New Standard Features of The 2021 Toyota Mirai

The Toyota Mirai sees a complete overhaul for the 2021 model year as it enters its second generation. The most noticeable change is the complete revamp in exterior design. It is closely related to Lexus. It grows in size and will be a few inches longer and wider than the Lexus GS.

Engine, Transmission and Performance

The Toyota Mirai is powered by what’s called a fuel-cell electric powertrain, meaning that hydrogen among other sources is converted into electricity by the on-board fuel cell—essentially a chemical laboratory on wheels.

The electric motor powering the Mirai produces 182 horsepower, all of which is sent through a one-speed direct-drive transmission to the rear wheels. Likewise, the rear-wheel drive chassis delivers a surprising level of athleticism while preserving a refined and composed ride.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The EPA hasn't released estimates for the Mirai's fuel economy yet, but the previous generation model earned ratings of 67 MPGe for both city and highway driving. According to Toyota, the 2021 Mirai is good for up to 402 miles per fill-up of hydrogen.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The 2021 Mirai boasts a snazzy cabin that matches its swoopy exterior. Copper-colored trim pieces highlight several curvy elements on the dash and door panels while the nearly all-digital instruments and large infotainment screen dominate the upper part of the dashboard.

It's a futuristic and rich-looking design that's appropriate for a car with a 5 million kenyan shillings starting price. The more expensive Limited trim brings even more niceties than the standard XLE, including a moonroof, heated-and-ventilated front and rear seats, three-zone automatic climate control and more.
