Hydrogen electrostan completely redesigned in the hope of a sale.
In fact the model was fully declassified at the motor show in Tokyo last fall, but then it had the status of a prototype, and now has officially become serial. The automaker has presented the final version chetyrehdverki and confirmed that the Mirai will go on sale in Japan, North America and Europe at the end of this year.
As a concept, commodity Mirai second generation moved with front-wheel drive architecture of the New MC, familiar to some on the Lexus HS and the Prius V, the rear-wheel drive TNGA-N. in Other words, niche Ogorodnik turned into a close relative of the Toyota Crown. The dimensions of the new sedan – 4975x1885x1470 mm, distance between axes – 2920 mm. the car has not only grown in size, but acquired additional capacity for hydrogen, which now total three. Cruising range on one filling increased to 650 kilometers, with the cabin placed already not four, but five people.
Among other innovations – virtual tidy, a large touchscreen infotainment complex, a joystick instead of a selector transmission, wireless charging for mobile phone.
Original Mirai (by the way, in Japanese translates as “Future”) has sold about 10 thousand copies – quite a modest result for the six years of trading, even if we consider the undeveloped refueling infrastructure. It is expected that the new model will become more widespread.
