Toyota is coming with a refined, stunning and more potent second generation Toyota Mirai fuel cell vehicle for the 2021 model year. The car is considered zero emission vehicle with advanced technologies. Check its details here!

Design engineers at Toyota definitely deserve a special recognition for pulling off this new stunning design for the year 2021 Mirai fuel cell version. This 2021 Toyota Mirai will obviously fall under the second generation of Toyota’s hydrogen fuel cell electrified vehicle. The first generation model met with a lot of criticisms from car enthusiasts and analysts all over the world, for its unimpressive exterior and interior look.

The re-branded 2021 Toyota Mirai is set to make its debut at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show

The first generation versions aren’t common on the road like most Toyota products, and we are not sure if someone has the first generation version here in Nigeria. We cannot also rule out the possibility.

The new version is a remodeling of the criticized earlier version, and it offers a massive rear-wheel drive to potential buyers. Looks like Toyota is taking into cognizance the underpinning of Lexus LS/LC. It has a wheelbase of 114.9 inches and a length of 195.8 inches. This will certainly appeal to a lot of Toyota lovers out there.

Most Toyota products may not have the exciting look of the luxury Lexus models but this new Mirai is unarguably one of the best looking designs from the automaker till date. This is in terms of low stance, and an elongated hood featuring flawless arc of its roofline, which looks like a coupe version. We don’t think you will be offended by its slightly larger horizontal grille, which works seamlessly well with the stunning headlamps and the DRLs.

On the inside, it offers a mouthwatering large 12.3-inch widescreen display alongside a stylish and massive digital instrument cluster that appears just like the luxury Lexus version. Looks like Toyota has decided not to fall into similar mistake in the cabin design of the first generation version that looks awkwardly like Prius. This new version is packed with a lot of impressive safety and driver’s aid features.

The massive digital instrument cluster is a really big step forward for Toyota fuel cell platform

2021 Toyota Mirai Performance

Of course, Mirai will come as a fuel cell electric vehicle but we are yet to get our hands on its efficiency, performance and powertrain details for now. If we are sure of one thing here on Naijauto, it is the fact that this 2021 model will come equipped with the latest and more efficient fuel cell technology.

The automaker also has plans to work on the thirty percent increment of the FCEV’s cruising range, which will be capable of achieving 400 miles in range as compared to the 312 miles current capacity. We are also expecting a quieter and more potent engine performance than the earlier version.

According to Chief engineer of Toyota Mirai, Yoshikazu Tanaka, said:

"We have pursued making ... 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,"

 "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.'"

How much is a 2021 Toyota Mirai?

Though the car hasn't been released for sale yet, its retail pricing is suggested at around 21.7 million naira, excluding delivery fee or any addition package.

Presently, we are really wowed by this 2021 Toyota Mirai’s impressive look but we are more excited to learn about its performance as it sets out to make its first appearance at the Tokyo Motor Show. It will then be released into the market towards the end of year 2020.
