Toyota New Zealand (TNZ) believes hydrogen is another step in the journey to a zero-emissions future. As with its industry-leading investment in hybrid technology, Toyota is pioneering the development of both fuel-cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) and hydrogen as combustible fuels in engines.
To pursue the development of hydrogen in New Zealand, TNZ brought first-generation Toyota Mirai FCEV cars to this country to test and share the technology with customers. Ten Mirai, including second-generation models, have been located in Auckland for a car-sharing scheme for customers who are committed to reducing their carbon emissions.
The Hydrogen Project is due to be launched in late 2021. The logistics of the scheme – contracts, maintenance, parking and refuelling – will be managed by Cityhop, a business owned by Toyota Financial Services.
While the national infrastructure for refuelling FCEVs is still growing, the trial hydrogen-car-sharing scheme was established as a catalyst for the burgeoning hydrogen market.
We aim to lower the country’s emissions by providing the most suitable electric vehicles in response to the economic environment, energy policies, industry policies and customer need. Hydrogen is one technology of many that can lead to low- or zero-emitting mobility solutions.
