Toyota revealed mid-October a concept for its 2021-model-year hydrogen-fuel-cell-powered Mirai, which now looks like it could replace just about anything in your garage.

This is only the second-generation Mirai, following up the first’s debut in 2015, and we think you’ll agree the styling has vastly proved. The vehicle now looks more like a standard sedan, with hints of European styling all around, especially in the rear three-quarter view.

Some trick 20-inch alloy wheels are included and look to be sourced from a Lexus — classy.

The Mirai (which means “future” in Japanese) uses a hydrogen fuel cell to charge its batteries, which means it makes even less of an environmental impact at fill-up compared to pure electrics. The only emission it creates from the tailpipe is water.

This latest generation of Mirai also has a larger hydrogen capacity, and a target 30-per-cent increase in driving range. The previous-gen Mirai had a 500-km range, so the new model could potentially have a 650-km range.

To add to the good news, the vehicle is based on a rear-wheel-drive platform, which means the vehicle might even be more fun to drive than previous models.

While Toyota is calling this vehicle a concept, we have no doubt it will go into production looking largely unchanged. The second-gen Mirai will go on sale in late 2020, but pricing has yet to be announced.
