The 2020 Toyota Mirai presents a unique vision of the future

The 2020 Toyota Mirai was meant to make electric cars as convenient as gas cars. Instead of plugging into a wall socket and waiting for your batteries to charge, the Mirai uses a hydrogen fuel cell to generate electricity. While filling up with hydrogen takes much less time than charging a battery-electric car, hydrogen stations are relatively rare, making this an impractical fuel for most people. In fact, Toyota only offered the Mirai in California and Hawaii originally, and very few were made.

That unusual powertrain provides a lot of green cred, but it generates much less thrust than a battery-electric or gas car. Still, the Mirai is very comfortable and quiet on the road. Adding to the Mirai’s uniqueness is its retro-futuristic exterior design–it’s just too bad the interior tech doesn’t feel futuristic. The infotainment is clunky, and some of the touch-sensitive controls can be frustrating to use. The 2021 model was redesigned with better looks and technology, and it’s easier to find used examples to buy (although they’re still relatively rare).

5 reasons to buy the 2020 Toyota Mirai

What We Like

Range and fueling: The Mirai’s hydrogen fuel cell gives it an EPA-estimated range of over 400 miles

, and refueling only takes a few minutes. By those metrics, the Mirai outperforms battery-electric vehicles.

Quiet and comfortable: Comfortable seats and forgiving suspension combine with a quiet ride to make the Mirai feel smooth and comfortable for hours on end. The Mirai is a pleasant place to sit.

Uniqueness: From the exterior design to the hydrogen fuel-cell powertrain, the Mirai certainly stands out from the crowd. And with its limited production numbers, you aren’t likely to see many other 2020 Mirai on the road.

What Needs Improvement

Hydrogen availability: The elephant in the room. Hydrogen fueling stations are still relatively rare and limited to only a few states. You’ll need to be sure you have access to hydrogen before you buy a Mirai, and consider it when planning road trips.
