The Toyota Mirai breaks a new autonomy record

Toyota Mirai autonomy record

A crew made up of Toyota France and Europe employees, which included Victorien Erussard from Energy Observer, went beyond the 1,000 km mark (about 621 miles), achieving a new autonomy record in France last May by using the Toyota Mirai. The record was broken in August during a road trip in California. It was raised to 1,359 km (about 845 miles) and has just been published by the Guinness World Records 2021.

The crew, which consists of the two professional drivers Wayne Gerdes and Bob Winger, rode for two days. They started on August 23 from the Toyota Technical Center in Gardena and drove to San Ysidro in the southern part of the state, then they went up north to Santa Barbara while passing through Santa Monica and Malibu Beach.

The next day, August 24, the drivers drove during rush hour on the motorway between Los Angeles and Orange County.

The performance was praised by Bob Carter, President of Toyota USA.

After an unusual career (3 years in the French army followed by a 3-year degree in Applied Foreign Languages), it was my passion for environmental issues that finally caught up with me and led me to join Seiya Consulting and H2 Today in June 2022. First as an end-of-study internship, then as Marketing & Communication Manager and translator at Hydrogen Today.
