Toyota announces US prices for the 2022 Mirai
Toyota has announced pricing for the 2022 Mirai in the US, expected to arrive at Toyota dealerships this December. Prices for the fuel cell electric vehicle start at $49,500, excluding a ‘Dealer Processing and Handling Fee’ of $1,025.
Toyota’s newest model year for their popular FCEV has improved a number of technological features, such as higher safety ratings thanks to the ‘Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+’ system, which includes a whole suite of safety features from Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection to Road Sign Assistance.
The Mirai’s new powertrain is built on the rear-wheel-drive GA-L platform. According to the manufacturer, “the second-generation of the Mirai’s more powerful fuel cell system provides a more engaging driving experience than its pioneering predecessor”. Additionally, the RWD configuration also allows for increased hydrogen storage compared to the first-gen, front-wheel drive Mirai. This allows for a EPA Estimated 402 miles of range on the XLE grade version.
There is a more expensive version, named ‘Limited Grade’, starting at $66,000. The differences between the two vehicles are mainly cosmetic, although the Limited Grade also features additional software options. In addition, both models will receive up to $15,000 in free hydrogen fuel upon purchase.
To compare, the second generation of the 2021 model year of the Mirai actually had a range of 650 kilometres, however this was according to Toyota themselves, while the EPA is usually more strict with their ratings.
