Much like the Mirai’s performance, there isn’t anything too far out of the ordinary to report here. Anyone with experience of Toyota’s hybrid line-up will recognise the chassis dynamic on show here: a competent (if not precisely classy) mix of ease of use and quietly respectable comfort.
For the most part, the car hides its not inconsiderable weight behind relatively quick steering and the sympathetic buoyancy of its lengthy suspension travel.
It is the sort of roving body motion that can become conspicuously choppy on fast British B-roads but which otherwise serves as a respectably pliant platform for most journeys.
An occasionally bony secondary response is reminiscent of the way the Prius family used to ride and indicative of the fact that the Mirai’s architecture is less up to date than the fuel cell at its heart.
The brakes aren’t perfect, either, suffering from a brittle, regenerative numbness at the top of the pedal that turns into oversensitivity the moment you push through it.
Nevertheless, the car makes for a benign presence – as long as you keep your expectations modest.
Exploit all of the Mirai’s performance on a road less than arrow-straight and, at best, it will lean slovenly away from the nearest apex; at worst, you’ll overcome what little grip there is and activate the primitive stability control.
