2021 Toyota Mirai review: Our expert's take

By Jennifer Geiger

Toyota gave us a sneak peek at the production version of its redesigned Mirai, a hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicle, when it unveiled the concept version in late 2019. Now the Mirai is ready for its 2021 production debut.

Full details haven’t been released, but here are three things to know about the second generation of what Toyota says was the first production hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicle available for sale to retail customers in North America. 

Fresh Styling 

The 2021 Mirai wears a more upscale look thanks to a new coupe-inspired body design. Toyota says the new Mirai has a more evocative, dynamic look with a wider grille and aggressive, narrow headlights. It’s also available in a new color: Hydro Blue. 

The sedan uses a new rear-wheel-drive platform that’s lower, longer and wider than the outgoing version. The extra dimensions should translate to improved occupant and cargo room. 

More Tech Features

Standard for 2021 is a 12.3-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa compatibility. Other standard tech features include a 14-speaker JBL sound system, heated front seats, 8-inch digital gauge cluster and smartphone wireless charging tray. 

XLE and Limited trims will be available. Limited trims add a color head-up display with navigation, heated and ventilated front and rear seats, dual-fixed panoramic moonroof with power sliding shade, a surround-view camera and a rear touchscreen control panel; the latter controls climate controls, rear sunshade toggles and audio controls.

Additional Safety Equipment 

Like the rest of the Toyota lineup, the 2021 Mirai also gets an impressive list of standard safety features. It gets the Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 Plus system, the next generation of the automaker’s suite of safety features. That includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, lane departure alert with lane-centering steering, automatic high beams and road sign assist.

The new model follows the first-generation Mirai that appeared in 2015, with more than 6,000 sold in the U.S. — almost all in California or Hawaii, where hydrogen refueling stations are more widely available. There’s no word yet on expanded availability. 

Toyota also hasn’t provided any power or range specs, but when the concept debuted, the automaker said the revised fuel-cell system will be more powerful and also achieve a 30% longer range (the current Mirai is rated at 312 miles) through greater hydrogen storage capacity and other revisions. Stay tuned for more information.

Fast, Sexy, Free Fuel for 3 yrs,Clean,Free Service

I owned the previous Mirai and all I can say is the new one is a significant step up. Dont get me wrong - the previous version was superb, but Toyota have tried to fix every quibble. The new version is slick to look at and drive with a highly equipped and state of the art cockpit with smart styling. Limited Edition that I have has a massive sunroof, heads-up-display and lots of titillation. Sportier exterior, larger feel and outstanding handling - better than sports vehicles I have driven. Free fuel for 3 years, free maintenance for 3 years, free breakdown for 3 years, plus money back from CA which covers your down payment makes the totally cost of ownership much lower than you would expect and lower than gasoline cars in lower price brackets
