Advances made on second generation Mirai

Toyota is gearing up to take its advanced zero emission fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) technology to new heights, with its second generation Mirai model.

Scheduled for launch in later this year, initially in Japan, North America and Europe, the new Mirai is hoped to showcase a 30% increase in the first-generation Mirai’s driving range through improvements to the fuel cell system and the use of larger on-board hydrogen tanks.

The new model will feature three tanks – one long, two short – which will increase the vehicle’s fuel capacity by around one kilogram of hydrogen compared to the current model.

“We have pursued the goal of making a car that customers will feel that want to drive all time, a car that has an emotional and attractive design and the kind of dynamic and responsive performance that can bring a smile to the drivers face,” said Yoshikazu Tanaka, Chief Engineer of the new Mirai.
