The new Toyota Mirai - performance and design

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