New record helps symbol National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day in Canada
TORONTO, Ontario – Oct 8, 2021 – The 2021 Toyota Mirai has strictly set a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS pretension for a longest stretch by a hydrogen fuel dungeon electric car but refueling. The Mirai achieved an rare 1,360 km driven on a single, five-minute finish fill of hydrogen during a roundtrip debate of Southern California as it set a record.
Recently comparison by Ward’s Automotive as a 10 Best Engine Propulsion Systems winner, a Toyota Mirai’s record sets a new stretch miracle for 0 glimmer vehicles.
“In 2016, a Toyota Mirai was a initial prolongation fuel dungeon electric car accessible for sell sale in North America, and now a subsequent era Mirai is environment stretch records,” pronounced Bob Carter, executive clamp president, Toyota Motor North America. “We are unapproachable to be leaders of this sparkling technology, that is usually one of a flourishing lineup of 0 glimmer vehicles in a portfolio.”
The central record try was closely monitored by Guinness World Records, adhering to a despotic manners and support procedures. On a efficiency-focused Aug 23 and 24 journey, a Mirai logged an considerable 1.55 Le/100 km with H2O as a usually emission. GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicator, Michael Empric, certified a Mirai’s tank with a sign during both a commencement and finish of a journey.
Driven by veteran hypermiler, Wayne Gerdes and co-piloted by Bob Winger, a two-day outing began on Monday, Aug 23, 2021, during a Toyota Technical Center (TTC) in Gardena, California, home of Toyota’s fuel dungeon growth group. The twin trafficked south to San Ysidro and afterwards north to Santa Barbara cruising by Santa Monica and Malibu beach along a Pacific Coast Highway. They returned to TTC that dusk and logged 761 km with usually dual motorist swaps that day.
The subsequent day, Aug 24, 2021, consisted of some-more inner pushing loops, where they pushed by 599 km of morning and afternoon rush hour trade on a San Diego turnpike between Los Angeles and Orange County until a Mirai had no some-more hydrogen left and coasted into TTC with a grand sum of 1,360 km driven, as witnessed by Empric.
“As a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS decider for 10 years, I’ve had a event to declare implausible attempts, including several distance-related feats,” pronounced Empric. “The Toyota Mirai’s tour but a need to refuel showcases a energy of fuel dungeon electric technology. This record and a pattern skill by a group during Toyota led to a history-making moment.”
By a finish of a trip, a Mirai consumed a sum of 5.65kg of hydrogen and upheld a sum of 12 hydrogen stations along a expostulate routes but refueling. The Mirai was driven especially during rush hour trade in temperatures between 18 and 28 degrees Celsius. It issued 0 kilograms of CO2, where a customary inner explosion engine car would have issued about 301 kg of CO2 over a same distance.
The landmark formula were achieved by drivers learned in hypermiling techniques that optimized a Mirai’s car opening underneath specific continue and pushing conditions. They also leveraged some simple fuel-efficient pushing tips that any motorist can practice.
- Keep adult on all scheduled maintenance. A feeble tuned engine will bake some-more fuel, that can impact fuel economy.
- Ensure correct circle alignment.
- Check tire pressure, under-inflated tires can revoke fuel economy.
- Remove load or load racks to revoke weight.
- Avoid discerning acceleration or complicated braking.
- Avoid pushing during aloft speeds.
- Minimize using automatic and electrical accessories (i.e. atmosphere conditioner)
The acknowledgment of this record helps symbol the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association’s 7th Annual National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day (October 8).
