Toyota has set an ambitious target to cut down carbon emissions to zero by the year 2050.

Toyota has decided to cut down its carbon emissions by selling fuel cell vehicles. Toyota will sell 30,000 fuel cell vehicles per year. Toyota plans to sell the number of vehicles by the end of the current decade every year. The move is aimed to reduce carbon emissions to zero by the year 2050.

“Let us resolve at least one of the problems of the 21st century,” Toyota Chairman Takeshi Uchiyamada, the chief engineer of the original Prius, said at an environmental forum (via AN). “We wanted to mobilize all of Toyota’s strengths.”

In December, Toyota launched its Mirai fuel cell vehicle. 350 Mirai have since been sold by Toyota. Toyota has decided to take the production of the fuel cell vehicle to 2000 by 2016.

By 2017 Toyota aims to produce 3000 fuel cell vehicles. Toyota is focusing on its fuel cell technology as an environment friendly alternative.

Fuel cell vehicles run on electricity which is generated by mixing hydrogen fuel with oxygen in the air. Fuel cell cars are being called completely green cars because they do not make any carbon emissions at all.

According to Toyota the introduction of the Mirai is the start of the hydrogen age. Even though the company knows setting a substantial target of 30000 vehicles is ambitious, they need to keep up the momentum. Toyota believes conventional gasoline engine cars will be obsolete by 2050.

Similarly Hyundai Motors and Honda Corp are also expected to introduce fuel cell vehicles. Hyundai is currently producing its fuel cell vehicle. Honda is also expected to launch its fuel cell vehicle next month.
