A PRIVATE TAXI FIRM IN LONDON NOW BOASTS EUROPE’S LARGEST ZERO EMISSION CORPORATE FLEET WITH MORE HYDROGEN POWERED VEHICLES ADDED THIS MONTH.

The 25 new Toyota Mirais (which means ‘Future’ in Japanese) deployed to Green Tomato Cars will double the size of their hydrogen fleet, taking the total number of hydrogen vehicles to 50, and contribute to cleaner air and sustainable travel across the city. The vehicles use hydrogen fuel cell technology to deliver a range of 300 miles from a three-minute refuelling time and operate 24/7 in London and the surrounding area

ITM Power opened today, 25 October 2019, its eighth UK public access hydrogen refuelling station (HRS) located at the Shell services, Gatwick Airport on the M23 corridor south of London. 

The new HRS is the second of two stations in the UK to be deployed as part of the pan European H2ME2 project,  funded by the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) and the Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV). It uses electricity via a renewable energy contract and water to generate hydrogen on-site with no need for deliveries.
