2022 Toyota Mirai Powertrain Specs
The 2022 Toyota Mirai is powered by a permanent magnet AC synchronous electric motor mated to 3 Hydrogen tanks that produce an electric motor max output of 182 horsepower and electric motor max torque of 300 pound-feet of torque. The power is sent to the rear wheels through the standard rear-wheel drive system. Even with this eco-friendly powertrain, the 2022 Mirai can cross the 60 MPH mark from a standstill in an impressive 9.2 seconds.
Drivers can choose from three driving modes, namely Eco, Normal, and Sport driving modes.
To give you a better idea of how Mirai’s powertrain works, here is a simple explanation: Fuel cells create electricity by stripping electrons from hydrogen atoms. The hydrogen then bonds to oxygen to create water, while the electrons power the electric motor. The result is an electric vehicle that is fueled with hydrogen from a pump rather than electrons drawn from the nation’s electrical power grid.
