Toyota has revealed the production version of the second generation Mirai for the North American market, scheduled to go on sale next month. It’ll be available in XLE and Limited grades.
The production version looks identical to the concept we saw last year, including the optional turbine-like 20-inch wheels on the Limited trim (blue), which is a good thing. As standard, the FCEV rides on 19-inch wheels. The Hydro Blue paint is exclusive to the Limited trim, while the Oxygen White, Black, Supersonic Red and Heavy Metal are available on both trims.
For the cabin, the Limited trim gets a choice of Black or White perforated SofTex-trimmed seats with heating and ventilation. Both options can be paired with Gray stitching with Silver accents or Ivory stitching with Copper accents. Other standard features for the trim include a dual-panel panoramic moonroof with power sliding shade, power sunshades for the rear window, a rear touchscreen control panel, color Head-Up Display (HUD), 3-zone climate control, Bird’s Eye View Camera, and Intelligent Park Assist.
The XLE trim is not bad either, it gets dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, manual rear seat sunshades and power-folding mirrors with puddle lights.
It doesn’t matter which trim you pick, both come standard with a 12.3-inch touchscreen, an 8-inch digital instrument cluster, 14-speaker JBL audio system, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa compatibility, and Qi wireless charging tray.
Also, the 2021 Mirai gets the Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ suite of active safety and driver assistance systems as standard. These include a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD), and Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC). The PCS w/PD can also detect bicyclists in the daytime.
As for the technical stuff, the 2021 Mirai is built around Toyota’s premium rear-wheel-drive platform. A permanent magnet electric motor develops 136 kW (185 metric hp) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque. There are three hydrogen tanks with a total capacity of 5.6 kg (12.3 lbs). The car is also equipped with a 1.24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Toyota claims an EPA-estimated range of up to 647 km (402 mi). Curb weight ranges between 1,966-1,930 kg (4,335-4,255 lbs).
