2016 Toyota Mirai Offers EPA-Estimated 67 MPGe, 312-Mile Range

The 2016 Toyota Mirai has received its EPA fuel economy ratings, which allow it to claim the title of America’s only zero emission vehicle that tops the 300 mile range milestone.

The new Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle will offer an EPA-estimated 67 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) city/highway/combined (or 3.5 l/100 km) when it hits dealerships in California this fall. This corresponds to a driving range of 312 miles (502 km) on a full tank of hydrogen.

“Toyota realized in the early 90’s that electrification was key to the future of the automobile. Just as the Prius introduced hybrid-electric vehicles to millions of customers nearly twenty years ago, the Mirai is now poised to usher in a new era of efficient, hydrogen transportation,” said Toyota North America CEO Jim Lentz.

Toyota has also announced a range of services offered to Mirai customers in the United States, including three years’ worth of complimentary fuel (or $15,000 maximum, whichever comes first), no cost scheduled maintenance for three years or 35,000 miles (whichever comes first), three years of 24/7 customer call support, Mirai Complimentary Rental Experience for seven days per year for three years, as well as no cost enhanced roadside assistance for three years.

Toyota will offer an 8-year/100,000-mile warranty on key fuel cell vehicle components including the fuel cell stack and power control unit, fuel cell hydrogen tanks, hybrid battery pack and ECU, fuel cell air compressor, boost converter and ECU, hybrid control module (power management control module), and hydrogen fueling ECU.


  • I wouldn’t mind the design, but this is a scam.

    Congrat’s Toyota….you succeeded in topping the Aztec on “design”

  • JayM

    So yeah they offer 3 years / 35K no cost maintenance, but what happens after that? Do these potential owners know what would be the cost of regular maintenance after? I really doubt it would be the same cost as cars that use regular gas.
