The second-generation Toyota Mirai hydrogen car set a mileage record at one gas station: it traveled 845 miles, which is exactly 1360 km. As Bob Carter, executive vice president of Toyota North America said, “In 2016, the Toyota Mirai was the first mass-produced fuel cell electric vehicle available for sale in North America, and now the next-generation Mirai is setting mileage records. “

Mirai is a hybrid: as a result of the chemical reaction of the interaction of hydrogen and oxygen, electricity is generated, which is supplied to the electric motor, and it already sets the car in motion.

The record-breaking economy of Mirai has been closely monitored by representatives of the Guinness Book of Records. In the end, Judge Michael Empric confirmed the record by affixing a seal on the Mirai fuel tank hatch.

The so-called “hypermillers” (drivers who have repeatedly participated in the economy races), Wayne Gedes and Bob Winger, set the record. On the first day in California, they traveled 473 miles (761.2 km), on the second – another 372 miles (598.7 km). The record set by the “hypermillers” is approximately twice the passport mileage of Mirai on a single hydrogen refueling.
