Through the Danish capital Copenhagen roles in the future even more Toyota Mirai. Like the car maker, 100 other fuel cell cars are used there as a taxi. Toyota and the drive service provider Drivr made an important contribution to pollutant taxi traffic, it continues to say.
Denmark pursues ambitious goals: On the way to emission-free mobility, the taxi experiment – as well as public bus traffic – is an important role as a pioneer and pioneer too. From 2025 there are therefore no new taxes more approved, the CO2 or other pollutants. Five years later, the industry should be exclusively emission-free on the go.
“The taxi-acquisition is an important driver for the green change. The taxes are constantly in use and focus mainly in the big cities every day many kilometers. The conversion of black diesel to green hydrogen allows the same flexible mobility – only without harmful emissions, “said Laussen Jensen, CEO of Hydrogen Denmark.
The drive service provider Drivr promotes the green transformation today, it says at Toyota: About the app of the provider, customers can choose between hybrid, electrical and fuel cell taxes. In cooperation with the hydrogen pioneer, the fuel cell fleet was now developed strongly again. While driving, the MIRAI sedan, which comes in the current second model generation with a tank filling up to 650 kilometers away, only water vapor. Even the tankstopp does not last much longer than that of conventionally driven vehicles.
Drivr has won one of the largest public tenders of Denmark for taxi services and now takes over so-called “Adhoc taxi services” in Copenhagen. People with handicap, children, sick on the way to the hospital as well as urban employees and politicians will be transported in hydrogen-based fuel cell taxes in the future.
The more than 100 hydrogen taxes of Drivr were introduced as part of the European projects “Hydrogen Mobility Europe 2” (H2ME2) and “Zero Emission Fleet Vehicles for European Rollout” (Zefer), which from the “Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Joint Untertaking” (FCH JU) get supported. This initiative where Toyota, the city of Copenhagen and other municipalities and companies involve, is committed to hydrogen-based mobility solutions in Europe and for expanding the corresponding infrastructure.

Toyota, it finally gets! That will not be in the car. It is too complicated, too inefficient and too expensive. Builds reasonable battery electric vehicles, otherwise you will destroy a big kingdom. EURES.
Popular with Massive Lobbying and Desinformation u.a. To BEVs, especially the “” Brain Nebelung “with the” panacea hydrogen “” .. Yes, H2 we need for the industry in the future in quantities, but just in such quantities, which the availability green streams already far, far exceeds – only to need we are H2 not for land vehicles!
In addition, the increasingly technical + financially possible Solar (partial) self-sufficiency Private consumers resp. Whole multi-family / households – which are likely to be reinforced by their purchase / use of BEVs the terror’s first class for these companies, which of course do nothing but their profits fear!
100 additional taxis 2 dispensing columns, currently a defect. Well then good luck.
Hydrogen vehicles are obviously only with massive state support economically.
A BEV taxi You could also easily use “buy from the bar” and a quick loader.
In Spain, rather in Madrid, it should probably also judge a leasing model – similar to the Hyundai trucks in Switzerland – apparently or does Toyota do not want to call a cost-covering purchase price.
Probably it will take many years to open up manufacturers of H2 vehicles at the price at the current BEV price level and as long as it is tried with rental models and / or small quantities.
H2 vehicles should get their chance, but they will probably always go afterwards, as the further development is likely to go faster for batteries than the price reductions at BZ and H2 tanks.
100 Tesla Model Y would have been cheaper
Otherwise, again wonderful these comments.
If you wins a tender, then it is so because you have given the most economical offer. If that does not get this from the Bev Heinis, then that’s their problem.
For vehicles that are highly utilized, the fuel cell makes a lot of sense.
As far as I should also use a larger hydrogen taxi fleet in Madrid, in Paris the fleet is to be greatly expanded and also in Oslo and Stockholm there are first hydrogen taxis.
Where did they have the green hydrogen?? When the gray is hydrogen, the action hurts the climate.
You can not understand some things, but it will continue! Hopefully quite expensive – there are far too many cars and billighimers should use public transport, cycling, go on foot or stay at home.
