step in this direction with the Mirai fuel cell powered vehicles that will be part of the official Games fleet.”
