Three more units of the second-generation Toyota Mirai will be delivered to Sarawak. UMW Toyota Motor will also hand over three FCEVs (hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicles) to three Kuching deputy premiers.
This follows the presentation of the first Mirai to Datuk Patinggi Tsa Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg earlier in the year. He described the hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle, which he received in January, as one of the state’s efforts to use renewable energy. UMW Toyota Motor also presented four Mirai units to SEDC Energy during the January presentation.
The Japanese market saw the second-generation Mirai go on sale in December 2020. It is a completely new RWD luxury sedan. The Toyota New Global Architecture platform (TNGA), in its full-size, longitudinal layout form (GA-L), is the foundation of the current Mirai. The current model has a range of up to 850 km, thanks to the three tanks that hold hydrogen.
According to reports, Sarawak plans to start large-scale commercial production of hydrogen and export it by 2027. According to a July report, Kuching will also be home to an assembly plant for hydrogen fuel cell EVs, as well.
Petroleum Sarawak (Petros), launched its first multifuel station in April 2013. It offers the option to refuel with hydrogen in addition to conventional petrol or diesel fuels, as well as EV charging points. The stations are available in 22 kW AC and 60 kW DC formats.
I don't get why the government is so focused on EVs. We should be pushing hydrogen. Sarawak is a leader in this area. We rely heavily on coal and dam to power. The government will stop subsidizing electric tariffs once EVs rise. To develop the batteries, it is necessary to obtain so much rare earth.
Who is the "rest of the world?"?China is pushing EVs because 70% of all EV batteries worldwide are made in China. China will be the winner of every battery EV made worldwide, as 40% of an EV's worth is its battery.
The industry is currently unable to scale up green hydrogen production. The majority of hydrogen on the market is made from methane, which is also a greenhouse gas.. To make true green hydrogen, you must use renewable energy sources.
EV is the new auto mafia. Toyota has been vocal about hydrogen fuel for almost a decade. BMW and they have teamed up on Hydrogen technology. We doubt that we have the laws in place to dispose of this "e-waste" despite all the hype about EVs and clean energy.
Bro, I hope you realize that Hydrogen is not always free from the sky. It takes a lot of energy/electricity to separate Hydrogen from Water H2O. Hydrogen can also be very dangerous if it is not stored properly.
The battery EV is not long-lasting and is just as unsustainable as your smartphones. Once you realize that the battery capacity is less than you expect, you can dispose of your EV the same way you dispose of your phone.
The world has no idea how to properly dispose of these EVs, particularly the toxic materials and batteries. Do you know how much energy is required to produce and mine batteries? This would be equivalent to five years of CO2 emissions.
BEVs will have a shorter lifespan than ICE cars. ICE cars can last more than 20 years and can be passed from one owner to the next. Imagine how much EV waste this will cause.
Hydrogen cars, on the other hand, don't rely on batteries. There is no issue with massive battery disposal. We produce less waste if the car is not used for longer periods of time.
It is still an electric vehicle, but it can be charged using a plug. Instead, hydrogen is used to create electricity to charge the battery packs. To make the batteries, rare earth or nickel is required.
