Hydrogen-powered vehicles are a sub-niche among the niche of electric vehicles and the 2021 Toyota Mirai is the most stylish one of them all. The 2021 Toyota Mirai is powered by a fuel cell that generates electricity for its on-board electric motor by creating a chemical reaction that clears the hydrogen of its electrons. In between fill-ups, the 2021 Toyota Mirai delivers a great experience, plenty of styles, and a comfortable ride. Sadly, the Toyota Mirai is only on sale in California.
The Mirai is powered by a fuel-cell electric powertrain, meaning that hydrogen is converted into electricity by the on-board fuel cell essentially a chemical laboratory on wheels. Fuel cells produce electricity by stripping electrons from hydrogen atoms, the hydrogen then combine to oxygen to create water, while the electrons power the electric motor. The electric motor powering the 2021 Toyota Mirai generates 182 horsepower, all of which is delivered through a one-speed direct-drive transmission to the rear wheels.
The 2021 Toyota Mirai boasts a stylish cabin that matches its attractive exterior. Copper-colored trim pieces underlined several curvy segments on the dash and door panels while the nearly all-digital instruments and large infotainment screen covers the upper part of the dashboard. The vehicle is a futuristic and rich-looking design that’s appropriate for a car with a $50,000 starting price. The more expensive Limited trim brings even more details than the standard XLE, including a moonroof, heated-and-ventilated front and rear seats, and so on.
The Toyota Mirai comes standard with a large 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system just like the one found in high-end versions of the Toyota Highlander SUV. Features such as a Wi-Fi hotspot, a 14-speaker JBL audio system, SiriusXM satellite radio, and in-dash navigation are all standard in the vehicle, it also has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
