As reported by Naijauto, the second generation redesigned Mirai is a hydrogen fuel-cell car that can be powered for one year by a single deposit of cow's dung.

The chief technology officer to Toyota, Shigeki Terashi, told car enthusiasts at the show that,

"The zero-emission concept car uses a fuel stack to transform liquefied hydrogen into electricity with water as the only byproduct."

The concept hydrogen fuel-cell car is capable of driving 400 miles when fully charged.
