Unveiled earlier this month, the 2021 Toyota Mirai Sedan Concept made its first public appearance at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show.
The 2021 Toyota Mirai Sedan Concept is a taste of the upcoming second generation Mirai. The first generation of the hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicle (FCEV) was the first production vehicle of its kind for the Japanese manufacturer in North America.
Learning from the previous-gen, Toyota made some major changes and will reboot the car based on their premium rear-wheel drive platform.
“We have pursued making a car that customers feel like driving all the time, a car that has emotional and attractive design appeal, as well as dynamic and responsive driving performance that can bring a smile to the faces of drivers,” said Yoshikazu Tanaka, Chief Engineer of the Mirai. “I want customers to say, ‘I chose the Mirai not because it’s an FCEV, but because I really wanted this car, and it just happened to be an FCEV.’”
The 2021 Mirai Sedan Concept features not only a striking new, and more conventional, look but also a targeted 30-percent increase in range thanks to an improvement in the fuel cell system performance and an increased hydrogen storage capacity. That increase should give the second-generation a range of approximately 650 kilometres.
The 2021 Toyota Mirai Sedan will go on sale at the end of 2020. More info and its pricing will be announced closer to the launch of the vehicle.
