It was created by students and teachers of The Automobile Engineering Course of Okayama Sanyo High School in Asakuchi, Japan, on 15 November 2010.

"Mirai" means 'future' in Japanese. The car runs on six main batteries.

The driving unit (motors and controlling components, including batteries) are from "Q-car", produced by CQ motors (Japan). Switching console is from a motorbike.

The chassis (steel), body (ERP), suspension, steering system, lights (LED), seat and all other parts were made at the High School.
