Toyota primed to pump up production of fuel cell vehicle

Orders for the Mirai have outpaced output capacity.

NAGOYA -- Toyota Motor will more than quadruple annual output capacity for its Mirai fuel cell vehicle to 3,000 units by 2017, prompted by strong demand in Japan and plans to roll it out abroad.

     The Japanese automaker makes core components such as fuel cell stacks and hydrogen tanks at its headquarters plant in Toyota, Aichi Prefecture, and assembles the vehicle at a nearby factory. It announced the Mirai's specifications in mid-November and initially set production capacity at 700 units a year.
