2021 Toyota Mirai Concept Review - Dealership in Pentiction
The Toyota Mirai is not a new addition to the Toyota lineup--it has actually been in select dealerships for over four yeas. However, the 2021 version is a stunning redesign of this hydrogen-powered electric vehicle.
2021 Toyota Mirai Concept Review
In 2015, Toyota debuted the Mirai as the first production hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicle (FCEV) offered for sale in North America. 2021 brings about the unveiling of the second-generation Mirai, which is now a premium sedan focused on cutting-edge design, technology, and driving performance.
For 2021, Toyota has made the Mirai a rear-wheel drive (RWD) vehicle while the previous version was built on the front-wheel drive (FWD) platform. This made the sedan longer, lower, wider, and stronger than the outgoing model. Toyota targeted a 30-percent increase in range, which would place the new sedan at about 400 miles of driving range. In addition, the 2021 Toyota Mirai specs include a length of 4,975 mm, width of 1,885 mm, and height of 1,470 mm.
What is a Fuel-Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV)
As a FCEV, the 2021 Toyota Mirai is basically a "plug-less" electric vehicle. There is no need to charge the battery. Instead, the FCEV's tank is filled, except with hydrogen rather than gasoline. As the hydrogen combines with oxygen, it produces electric current and heat (which power the vehicle) and water, which is the only byproduct.
2021 Toyota Mirai Concept Review: Exterior and Interior
The 2021 Toyota Mirai's clean and modern profile was inspired by coupes, but the sedan style makes it more approachable to all types of buyers. The exterior has a bolder stance and is more aerodynamics. It also features a brand-new blue colour never seen before on a Toyota vehicle.
Sliding into a 2021 Mirai feels like sliding into the lap of luxury. Sleek styling, high-quality materials, modern layout make the interior feel futuristic but welcoming. The Mirai includes a standard 8-inch digital combination meter and available digital rearview mirror, as well as a 12.3-inch touchscreen with navigation and a 14-speaker JBL sound system.
Drivers wanting a fun, futuristic, and environmentally conscious vehicle will be anxiously awaiting the specs of the 2021 Toyota Mirai.
