Bramble Energy becomes latest fleet to deploy Toyota Mirai hydrogen car

By / 9 months ago / UK News / No Comments

Bramble Energy has joined the growing list of UK firms deploying a Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel cell car for emission-free transport.

The Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel cell car is providing emission-free transport for Bramble’s day-to-day business

The business is a developer of low-cost fuel cell technology and took delivery of the Mirai in September to use for its day-to-day business.

The car has already covered more than 1,500 miles and next up is a planned trip to Scotland for a supplier visit, demonstrating the viability of fuel cell vehicles for everyday fleet use.

The company, based in Crawley, Sussex, will refuel its Mirai at the Shell and ITM Power hydrogen refuelling station at nearby Gatwick Airport.

CEO Tom Mason said: “By adopting the Mirai for our business we can help demonstrate how hydrogen fuel cells can be used effectively in real-life applications. The Toyota Mirai is a superb example of the fact that fuel cell systems are reliable and easy to use and it is a very comfortable way of travelling. We will use our Mirai to connect us to our suppliers and customers, all while emitting only water, improving local air quality and demonstrating the maturity of fuel cell technology.”

Other fleets that have already deployed the Toyota Mirai include engineering, construction, aviation and private vehicle hire firms.
