Toyota will soon complete production of the current generation Mirai hydrogen sedan.

The successor to the model, BestCarWeb notes on Monday 21 September, will go on sale in Japan in December 2020. Deliveries of the first cars are expected not earlier than April next year.

The new Mirai, which was built on a rear-wheel drive platform, has become significantly larger. For example, the length of the sedan has increased from 4890 to 4975 mm, and the wheelbase – from 2700 to 2920 mm. In turn, the track of the novelty was expanded by 75 mm at the front and by 73 mm at the rear axle, and the rims in the basic version increased from 17 to 19 inches. From now on, the sedan’s interior capacity will be five people instead of the previous four.

At the same time, the architecture of the interior will remain the same. The main change was the replacement of the 8-inch screen with a 12.3-inch infotainment display. The sedan will be equipped as standard with the latest generation of Safety Sense safety systems. Thanks to new radars and cameras, the collision warning system, which is part of the complex, has learned to recognize pedestrians and cyclists at night. The upgraded adaptive cruise control can start driving after a short stop.

Note that the number of complete sets of the serial Toyota Mirai will increase to four. At the same time, there is no information on how to improve the engine, the range will increase from the current 650 to 850 km.

In addition, more recently, fresh details about the new Toyota Land Cruiser 300 were published on the Internet. It should be emphasized that the new SUV of the Japanese brand will receive a traditional transfer case with a lock, a downshift and a rear interwheel differential lock.
