2021 Toyota Mirai vs. Its Competition

2021 Toyota Mirai
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The Honda Clarity Fuel Cell has a 360-mile range and, like the Toyota Mirai, feels more luxurious, mature, and refined than other Honda vehicles its size—which is just short of the Accord.

The Hyundai Nexo goes 380 miles on a tank of hydrogen and is a spacious crossover instead.

Both are offered primarily through leasing, and only in California, like the Mirai.

Options with more flexibility include the Toyota Prius, which is offered in a Prime version with 25 all-electric miles and long-distance hybrid range after that, or several Tesla models.

The Tesla Model S is close to the Mirai’s size on the outside, and with a revamped interior and improved performance now offers more than 400 miles of range in its most affordable version.

The Tesla Model 3 also feels like the future for its standout range, efficiency, and interface.
