2021 Toyota Mirai:Redesigned Fuel Cell Car on Sale in December

Christian Wardlaw | Nov 16, 2020

Toyota wasn’t the first automaker to put a hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicle (FCEV) on American roads, but it was the first to offer the technology to any customer who wanted it, and to sell an FCEV outside of the state of California. Unfortunately, that pioneering FCEV, the 2016 Toyota Mirai with 4-passenger seating, looked like a catamaran on wheels. And an ungainly one, at that.

Now, a redesigned 2021 Toyota Mirai is set to arrive in California and Hawaii just in time for the holidays. Not only does it look more like a Lexus than watercraft, the new 2021 Mirai switches to a rear-wheel-drive platform that provides the car with a longer, lower, and wider appearance.

The new Mirai is roomier inside, too. It holds five people instead of four, and Toyota says it has improved comfort levels.

Choose Limited trim, and the FCEV offers more choice in terms of interior upholstery, stitching, and accent colors. The Mirai Limited also includes three-zone automatic climate control with a rear touchscreen control panel for climate and audio, heated and ventilated front and rear seats, rear side window sunshades, and a head-up display. A panoramic glass sunroof bathes the cabin in natural light, and the Limited trim also includes a surround-view camera and a semi-autonomous parking assistance system.
