In the UK, the novelty will go on sale in March 2021.

Toyota has officially unveiled the second-generation Toyota Mirai hydrogen-electric sedan. The novelty is built on the Toyota GA-L platform, on which the Toyota Crown sedan is based. Thus, the length of the sedan increased to 4,975 mm, and the wheelbase “grew” to 2,920 mm.

It is reported that the increase in passenger space had a positive effect on the fuel supply – the manufacturer managed to increase the hydrogen tank by 30% – to 5.6 liters, which provides the model with a range of 640 kilometers. In addition to increasing the fuel reserve, Toyota engineers have done a lot to reduce the weight of the car.

Compared to the previous generation, the new Toyota Mirai features a multi-link front and rear suspension with thicker anti-roll bars and stiffer shock absorbers. The car is equipped with a power plant with a capacity of 172 hp. and rear-wheel drive.

In addition to all of the above, the second generation Toyota Mirai received a revised design that became more aggressive and aerodynamic. In the cabin, customers will find leather upholstery, a wireless charger, a 12.3-inch multimedia system, a digital instrument panel and space for five people instead of four compared to the previous generation model.
