Angela Merkel welcomes Toyota Mirai at IAA

Frankfurt Motor Show 2015 has been marked by a special visit to the Toyota stand: German Chancellor Angela Merkel has come today to the Messe‘s Hall 8 to take a look at the Mirai at IAA. It’s the world’s first mass-produced hydrogen-powered car.

Mrs Merkel has been welcomed and given a broad explanation of the benefits of the advanced technology by Dr. Johan van Zyl, President and CEO of Toyota Motor Europe.

The German Chancellor, having a doctorate degree in Physics, was impressed by the potential use of hydrogen, which also can make an important contribution to the ecological mobility targets of the Federal government.

Toyota Mirai will be available already as of middle October in Germany, one of the first European markets for the trailblazing technology.
