Tesla edges out Toyota for longest range zero-emission vehicle

Engadget Engadget 21/09/2016 Andrew Dalton

We knew Tesla was revving up and adding range to its electric vehicle lineup, but now we have the EPA's official word. The company's top-of-the-line Model S P100D is not only quickest production car in the world, but it's also the longest-running zero-emission vehicle with 315 miles of range – narrowly beating out Toyota's hydrogen fuel-cell Mirai by just three miles.

While the Tesla might get you up to freeway speeds in a heartbeat, the Mirai will actually spend less time at the fueling station. According to fuel network True Zero, a Mirai will only spend four minutes at the hydrogen pump and, in an impressive feat of their own, the company set out to land a new Guinness World Record for most electric miles driven in a 24 hour period. By connecting the dots between True Zero's fifteen fueling stations in California (and one in Tesla's territory near Reno), the two companies put 1,438 miles on a Mirai in a single day. While that figure should do wonders for range anxiety, it still has to be confirmed by the good folks at Guinness.Autoblog, Next-Gen Transportation
