The Games become 'Olympic' for Toyota which, as Worldwide Partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, will present itself in Paris 2024 with a fleet that also includes 500 fuel cell Mirai. The Toyota Mirai fleet will be fuelled with hydrogen from renewable sources thanks to Air Liquide, the official hydrogen supplier at the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Cédric Borremans, Head of Olympic and Paralympic Division at Toyota Motor Europe, said: "At Paris 2024, Toyota is preparing to show its innovative potential in the development of hydrogen-powered mobility solutions.
This commitment, along with other products, will be demonstrated through Mirai." "We have a shared ambition with the Paris 2024 Organising Committee - added Borremans - to reduce the environmental impact of the Games as much as possible through a fleet of 100% electrified passenger cars" Toyota Mirai was conceived to be an example of the Japanese company's commitment to offering zero-emission vehicles. This hydrogen-powered fuel cell sedan combines the advantages of electric mobility with great comfort, range and fast charging.
"Organizing Games that are a reference and more responsible from an environmental point of view - said Tony Estanguet, president of Paris 2024 - is one of the objectives we have set ourselves. We are delighted that Toyota, global partner of Paris 2024, is helping us take another step in this direction with the fuel-cell powered Mirai vehicles that will be part of the official Games fleet."
