The next stage of FCEV technology.
Launched in 2014, the first-generation Toyota Mirai proved the global potential of using hydrogen to power clean and sustainable mobility, combining driving distance with refueling time equivalent to conventional vehicles and emissions of nothing but water. Mirai Concept is a final-stage development model of the second-generation Mirai. The totally redesigned Mirai reflects a major step forward for fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) and the potential of a hydrogen society, boasting significantly greater range, improved driving performance and an elegant, sporty design that offers increased passenger room and comfort.
A stylish and modern vehicle offering an enhanced driving experience.
Mirai Concept was developed to make a car that customers will want to drive all the time, a car that has an emotional and attractive design, and the kind of dynamic and responsive performance that can bring a smile to the driver's face. Mirai Concept features a dynamic exterior design including low lines, elegant proportions, sleek, taut bodywork and large, 20-in. diameter wheels that together generate a powerful and distinctive look. It will be presented in a newly developed exterior color (Force Blue Multiple Layers) that uses layers of color to achieve exceptional brightness and depth. The interior embraces the driver, providing a simple, modern space to create a feeling of warmth and comfort.
Substantial improvements in driving performance.
Engineered from the start to accommodate Toyota's full range of powertrains, including hydrogen fuel cells, Toyota's latest modular platform gives Mirai Concept a higher degree of body rigidity, which contributes to greater agility and responsiveness, and a lower center of gravity, which makes for nimble, rewarding handling. Improvements to the fuel cell system go beyond increased range to offer linear, smooth response when pulling away, unity between the driver's throttle inputs and the car's acceleration. Handling is light and easy on winding roads, while highway driving produces an exceptional sense of power at all speeds.
The Next Stage of FCEV Technology.
The next-generation, Mirai features a fully redesigned fuel cell system, including its fuel cell stack, that delivers substantially improved performance. This includes targeting a 30% increase in driving range over the current generation thanks to increased hydrogen storage capacity, among other measures.
