Greentomatocars takes delivery of new Toyota Mirai

12 November 2015

 

Greentomatocars has taken official delivery of their new Toyota Mirai fuel cell saloons at a ceremony hosted at Toyota (GB) PLC’s Surrey headquarters.

The Mirai is the world’s first hydrogen fuel cell saloon, using hydrogen gas to generate electricity within a fuel cell stack, and producing no tailpipe emissions other than water. A full-tank driving range of around 300 miles bears comparison with a petrol-powered car and the refuelling process only takes about three minutes to complete. The UK is among the first wave of national markets in Europe for Mirai, together with Germany, Denmark and Belgium. Toyota expects 12 to be on the road in the UK before the end of this year.

 

Paul Van der Burgh, president and managing director of Toyota (GB), presents the first car to Julia Thomas, Managing Director of Greentomatocars

 

Julia Thomas, greentomatocars Managing Director, said: "We are a leading green private hire car company with a personal investment in the future of London and are always researching and exploring the latest technology to provide our quality service in the most environmentally advanced vehicles. The Toyota Mirai is ground-breaking in its development of a hydrogen fuel process resulting in no harmful emissions, providing us with a cost effective, environmentally forward thinking and sophisticated vehicle for the future."
