7 months ago

Toyota Motor Corporation and the Japan Automobile Federation (JAF) have partnered to develop a new road service vehicle that can support both hydrogen and electric vehicles. The vehicle, which is still in the prototype stage, was unveiled at a racing event in Tochigi Prefecture on October 2, 2023.

The vehicle is equipped with a hydrogen fuel cell and a battery pack, giving it a range of up to 600 kilometers. It also has a number of features that make it ideal for roadside assistance, including a tow hitch, a winch, and a variety of tools and equipment.

One of the key features of the vehicle is its ability to refuel hydrogen-powered vehicles. The vehicle has four hydrogen tanks that can be used to refuel Mirai cars. This is a significant development, as it means that hydrogen-powered vehicles will no longer need to be towed to a refueling station if they run out of hydrogen.

The vehicle can also provide roadside assistance to electric vehicles. It has a variety of charging equipment that can be used to charge electric vehicles, including CHAdeMO and CCS quick chargers. It can also provide towing and other services to electric vehicles.
