Toyota recalls all Mirai fuel cell cars

TOKYO, February 15, 2017

Toyota Motor Corp said it was recalling all of the roughly 2,800 zero-emission Mirai cars on the road due to problems with the output voltage generated by their fuel cell system,  a Reuters report said.

Toyota said that under unique driving conditions, such as if the accelerator pedal is depressed to the wide open throttle position after driving on a long descent while using cruise control, there was a possibility the output voltage generated by the fuel cell boost converter could exceed the maximum voltage, the report said.

Toyota has sold about 2,840 Mirai cars in Japan, the US and some markets in Europe, as well as the UAE.

Toyota dealers will update the fuel cell system software at no cost to the customer, it said. The process will take about half an hour, it said.
