Not so long ago, hydrogen fuel cell cars looked like a distant future. Today, you can find a few models even in mass production. As one of the world’s leading carmakers, Toyota pays special attention to this segment. Engineers have been working on a completely new model for some time and latest reports suggest we could see it pretty soon, maybe already as 2020 Toyota Mirai. So far, not too many details are available. Still, our reliable source claims that the car will come in a form of a sedan and that will be pretty big. Expect to see it on some of the upcoming major car shows.
Though we still don’t have official information, the new 2020 Toyota Mirai will most likely come as a pretty large car. Most likely, it will come as a mid-size luxury car. It will ride on the company’s new TNGA platform and should have most things in common with the legendary Toyota Crown, which has been in the offer exclusively for the Japanese and few other Asian markets for decades. Expect similar overall shape, though it is still unclear will the new model is going to come in sedan or liftback body style. Also, it’s not clear will the new model come for the Japanese market exclusively, or we could see it in the rest of the world as well. In the first case, expect to style similar to the 15th generation of Crown.
Otherwise, expect the application of the company’s newest design language, which would mean a lot in common with the styling of new Camry. Also, consider that the 2020 Toyota Mirai should feature a bunch of distinctive details, to emphasize its powertrain design.
At the moment, this aspect of the car is a complete mystery. We can only say that the new 2020 Toyota Mirai will be a well-equipped machine. Most likely, it will stand somewhere between mainstream and luxury cars. This leads us to a conclusion that we can expect a lot of quality materials and plenty of tech features. The new model will have to compete with Honda Clarity, which already established its position in the market. Still, the new Mirai will be much younger, which means more up to date technologies and probably better driving dynamics.
This is by far the most interesting part of the new 2020 Toyota Mirai. Unfortunately, we can’t say many things about the new powertrain at the moment. So far, we knew that the new model will feature a hydrogen fuel cell powertrain. This should provide a decent amount of power, spectacular fuel economy and, above all, zero-emission ride.
2020 Toyota Mirai Release Date and Price
The 2020 Toyota Mirai will most likely have a premiere at some of the upcoming car shows. On the other side, the production model should arrive next year. When it comes to the price, some rough estimation would go around $35,000 – $40,000.
