Toyota has announced prices and specifications for its new zero emission Mirai fuel cell saloon, confirming a 24 per cent reduction in the on-the-road price to £49,995 for the entry-level Design variant, with business contract hire rates starting from £435 per month (excluding VAT).

Toyota’s second generation Mirai takes hydrogen technology to a higher level, with a new fuel cell powertrain that weighs almost half that found in the original model.  The redesigned powertrain and the use of Toyota’s GA-L platform have allowed for significant improvements to aerodynamics, dynamic performance and packaging, with a lower, wider stance delivering a responsive and refined ride.  The addition of a third fuel tank results in a 30 per cent increase in range, rising from around 300 to approximately 400 miles.

UK sales have now started, with reservations accepted prior to customer deliveries beginning later this year.
