New Toyota Mirai from Hodgson Toyota at Gateshead & Newcastle

Following on from its class-leading success in the hybrid segment, Toyota is debuting its hydrogen propulsion technology in the all-new Mirai which means “future” in Japanese. Foregoing the use of a combustion engine completely, the Mirai combines hydrogen and oxygen to run a generator that charges a battery to power an electric motor. The only by-product of this process is water.

The body of the Mirai conceals its futuristic underpinnings with avant-garde styling. Large air intakes in the front bumper collect the necessary oxygen to combine with stored hydrogen to generate electricity. The high sill line conceals the hydrogen fuel cell stack and battery bank stored underneath the cabin. The Mirai also features all of the modern details you would expect including alloy wheels and LED headlights and daytime running lights.


Inside the cabin, the Mirai is as high-tech and futuristic as its exterior. Designed to transport four adults in comfort, it features heated seats, a wireless charger tray and 4.2-inch air control display that allows you to change the cabin's temperature effortlessly. All navigation and multimedia functions are controlled from the large seven-inch Toyota Touch 2 screen which is mounted high up on the dashboard.

The Mirai accommodates a lot of running gear and technology and still has room for 661 litres of luggage capacity.

The Mirai's electric motor is capable of producing 154bhp and 335nm of torque, propelling it from 0-60mph in around 9.5 seconds. The two storage tanks contain approximately 5kg of hydrogen which allow for a cruising range of up to 342 miles. The lack of a combustion engine means that the Mirai will produce 0g/km of CO2.


To ensure the safety of the hydrogen storage in the Mirai, Toyota has rigorously tested its fuel cell technology for over 20 years. The storage tanks and impact-absorbing fuel cell stack frame are made using carbon-fibre reinforcement and are monitored constantly using intelligent sensors.

The Mirai also employs safety technologies and driver aids. These include a Pre-Collision System, Blind Spot Monitoring and Lane Departure Warning as well as eight airbags and energy-absorbing bumpers for pedestrian safety.
