Toyota Motor Europe (TME) has officially joined a project which aims to demonstrate that hydrogen (H2) can support Europe’s future transport demands.
Launched in 2015, Hydrogen Mobility Europe (H2ME) aims to increase the number of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) operating on Europe’s roads and will lead in the creation of a pan-European H2 fuelling station network over a period of five years. With over 300 vehicles and 29 state-of-the-art refuelling stations being deployed, the project is one of the most ambitious coordinated H2 deployment projects attempted in Europe to date.

Toyota joined the project in September and has already begun deploying FCEVs across the continent. Last month, Toyota sent 19 Mirai (left) to Clevershuttle, an eco-conscious taxi service based in Munich, Germany, and 11 to the Metropolitan Police service in London, UK.
TME will deploy 100 vehicles as part of the H2ME project by 2019.
H2ME is the largest European project of this nature and is based around an alliance of the four most ambitious hydrogen mobility initiatives in Europe: H2 MOBILITY Deutschland, Mobilité Hydrogène France, Scandinavian Hydrogen Highway Partnership and UK H2 Mobility.
Hydrogen Mobility Europe (H2ME), the project which aims to demonstrate that hydrogen (H2) can support Europe’s future transport demands, has announced that the first 100 fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV’s) deployed by H2ME are now on the road in Germany, France and the UK.
