500 Toyota Mirai for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris

Toyota Mirai Paris 2024

As part of its partnership with the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Toyota will supply a fleet of 500 Mirai to Paris next year.

The Japanese manufacturer’s commitment was to provide a fleet of electrified vehicles to transport officials and VIPs. And this will be the case with 500 examples of the Mirai fuel cell saloon car. The model, now in its second generation, will be powered by renewable hydrogen supplied by Air Liquide.

Tony Estanguet, President of Paris 2024, is delighted with the partnership. “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. We thank Toyota for its commitment with us!” he declared.

The Japanese manufacturer, which was unable to benefit from the aura of the Tokyo Olympics because of Covid, will now be able to promote hydrogen as one of the solutions in the energy mix. Toyota is not putting all its eggs in one basket and is continuing to develop several technologies. It is betting on e-fuels, hybrids and electrics, alongside hydrogen, which remains its ultimate goal.

Speaking of the Toyota Mirai, the car is the chief vehicle used by Hype taxis.
