Aberdeen City Council’s ambitious hydrogen programme is set to reach an even wider audience with the addition of the first two cars available for public use.The Toyota Mirai models will join the Co-wheels Car Club fleet in the city and will be available for club members to hire through the online booking system.The Mirai, winner of the World Car Awards’ green car of the year award, uses hydrogen fuel cell technology to enable long-distance emission free motoring – with a range of about 300 miles.The cars have received EU Interreg North Sea Region funding through the Hydrogen Transport Economy (HyTrEc)2 Project in which Aberdeen City Council is a partner. This is part of the Aberdeen City Region Hydrogen Strategy and Action Plan 2015-2025 to develop a hydrogen economy in the region.The distinctive cars are already becoming a familiar sight on the Aberdeen roads, with the council already using the Mirai as part of its fleet.The two new additions to the public Co-wheels hire will be stationed at Gallowgate Car Park and East Craibstone Street from 1 April.Aberdeen has two hydrogen refuelling stations, at Kittybrewster and Cove, to support the growing fleet of cars, buses, and commercial vehicles operating in the city as part of the innovative programme.
