By Victor Ernest with Agency Report.

Toyota says it has recalled all of roughly 2,800 zero-emission Mirai cars due to problems with the output voltage generated by their fuel cell system.

The automobile company explained that dealers would update the fuel cell system software at no cost to the customer and the process would take about half-an-hour.

According to Reuters, Toyota has sold about 2,840 Mirai cars in Japan, the United States and some markets in Europe as well as the United Arab Emirates.

The Japanese firm first began selling the hydrogen-fueled Mirai in December 2014, in a bid to lead the industry in the nascent technology.

Toyota has promoted fuel cell vehicles as the most sensible next-generation option to hybrids, although a lack of hydrogen fueling stations remains a major hurdle for mass consumption.
