The first hydrogen-powered taxi fleet in the Netherlands has travelled 1.5million kilometres.
Consisting of 40 Toyota Mirai vehicles, the Noot Personenvervoer fleet has been operating daily since June 2019 in The Hague.
Martijn Kersing, Director of Noot Passenger Transport, said, “Due to the large range of the Toyota Mirai and the fact that you can fill it up quickly, we can meet all the requirements of this type of transport.”
“An additional advantage is that the car is spacious and comfortable. A bull’s eye now, because with 1.5 million kilometres driven, the first hydrogen-powered taxi fleet in the Netherlands is justifiably a success.”
Jan-Christiaan Koenders, Managing Director of Toyota importer Louwman & Parqui, commented, “We are of course very proud that the Toyotas Mirai are used so often.”
“Our hydrogen car is therefore ideal for taxi transport: spacious, quiet, very comfortable and of course 100% electric without the car having to be at a charging station for a long time.”
“All praise for Noot Passenger Transport who has successfully gone off the beaten track with his choice. This is a great milestone in the energy transition.”
