Safety Down to a Science
Safety was a primary objective when engineering the Mirai. Our proprietary safety system is based on four fundamental principles:
STRENGTH IN LAYERS
A vehicle as groundbreaking and revolutionary as the hydrogen-fueled Toyota Mirai demands equaly groundbreaking and revolutionary safety technology. Case in point, our multi-patented, carbon-fiber-wrapped, polymer-lined tanks are built in a three-layer structure and absorb five times the crash energy of steel.
DRIVEN BY SAFETY
Over the years, Mirai prototypes have undergone millions of miles of road and track evaluation, rigorous in-house crash testing and more than 10,000 miles of extreme climate testing, helping ensure the same world-class safety you'll find in any Toyota vehicle.
BODY STRUCTURE AND DESIGN
Mirai features a unique frame designed to distribute crash forces efficiently. In the event of a collision, the impact force is distributed around the passenger cabin and the Toyota Fuel Cell Stack and hydrogen tanks, reducing body deformation and helping to reduce the chance of injury. The collapsible steering column also helps protect the driver by absorbing force during impact.
Pre-Collision System (PCS)
This system helps keep the road safe with a millimeter-wave radar that detects a vehicle ahead or obstacles, etc. on the same route. It provides an audible warning and a display notification to alert you of a possible collision under certain circumstances. When you depress the brake pedal after an alert, PCS powerfully assists braking power. Even if you don't react, automatic braking and collision-avoidance support will help prevent a collision. For example, if the vehicle ahead is traveling at 20 mph and Mirai is traveling at 50 mph Mirai will decelerate by up to 30 mph to prevent a collision or reduce collision damage.
EIGHT SRS AIRBAGS
The cabin is equipped with a driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System, front seat-mounted side airbags for the driver and front passenger, front and rear side curtain airbags, plus driver knee and front passenger seat-cushion airbags. They're all part of a system designed to help keep you safe.
