Fuel cell technology developer Bramble Energy has taken delivery of a hydrogen-powered Toyota Mirai, to be used for day-to-day business operations.
The company is based in Crawley, Sussex, and can refuel the vehicle at the Shell and ITM Power hydrogen refuelling station at nearby Gatwick Airport.
Since delivery in September, the car has already covered more than 1,500 miles, and a visit to a supplier in Scotland is planned, which the company says will demonstrate the viability of fuel cell vehicles.
Bramble Energy 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."
