    1. Hi Andrew. Thanks for your comment. At the moment there is a lack of refuelling points but there has been huge investement in the sector and we expect them to start springing up. Click the link for more on that: po.st/F2rU1C. The Mirai does not have a battery range extender but uses similar regenerative technology found on our other hybrid-powered vehicles to maximise range. If you have any other questions about the Mirai please do get in touch.

    1. Hi. Thanks for your comment. Although the Mirai will only have two pedals, it is not an automatic transmission in the traditional sense. The Mirai will have a CVT transmission just like all of our other hybrid-powered the cars. This is the optimal setup and means you can get the most mileage out of one tank of hydrogen.
