- Feb 18, 2017 -

According to BusinessInsider website reported that due to the existence of hidden dangers of the output voltage of the fuel cell system, TOYOTA announced that it will recall about 2800 vehicles with zero emissions Mirai.          

TOYOTA said that in the special driving conditions, such as the use of cruise control in the long downhill after the throttle pedal to the fully open position, the output voltage of the fuel cell boost converter produced is likely to exceed the maximum voltage.          

So far, TOYOTA has sold about 2840 Mirai cars in Japan, the United States, some European markets and the United Arab emirates.          

TOYOTA said that the company's dealers will be free for customers to update the fuel cell software system, complete the whole operation takes about half an hour.          

TOYOTA began selling hydrogen fuel Mirai vehicles in its home country in 2014, in an effort to lead the new technology industry in.
