Toyota Mirai to be used as Zero Car for WRC Germany

Toyota is making it known that they will return to motorsports in a big way over the next few years, with their Yaris WRC and various development programs for their 86 platform.

But what you’d never expect is for them to use a Toyota Mirai… as a rally car. In a technical sense, it’s not Toyota themselves that are entering the Mirai, but a private owner who will also be piloting the car.

That being said, Toyota Germany has offered a great deal of support with preparing the Mirai for the rigors of rally. Naturally things like suspension, brake pads, a roll cage, and bucket seats- all the basics needed to take on a rough and tumble special stage.

In addition to this, Toyota Germany is providing hydrogen fuelling stations, which will help keep the Mirai powered through the course of the WRC leg. Being the first hydrogen powered car to enter a rally, the engineers behind the Mirai are naturally very proud of it- and hopefully, there will be more hydrogen powered rally cars in the future to expand on this energy source.
