As a concept and technical flagship, Toyota has launched Mirai second-generation electric fuel cell

In its entirety, Toyota rebooted the Mirai as a premium rear wheeled drive for sport-luxury electric vehicle fuel cell (FCEV), originally offered in 2016, featuring advanced architecture, state-of-the-art technology, improved driving efficiency, and a much larger EPA ranking. The 2021 Mirai is driven by the newest innovations in the FCEV powertrain, the state-of-the-art electric car fuel cell. The updated Mirai is part of a plan for electrification, including existing and possible hybrids from Toyota as well as new electric power cars (BEVs). The Toyota Mirai 2021 is designed from the first production version of a rear-wheel-drive GA-L design, supporting the bigger Lexus LS sedan. With a bolder place highlighted by regular 19 cm alloy wheels, the frame is lower and longer as well asĀ broader.

A better fuel cell technology delivers a more involved driving experience compared to its predecessor. The sporting luxury sedan driving experience with more agile handling but more relaxed riding is accomplished by the rear-wheel-drive mechanism with four-wheeled independent suspension. The RWD architecture also enabled the hydrogen store to be increased to 402 miles (Mirai grade XLE) for the EPA projected range, which is 30 percent more than Mirai, the first generation. Also, 650V like in the first Mirai, the fuel cell stack in the current Mirai remains 20 percent smaller and 50 percent lighter than in the initial stack, so fitting underneath the hood is simple. The new, lesser stack enabled the rear-drive turn. In contrast, the first generation Mirai was FWD, while the gigantic pile was put under an elevated portion of the passenger compartment floor.

The FC stack case now has a small, robust power control unit, which reduces device size. The relocation and Optimization of the electrodes, as well as screens on gas channel separators, contributed to a 12 percent improvement in power generation over the first-generation stack (128 kW, up from about 114 kW). This means 182 hp as well as 221 lb-ft of torque versus the first-generation Mirai with 151 hp and 247 lb-ft.

The 2021 Mirai has a lighter and smaller lithium-ion battery (98.3 lb versus 103.4 lb.) and a power greater than the first-genre model nickel-hydrogen battery (310.8v and 4.0 Ah, compared to 244.8v and 6.5 Ah in the earlier car). The more compact packet of batteries fits into the trunk and can carry two or three golf bags into the trunk. Battery cooling air is softly forced out of the cabin.
