Toyota Mirai drives 1,003 km (623 miles) on one fill of hydrogen

A Toyota Mirai has set a new world record for distance driven with one fill of hydrogen. The new Toyota Mirai has increased the world record distance to 1,003 km (623 miles). After breaking the record, Mirai was refueled and ready to go again in 5 minutes.

Toyota said that the achievement demonstrates hydrogen fuel cell technology as a leading solution for long distance driving with zero emissions.

The journey started on 26 May at 5:43 am from the HYSETCO hydrogen station in Orly, France. The 1,003 zero-emission kilometers were driven on public roads, south of Paris and in the Loir-et-Cher and Indre-et-Loire areas. The distance & consumption were certified by an independent authority.

Green hydrogen was used during the record attempt. The average fuel consumption was 0.55 kg/100km, with Mirai being able to store 5.6 kg of hydrogen.

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