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