2019 Tokyo Motor Show showcase: Toyota Mirai Concept

The Toyota Mirai Concept is set for debut at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show from 24 October to 4 November. The concept is the next generation of groundbreaking, zero-emission Mirai fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV).

The Mirai was first introduced in 2014 to prove the global potential of hydrogen to power clean and sustainable mobility, combining a driving range with refueling time equivalent to conventional vehicles and emissions of nothing but water. Since then, approximately 10,000 Mirai have been sold globally.

The Toyota Mirai Concept is a final-stage development model of the second-generation Mirai. Scheduled for launch starting in late 2020, initially in Japan, North America and Europe, the second-generation Mirai is much more than an eco-car, marking a new stage for FCEV technology. Improvements in fuel cell system performance and increased hydrogen storage capacity mean the new Mirai will target a 30% increase in driving range. The vehicle has also been totally redesigned based on Toyota’s premium rear-wheel drive TNGA platform to combine greater agility and driving performance with a sleek and elegant exterior design.

Toyota  Mirai Concept key features

As its final conceptual stage, the Mirai gets a dynamic exterior design built on Toyota’s latest TNGA platform, including low lines, elegant proportions, sleek, taut bodywork and large, 20-inch wheels. A special body color for the Mirai concept comes in multi-layer Force Blue.

Inside, the main highlight is a 12.3-inch wide screen on the center console and instrument panel. There are five seats inside the new Mirai, instead of the current-generation Mirai’s four.

Toyota claims that the new Mirai offers a much better drive thanks to new range of powertrains with hydrogen fuel cell. Furthermore, Toyota’s latest modular platform gives the Mirai concept a higher degree of body rigidity, which contributes to greater agility and responsiveness, and a lower center of gravity, which makes for nimble, rewarding handling.  More details of the Mirari will be made available after the Tokyo Motor Show debut.
