Toyota to unveil second generation Mirai concept at Tokyo Motor Show

Toyota has announced it will unveil the second generation Mirai later this month, demonstrating a major step forward in zero emission fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) technology.

The Japanese automotive manufacturer is targeting for a 30% increase in the Mirai’s driving range through improvements to the vehicle’s fuel cell system and the use of larger on-board hydrogen tanks.

The new Mirai will be previewed at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show between 23rd October – 4th November (2019) at Tokyo Big Sight & Odaiba Area. Initial deployment of the second-generation FCEV is scheduled for Japan, North America and Europe in 2020.
