Looking to get an idea of what's in store for the Toyota electric vehicle lineup? The Toyota Mirai offers drivers a peek at early electric vehicle ideas from Toyota. The Toyota Mirai is the only electric model that Toyota currently offers and it's not your typical electric model, either. Indeed, it's a hydrogen-electric vehicle (takes hydrogen and converts it into electric power, which in turn powers the electric motor and battery pack). This unique propulsion system offers up numerous advantages over traditional electric vehicles, with probably the top one being its singular byproduct: water. That's right, the hydrogen conversion results in just water as a byproduct of the conversion.

Toyota Mirai Overview

The Toyota Mirai really covers all the essential bases, offering up 182 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. It also lives up to efficiency expectations by providing drivers with an estimated 76/71b city/highway miles per gallon of fuel economy. The Mirai is available in just two trim levels, with both options coming with a pleasantly overwhelming set of standard features. The base XLE trim of the Mirai includes a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment display, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a 14-speaker JBL premium audio system, wireless smartphone charging, and an 8-inc digital gauge cluster. Interior convenience and comfort features include heated front seats, SofTex-trimmed seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, and heated power-folding side mirrors. The Toyota Mirai Limited slots in just above the base trim, adding in heated rear seats, a dual-pane fixed panoramic moonroof, tri-zone automatic climate control, and ambient interior lighting.

Toyota Innovation

With Toyota set to release a flurry of new electric vehicles over the coming years, the Mirai provides drivers with a little glimpse of what might be in store! With such a promising electric vehicle already available, it’s hard not to be excited about soon-to-come Toyota electric vehicles.
