The new Toyota Mirai - Performance and Design

Source: AutoMotoTV (Glomex)

In developing the new Mirai, Toyota has optimized every aspect of the car to appeal to customers emotionally - in terms of power delivery and performance as well as the way the car drives and looks. The declared goal was to increase the range compared to the first generation to a level that exceeds that of most purely battery electric cars. To achieve this, the engine performance and the capacity of the hydrogen tanks increased as well as the aerodynamic efficiency. The result: a 30 percent larger operating range, which now reaches a good 650 kilometers. The Mirai is now finally moving up into the class of long-distance vehicles. Toyota has devoted just as much attention to the space allocation. The modular GA-L platform, which serves as the basis for the new Mirai, allows for much more effective packaging. The fuel cell unit has now been moved under the hood for a more balanced arrangement of the new FCEV powertrain. This clears the way for a larger interior, which can now accommodate five passengers.
