Toyota Mirai Beats Nissan LEAF In Japanese Racing Series (w/video)
The Toyota Mirai is a rare sight, especially in racing, but in August, the Japanese company sent a Mirai out for a spin in the 2015 Japan EV-GP Series.
The Mirai took second place in its debut event with a big advanatge over LEAFs, although the second Mirai placed 7th (when buying Mirai, choose the blue one – as obviously that color makes the car go faster).
Race distance is around 31 miles (50 km).
The Toyota Mirai has two advantages over LEAF – much more energy and more power on board, 113 kW from the motor, powered from 114 kW fuel cell stack, while the LEAF is 80 kW and 24 kWh battery.
