A Toyota Mirai just did 623 miles on a single tank of hydrogen
Mirai breaks Hyundai Nexo’s record for going furthest on a tank of hydrogen
Toyota says that if you drive normally, its hydrogen-fuelled Mirai can travel around 400 miles between fill ups. Drive much more carefully, though, and you could go further. Maybe a lot further.
By doing just that Toyota France has driven a Mirai 623 miles on a lone 5.6kg tank of hydrogen, thereby breaking the Hyundai Nexo’s existing record for the longest distance travelled by a hydrogen-fuelled vehicle on a single tank by a whopping 72 miles.
The company says the unmodified Mirai covered 623 miles, or 1,003km, on public roads south of Paris in the Loir-et-Cher and Indre-et-Loire regions of France. The distance covered and consumption, rated at 0.55kg of hydrogen per 100km, have been independently certified.
The four drivers supposedly used “no special techniques that could not be used by everyday drivers” and arrived home with an indicated 9km of range remaining.
