Toyota displays its hydrogen Hilux in Brussels

Several carmakers are in Brussels for the European Hydrogen Week. Toyota is taking the opportunity to present the Hilux: a hydrogen-powered pick-up.

While trucks are in the spotlight at the European Hydrogen Week, we may almost think we are taking part in a mini motor show due to the high number of vehicles. Several models of hydrogen-powered vehicles can be seen in the halls of Brussels Expo.

Toyota’s presence is hardly surprising at a hydrogen-themed event, and even less so in Brussels. TME (Toyota Motor Europe) is headquartered in Zaventem, near the airport. On its stand, the Toyota is of course exhibiting a Mirai but you can also see a Hilux hydrogen pick-up. We have already mentioned this model, which is being produced in a small series in the UK.

The size of such a vehicle may come as a surprise, especially at an event dedicated to sustainable mobility, which was disrupted on the first day by the arrival of a number of environmental activists. Right in front of it, you can catch sight of BMW’s iX5 Hydrogen, adopting the silhouette of an SUV. Renault’s Hyvia is exhibiting its Master H2-TECH van. As for Honda, it is not exhibiting a vehicle, but is showcasing its fuel cell. We know that the Japanese manufacturer wants to address both mobility and stationary applications.

The European Hydrogen Week’s exhibition is rounded off by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, which is exhibiting the LMPH2G, the first prototype in the MissionH24 programme.
