The three Mirai cars entered by Toyota France, one of which was driven by Georges Marsan, the Mayor of Monaco, all finished the race after completing a course of more than 1,000 km (621 miles).
Using a mobile refueling station developed by Air Liquide, the performance of the three cars demonstrated the sustainability of the hydrogen fuel cell over a long distance.
Organized by the Monaco Automobile Club from 12-16 October between Fontainebleau and Monaco, the e-Rally Monte-Carlo is a regularity rally compliant with FIA regulations and restricted to “zero-emission” cars. Thirty-five crews of nine different nationalities were registered, primarily with battery electric vehicles. The three Mirai cars entered by Toyota France all crossed the finishing line, demonstrating the performance, reliability and sustainability of hydrogen fuel cell technology over such a distance—the longest distance ever travelled in France by hydrogen powered cars.
The Toyota Mirai is currently available for sale in seven European countries: Germany, Denmark, United Kingdom, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
