Toyota Mirai breaks Hyundai Nexo hydrogen car’s world distance record

Toyota Mirai has set a new record for the longest distance covered on a single tank of zero-emission hydrogen. The under-production Mirai model, driven by a group of four drivers, travelled a distance of 1,000 km from Paris.

The total distance was covered on the main road trip, south of Paris, in Loir-et-Cher and Indre-et-Loire, and it used an average of 0.55 kg per km of hydrogen.

Mirai recorded a mileage of 9 km during the run. The car’s three tanks can hold up to 5.6 kg of hydrogen. Toyota informed the media that the hydrogen utilised for this record was green, with zero emissions from its production to utilisation in the Mirai.

Victorien Erussard, founder and captain of the first zero-emission hydrogen ship, was among the four drivers of the new Mirai. Erussard told the media that Toyota has always been at the forefront of hydrogen innovation, and their collaboration has become stronger each year. Erussard further thanked Chairman and CEO of Toyota France Frank Marotte and his team for including him in the zero-emission adventure.

At the start of this month, the Hyundai Nexo car set a new world record for the longest journey distance covered on a single tank of zero-emission hydrogen. The Nexo car covered a distance of 887.5 km driving among Melbourne and Broken Hill cities in Australia. The non-stop journey lasted 13 hours and 6 minutes and travelled at an average speed of 66.9 km per hour.

The new Mirai model is the second-generation fuel cell electric vehicle from Toyota. It gives more performance, a sleeker design and new driving dynamics compared to the first-generation product.

Moreover, Toyota said that this achievement shows hydrogen fuel cell technology as a leading solution for long-distance driving with zero emissions.
