2021 Toyota Mirai hydrogen sedan debuts for USA

November 17, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The Japanese brand has just completed the presentation of the second-generation Toyota Mirai sedan for the US auto market. The start of sales of new items in America is scheduled for December.

The second-generation Toyota Mirai sedan, which is powered entirely by hydrogen, has just been unveiled in final production form ahead of its US market launch next month.

The North American version of the fuel cell electric vehicle is almost identical to its Japanese counterpart. This means that US buyers will get the same sleek sedan with a wide, low stance. It will be offered in two trim levels – XLE and Limited.

Toyota did not disclose specifications for the 2021 US version of the Mirai, but we already know that it is based on a new rear-wheel drive platform.

The exact parameters of the power plant are currently unknown, but Toyota has already announced that it is aiming for a 30 percent increase in the range per tank.

On paper, the outgoing Mirai was able to travel up to 502 km on a single hydrogen tank, which means that for its successor this figure should increase to 653 km.

The 2021 Mirai is equipped with the Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ family of advanced assistance systems. The updated “package” of safety now includes the so-called full-speed dynamic radar cruise control (DRCC), which can control the distance between vehicles until a complete stop and resume driving on its own. The system also includes a new feature that allows you to “overtake slower cars more smoothly”.

19 “wheels come standard, and a 20” kit will be available for the extra money. Depending on the selected configuration, the cabin is equipped with heated and ventilated seats, a panoramic sunroof, sun blinds on the rear doors and much more.

Not so long ago, we wrote that the passenger Toyota Proace Verso 2021 became an electric car. A new model has appeared in the Toyota lineup of electric cars – Proace Verso Electric. Along with the Proace Electric medium-duty van, the passenger version will hit the European market this month. But the first deliveries will have to wait until next year.
