In Japanese, the word Mirai means ‘future’. That’s exactly what Toyota aimed to achieve with the original Mirai concept vehicle, with its eventual production build in 2015, and now with its evolutionary update in the second-generation hydrogen-powered 2021 Toyota Mirai model.
So, what can drivers, enthusiasts, and those interested in alternative fuel methods expect from this reboot of the Mirai model? From its concept promises, the 2021 Toyota Mirai continues to behave exceptionally as a Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) with an estimated 5-minute fill up time at hydrogen fueling stations and only water as tailpipe emissions. However, with an upgraded FCEV powertrain, all new tech features, and a complete redesign inside and out in terms of style, materials, and body structure, the 2021 Toyota Mirai greatly improves upon its previous model. Here are some of the changes the 2021 Toyota Mirai model has made compared to the previous Mirai generation in terms of performance, efficiency, range, comfort, convenience, style, and more!
Comfort & Style
|Increased Fuel Cell System Performance||Toyota Premium Multimedia System||Lower, Longer, and Wider Body|
|Increased Hydrogen Storage Capacity||8” Digital Combination Meter||Coupe-Inspired Design|
|Premium Rear-Wheel Drive Platform||12.3” High-Resolution TFT Touchscreen||Quieter Performance|
|30% Increase in Range||14-Speaker JBL Sound System||Brand-New Hydro Blue Color|
Those willing to get a closer look at the 2021 Toyota Mirai FCEV won’t have to wait forever. The second-generation Toyota Mirai model will go on sale in a period described by the Toyota company as ‘Late 2020’.
Toyota arguably revolutionized the electric vehicle (EV) craze with the Prius hybrid in the late 1990s and now aims to do the same with hydrogen-powered fuel cell models.
