Toyota Mirai: Everything You Need to Know

About the Mirai

The Toyota Mirai is a midsize four-door sedan that can seat four passengers. It’s one of only three hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles available in the U.S., and sales are limited to California and Hawaii. Over four years, only about 5,000 Mirais have been delivered.

The Mirai It emits only water from its tailpipe, and drivers fuel up at dedicated hydrogen stations in the two states. California has about 40 retail hydrogen stations; Hawaii has one, on Oahu.

One of the Mirai’s main attractions is three years of free fuel and relatively low lease costs. And in California, drivers get access to the state’s carpool lanes—even with only a single occupant. But drivers have to be aware that, because of range limitations, they need to know where to find the nearest hydrogen station.

What’s New in the Current 2019 Toyota Mirai?

The Mirai has changed very little since it went on sale in the U.S. as a 2016 model, though it now has a few more active safety systems than it did on launch. Specifications haven’t varied:

  • The electric motor produces 150 horsepower, and 247 pound-feet of torque
  • A full tank of fuel holds 11 pounds of hydrogen, compressed at 10,000 psi
  • The EPA rates the Mirai’s range at 312 miles on a full tank
  • The Mirai is available in just one trim level and six colors

What Does the 2019 Toyota Mirai Compete With?

The 2019 Toyota Mirai competes with both long-range battery-electric cars and two other hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles. These include:

The Mirai can be a good choice for commuters who appreciate the low running costs and free fuel, want access to HOV lanes, and don’t mind car’s unusual looks and sedate performance.

Exterior Design of the 2019 Toyota Mirai

To many shoppers, the 2019 Mirai may be the least visually appealing car in the Toyota lineup. It was the first model to break from that company’s historically bland designs. The result was somewhere between startling and bizarre, with a cacophony of shapes, accent lines, swoops, and angles. Still, some buyers find its styling quirky and refreshing.

The hood appears to “float” above the fender behind huge vacuum cleaner-like grille openings. Its 17-inch alloy wheels look too small for its slab sides, especially on lighter-colored cars. Standard features include LED lights, heated power mirrors, and a roof-mounted shark-fin antenna.

Interior Style in the 2019 Toyota Mirai

The 2019 Toyota Mirai’s interior materials are a mix of hard and soft plastic, and it has three digital display screens. The seats are comfortable, if fairly upright. There’s adequate, if not lavish, space for four adults. Cargo room is a middling 12.8 cubic feet, due in part to the crosswise hydrogen tanks. The seatback of this sedan doesn’t fold down, so larger items can’t be stored in the trunk.

From the driver’s seat, most controls are easily reachable. But some are less familiar than others. Understanding where and how some functions are accessed via touchscreen may require practice. Standard features include heated seats and dual-zone automatic climate control. Storage space for oddments is good, including the usual suite of cupholders.

What Technology Comes in the 2019 Toyota Mirai?

The 2019 Toyota Mirai’s main technological achievement is its powertrain, which is more complex than a battery-electric car. It feeds hydrogen into the fuel-cell stack, where a chemical reaction produces electricity to power the motor. A small battery provides extra oomph when maximum power is required, just as in a hybrid.

The Mirai has color display screens for driver information, infotainment, and climate-control functions. Standard features include an 11-speaker JBL premium audio system, navigation system, and various app-based connectivity features. Neither Android Auto or Apple CarPlay smartphone integration is offered.

What Kind of Safety Features are in the 2019 Toyota Mirai?

Toyota has recently prioritized fitting all its cars with a suite of advanced safety systems, and the 2019 Mirai is no exception. It comes standard with safety features that include:

  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Pre-collision system with pedestrian detection
  • Lane-departure alert with steering assist
  • Blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Front and rear parking assist

Other useful safety-related systems include automatic high beams, which we found to work well, and a driver alertness monitor. A less familiar feature for U.S. drivers may be road-sign assist, which identifies signs and shows them in the driver’s display.

What is the 2019 Toyota Mirai Like to drive?

On the road, the 2019 Mirai is rather like an older Toyota Prius. It moves you along with a comfortable ride, but the controls feel numb and somewhat disconnected.

Acceleration is smooth, though not particularly speedy. Toyota quotes a 0-to-60-mph time of about 10 seconds. It’s fine around town, but acceleration falls off toward highway speeds. That means short, swift merging demands careful attention. It’s all due to the modest power (150 horsepower) dedicated to moving a car that weighs more than 4,000 pounds.

The main sounds on the road are tire noise and a little background whine, with occasional whirring and gurgles from the hydrogen system and its pumps. Once drivers learn the instrumentation and screen displays, they’ll find everything they need. Outward vision is about average.

Should I Buy a Current 2019 Toyota Mirai?

If you decide you want to drive a 2019 Toyota Mirai, leasing is a far better bet than outright purchase. You get the benefit of low operating costs and carpool-lane access without having to worry about the future of hydrogen cars and their infrastructure. It’s also more economical, since good lease deals are generally available.

Customers in multiple dwellings or those who park on the street may not be able to plug in an electric car overnight. For them, the Mirai may be a good alternative for cheap, green, high-tech transportation.

Should I buy a Used Toyota Mirai? Are There Any I Should Avoid?

Since it’s a relative new model, used Toyota Mirais have been scarce until now. But with the first Mirais coming off three-year leases, used Mirais might become more available. Still, because they can only be used practically in California and Hawaii, their resale market will be limited.

Mirais likely won’t retain automatic access to HOV lanes indefinitely. And without free fuel after the first three years, they become less financially advantageous. It remains to be seen how Toyota will address these concerns as more Mirais come off lease.

How Much Does the New 2019 Toyota Mirai Cost?

The 2019 Toyota Mirai carries a list price of $58,500, plus a mandatory delivery fee of $930. That’s squarely in imported luxury-sedan territory, and the Mirai is far from that. The vast majority of customers will lease their Mirai, and Toyota has been advertising attractive lease rates. In either case, the company offers free fuel for three years or $15,000, whichever comes first.

More affordable long-range battery-electric cars are entering the market each year. That makes the Mirai’s 300-mile range and zero-emissions qualities less distinctive. With fast-charging stations for EVs opening at a rapid clip, the limits of hydrogen infrastructure are more constraining.

Pros and Cons of the 2019 Toyota Mirai

  • You could have the only one in your ZIP code

Cons

  • Only available in two states
  • Limited hydrogen fueling stations
  • More trip planning required than long-range electric cars
  • Only four seats
  • Pokey acceleration at highway speeds
  • Exterior styling might be a deal-breaker for some shoppers
Model History

The History of the Toyota Mirai: Four years of Mirai

The Mirai is Toyota’s first production vehicle powered by hydrogen. It debuted at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show and went on sale in Japan in December of that year. U.S. sales began in August 2015, with the Mirai being introduced to North America as a 2016 model.

Production volumes have been low so far, and sales are restricted to regions where public hydrogen fueling stations have been set up. Halfway through 2019, only about 5,000 units had been delivered in the U.S. The Mirai is still in its first generation, and few features have changed over those years.

Toyota as a company has not invested in pure electric cars. Instead, it offers an array of hybrid models and has placed its bets for a zero-emission future on hydrogen fuel cells. Mirai means “the future” in Japanese, and the company is spending billions on developing fuel-cell vehicles.
