The Toyota Mirai is a 4-door saloon that emits nothing but water.
It’s not a pure electric car – instead, it uses a hydrogen fuel cell. This creates electricity through mixing hydrogen with oxygen from the outside air, which is then used to power the car’s electric motor and charge its battery.
It’s quiet and smooth – thanks to its electric drive – and it also has a reported range of some 400 miles. If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly option, find out more about the Toyota Mirai lease deals available at Vanarama.
There’s a good amount of interior room in the Mirai. The previous Mirai was a little smaller and only had 4 seats, but this bigger, hydrogen-fuelled Toyota has 5 seats and more room. The range-topping model also benefits from features such as a wireless phone charger, making charging on the go simple.
The boot serves up 321 litres of storage space, which is about as much as a small hatchback. While this may seem small for such a large call, the space has been better used for hydrogen and battery storage, which ensures the Mirai has a good range.
Running costs for the Toyota Mirai aren’t high, although albeit not as low as electric car running costs. Hydrogen costs more than recharging an electric car but, on the flip side, it’ll take a fraction of the time to get back on the road again.
The zero-emissions electric status of the Mirai does mean you’ll see savings elsewhere, though – such as exemption from London congestion charge. Every new Toyota is also covered by up to 10 years’ warranty, up to 100,000 miles, which should help keep costs down. The fuel cell in the Mirai is also warranted for 5 years or 60,000 miles.

One of the real strong points of the Mirai is its affordability. It’s not cheap compared to normal diesel or petrol cars – but it’s far less expensive than hydrogen-powered models from other manufacturers. The Hyundai Nexo, for example, costs a lot more than the entry-level Mirai.
Quicker refuelling and impressive range will make it more appealing to some than pure electric cars such as the Tesla Model S.
The Mirai’s zero-emission status also gives it strong appeal when pitched against more conventional diesel or petrol versions of the Audi A6 or BMW 5 Series – especially if you have to regularly drive in costly low-emissions zones.
The Mirai is a complex and innovative car, but Toyota has a sterling reputation for reliability so issues should be rare. A long warranty is also standard, so there shouldn’t be any problems in the longer term with your Toyota Mirai lease.
Every Mirai has 5 seats and a 321-litre boot, which should be capable of accommodating your regular shop or luggage without much fuss. It also has a good claimed maximum range – but you do need to bear in mind the realities of the hydrogen refuelling infrastructure, which can be limited depending on your location.
Design, Design Plus and Design Premium are the available trims for your Toyota Mirai lease deal. Design comes with lots of kit, including climate control and adaptive cruise control. Design Plus gets additional features such as blind spot monitoring and puddle lights. Design Premium adds lots of luxuries, including a heated steering wheel and digital rear-view mirror.
Toyota claims that the Mirai – which has 142.2 litres of hydrogen storage – can travel up to 400 miles. As is always the case, though, that figure could vary significantly depending on your driving style and road conditions.
A Mirai comes as standard with the Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system, which features a 12.3-inch multimedia display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, voice recognition, a premium sound system, WiFi, Bluetooth and DAB.
The standard Mirai comes with features such as a large digital driver’s display and adaptive cruise control, but the range-topping model benefits further from an advanced parking system, a head-up display, noise cancellation, powered steering wheel adjustment, and more.

Benefits Of A Toyota Mirai Lease
If you’re looking for a cleaner, quieter and more environmentally friendly car, then you should consider a Toyota Mirai lease deal.
It’s also a good option if you’re thinking about stepping away from petrol or diesel – especially if you’re not sold on all-electric power, thanks to its long range and short refuelling time. However, you do need to make sure you have convenient access to a hydrogen refuelling station.
The Toyota Mirai has a 5-seat cabin and offers improved space compared to its predecessor, as the new Mirai is longer, wider and lower. It also benefits from a smart-looking design, while features such as satin chrome trim and ambient lighting add a touch of class.
There’s no shortage of technology, either. As standard, the Mirai gets a large digital driver’s cluster and a big central infotainment screen, while the range-topping version also benefits from a head-up display.
The Mirai drives like an electric car – the only difference being that its electricity is generated and used, instead of being drawn solely from a previously charged battery. Despite its weight and size, the Mirai can accelerate from 0-62mph in a nippy 9 seconds.
It’s a refined car, too, thanks to its single-speed electric drivetrain, and that makes it extremely easy to drive. You only need to pick from drive or reverse, and the car will do the rest. This, coupled with its zero-emissions, makes your Toyota Mirai relaxing and pleasant to cruise around in.
The Toyota Mirai also comes with a wide array of safety and driver assistance features as standard, including lane departure alert, adaptive cruise control, emergency steering assist, road sign assist, automatic high beam and lane trace assist.
Toyota Mirai Saloon
The sole body choice of the Toyota Mirai is a 4-door saloon with 5 seats. In total, 3 grades are offered but they all feature the same key mechanical components and perform in the same fashion.
Hydrogen is supplied from 3 tanks to a 330-cell fuel cell, which generates power for the battery and an electric motor, which in turn drives the rear wheels. Toyota claims 0-62mph in 9 seconds, a maximum range of 400 miles and a top speed of 108mph.
The Mirai is an advanced saloon and, as you’d hope, it comes with an abundance of equipment as standard. The entry-level Design model comes with features such as dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, adaptive cruise control, lane trace assist, a cabin air purification system, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a 12.3-inch infotainment system and a 14-speaker JBL premium sound system.
