The anticipation of the 2020 Toyota Mirai is all the rage. Like you, other Playa Vista drivers are wondering about its release date. It may surprise you that the Mirai was not the first hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. It was, however, the first FCEV available to buy in bulk. Since the first-generation model, more hydrogen fueling stations are accessible everywhere. News that makes the Mirai a contender in its class. Let’s take a look at what the newest Toyota brings to Santa Monica roads.

As we said, Toyota was not the first FCEV in its class. Honda took that spot in small quantities with the FCX and FCX Clarity. Toyota was the first to release the Mirai with the launch of 10,000 vehicles. More drivers were able to experience the Mirai than that of its competitors. The Mirai has become a trailblazer and ready to make its second debut with new changes.

2020 Toyota Mirai Changes


The arrival of the 2020 Mirai will say goodbye to the Prius-like front-wheel-drive platform. Instead, it will have a new, larger rear-wheel-drive. The RWD will be three inches long, and its wheelbase will be five inches wider. The Mirai’s platform will increase a bit, making it more comparable to that of the Avalon. It will also have a sleeker profile and face integration that connects to other Toyota designs. All without compromising the cooling needs of the fuel cell.

Technical development is pending, except for a 30% increase in the fuel cell system and hydrogen capacity. The 2020 Toyota Mirai will be more powerful and fuel-efficient. The 2019 model has an EPA of 312 miles, whereas the newest Mirai will have 400 miles. An additional 88 miles of adventures!
