Toyota is completing the preparation of the second-generation Mirai model for the Assembly line. At the disposal of Motor1 was a series of photos taken during road tests.
The prototype is being tested with a certain amount of camouflage on the front and rear, although there is no special sense in this: the company showed the design of the production version of the new Toyota Mirai back in January. At the same time, it was announced that sales in Japan, North America and Europe will start before the end of this year, and recently the manufacturer confirmed that indeed, the market debut is scheduled for December.
The new commercial sedan will be very similar to the Mirai concept, introduced a year ago. It will move from the front-wheel drive platform of the New MC to the rear-wheel drive TNGA-N, increase in size (new dimensions-4975x1885x1470 mm, wheelbase-2920 mm) and get a five-seat interior instead of a four-seat one. The interior will feature a digital dashboard, a modern multimedia system with a large touchscreen, wireless charging for a smartphone, and so on.
The main secret to date remains the characteristics of an electric power plant powered by a fuel cell unit. So far, it is only known that the hydrogen for them is now stored in three tanks, and the power reserve at one refueling station is increased compared to the first – generation Mirai by 30% – to about 650 kilometers.
