When Toyota announced it would produce a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle to rival the likes of Tesla’s Model S when it comes to low emissions, we knew that the model would be a game-changer.
Now, Toyota has released the official stats on its incredible Mirai fuel cell vehicle, which received an EPA rating of 312 miles per tank, with zero emissions. Comparatively, the Model S, which was previously the longest-range electric car, gets a mere 270 miles per tank.
The EPA also releases information on “MPGe,” or “miles per gallon equivalent,” which aims to fairly compare the gas mileage of traditional cars to newer, more innovative models. The Toyota Mirai received an astounding rating of 67 MPGe.
Plus, one of the Mirai’s greatest advantages over EVs is that its fuel cell engine can be refueled very quickly—just like how a gas tank can be filled up in minutes—unlike EVs, which take a while to charge entirely.
What do you think of the impressive Toyota Mirai miles per tank? Let us know in the comments.
