The new Toyota Mirai has been developed on Toyota's GA-L modular platform, which allows the addition of a third hydrogen tank, thus increasing the range by 30% up to about 650 km.
Toyota's concept of hybrid energy has been adapted to the production of hybrid electric cars. The second-generation Toyota Mirai it's the living proof.
Now a new generation of the Mirai is released, a vehicle that takes FCEV technology to new heights. Thanks to a vastly redesigned fuel cell system, very smart setup and improved aerodynamic efficiency, its range is close to 650 km, with no emissions other than water.
The structural design has also improved considerably with its development on Toyota's GA-L modular platform, which equips models such as the Toyota Crown or the Lexus LS. The new Toyota Mirai has now more attractive proportions: the overall height has been reduced by 65mm to 1,470mm, while the wheelbase has been increased 140mm to 2,920mm. Taking into account the additional 85 mm of the rear overhang, the total length of the vehicle now reaches 4,975 mm.
With the launch of the new Mirai, Toyota will seek greater penetration in the market, up to a 10-fold increase in sales volume. That growth will be based on the superior performance and greater customer appeal of the new model, in large part because it is also a more affordable vehicle, with a sales price around 20% lower.
