It's hydrogen versus electricity, fuel cell versus batteries as we compare the 2016 Toyota Mirai to the 2016 Tesla Model X on a road trip to Lake Tahoe.

    should be interesting. presumably the Mirai should take less time as refueling is quicker. Not sure how you will measure convenience, which matters a lot for those of us accustom to getting gas everywhere..

    An interesting side note would be what would the fuel actually cost if you were paying for it. You covered this in a post on the Mirai a few weeks ago. The hydrogen for the Mirai is very expensive, far more than gasoline, so if Toyota wasn't covering the cost, the fuel expense would be like driving a single digit MPG semi.

    I would think that even with Cali's theft level electricity costs the Tesla is much cheaper to drive.

    What size battery did the Model X have?
