5.65kg hydrogen consumption

The company says the Mirai consumed a total of 5.65 kg of hydrogen and logged an impressive 152 mpg with water as its only emissions. The Toyota Mirai overtook a total of 12 hydrogen stations during the entire journey without refueling. In the two days of testing, it emitted zero kilograms of CO2, while a vehicle with a standard internal combustion engine would need to emit around 300 kilograms to cover the same distance. 

Bob Carter, Executive Vice President, Toyota Motor North America, said that "In 2016, the Toyota Mirai was the first production fuel cell electric vehicle available for retail sale in North America, and now the next generation Mirai is setting distance records. Proud to be the pioneer of this exciting technology, one of the growing lineup of zero-emissions vehicles in our portfolio."
