The new Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle (earlier post) will offer an EPA-estimated 67 miles per gallon equivalent (mpge) city/highway/combined when it hits dealerships in California this fall, and an EPA-estimated driving range rating of 312 miles (502 km) on a single fill of hydrogen.
Toyota North America CEO Jim Lentz announced the EPA-estimated performance figures at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Aspen, Colorado. Mirai is the only electric vehicle on the market that tops the 300-mile (483 km) range milestone. (The Tesla Model S offers up to 270 miles.)
The Toyota Mirai is a four-door, mid-size sedan with performance that fully competes with traditional internal combustion engines. In addition to its range range and fuel economy, Mirai offers a comprehensive ownership experience:
Three years’ worth of complimentary fuel
Three years complimentary Safety Connect and Entune, including hydrogen station finder app
Three years of 24/7 customer call support.
Mirai Complimentary Rental Experience for seven days per year for three years.
ToyotaCare, the standard no-cost service plan and roadside assistance, is enhanced for Mirai and offers no-cost scheduled maintenance for three years, or 35,000 miles, whichever comes first; and no-cost enhanced roadside assistance for three years, regardless of mileage, including expedited towing service and trip interruption reimbursement at a maximum of $500 per day for up to 5 days per incident.
8-year/100,000-mile warranty on key fuel cell vehicle components including the FC stack and power control unit; FC hydrogen tanks; hybrid battery pack and ECU; FC air compressor, boost converter and ECU; hybrid control module (power management control module); and hydrogen fueling ECU.
