2021 Mirai is the first true overhaul of the hydrogen-powered car
The 2021 Mirai is the first true overhaul of the hydrogen-powered car since it first launched in 2015. Toyota says it is rebooting the Mirai as a premium sedan “with cutting-edge design, technology and driving performance,” thus focusing not just on its huge range and low charging times (a massive advantage over traditional battery-electric cars) but also on everything else.

Biggest news is the new RAV4 Prime is possibly even more exciting than a car that runs on hydrogen and emits only water vapor. The RAV4 Prime is the plug-in hybrid variant of the most popular SUV in America, and thanks to some powertrain magic, Toyota somehow managed to get 302 horsepower out of it and a whopping 0-60 mph time of only 5.8 seconds.
That’s two seconds faster than the RAV4 Hybrid and puts the RAV4 Prime in league with luxury and performance SUVs — none of which, it must be said, come close to the fuel economy numbers that the RAV4 Prime puts forward: about the equivalent of 90 miles per gallon, per Toyota’s estimate.
