The car that, in my eyes, was the most technologically advanced of the EcoRun program was Toyota’s magnificent Mirai, the only fuel-cell electric vehicle. Its “fuel” was hydrogen. It has to be said that the Mirai is quite popular in British Columbia, where there are numerous refuelling stations (five, including one in Vancouver and the other in Kelowna). So I took the opportunity to cover 119 kilometres with this comfortable car, whose “consumption” was 0.94 kg/100 km (hard to know what to compare it to, except that to fill it up, Romaric Lartilleux, Toyota’s Public Relations Manager for the country, told me it had cost him about $45 . . . without really knowing if the tank was really empty).
