The Toyota Mirai has broken the world record for the longest journey covered on a single tank of hydrogen. The Toyota Mirai covered a loop of more than 1,000kms starting from Paris. The previous record was held by the Hyundai Nero hydrogen car.
Hyundai had previously managed to cover an astonishing 887.5kms on a single fill-up, and travelled from Melbourne to Broken Hill in 13 hours and 6 minutes, with an average speed of 66.9kmph. This record by Hyundai was just set a month ago.
Toyota broke this record with its Mirai covering 115.5 kilometres more than the Nero in the previous record set by the Korean manufacturer, taking the new record to 1003kms. The car even indicated 9 kilometres of remaining range even after the record was set.
During this record-breaking run, the Toyota Mirai used just 0.55kg of hydrogen for every 100 kilometres it covered. Toyota claims that the hydrogen used for the record run is completely green.
This simply means there were no emissions produced in the making of the hydrogen used in the car. The Japanese developed vehicle was driven by 4 drivers, including Victorien Erussard, who is the founder and captain of the first zero-emission hydrogen ship to sail around the world.
After the record-breaking run, Erussard said "I am very happy to have taken on this 1,000 km challenge behind the wheel of the all-new Mirai! Toyota is always at the forefront of hydrogen innovation and our collaboration has only grown stronger year after year. As a former offshore racer, I need to take up challenges and I warmly thank Frank Marotte and his teams for taking me on this zero-emission adventure which shows that nothing is impossible and that hydrogen mobility is here!"
Overall, this is a remarkable achievement and an eye-opener for many car manufacturers regarding the untapped potential of hydrogen-powered cars.
