The dramatic new second-generation Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel cell vehicle has been shown in near-production form for the first time in Europe.
The machine, which is due on sale later this year, was first displayed in concept form at the Tokyo motor show last year. Toyota has now revealed the latest version at a brand event in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
The Japanese firm promises the new Mirai will offer a major step forward in fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) technology. It claims a 30% increase in range over the current model, which manages just over 300 miles, along with improved driving performance.
The new Mirai is built on Toyota’s latest TNGA platform and features dramatic new styling, including a bold grille and a sweeping, coupé-esque rear. Toyota claims increased body rigidity and a lower centre of gravity than the original Mirai.
