We’ve known for a while now that the Toyota Mirai was going to be exciting, but none of the information regarding fuel efficiency and range was official—until now.
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has certified that the 2016 Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel cell vehicle will have with a 312-mile driving range and 67 mile per gallon equivalent (MPGe) for both city and highway driving. That means that Toyota’s original claim that the Toyota Mirai range would go at least 300 miles before needing a hydrogen refill was accurate.
These numbers are important in a market seeking clean transportation solutions. The majority of 100% electric vehicles don’t have the batteries to go very far, and even those that do still need to recharge for several hours before being good to go again. With a 312-mile driving range and 67 MPGe, the Mirai surpasses the Hyundai Tucson fuel cell’s 265 mile range and 50 MPGe. It even passes the Tesla Model S 85D’s 270 mile range!
