Scotland introducing a first hydrogen taxi

France is leading the way, with the first fleet worldwide (Hype service), but Scotland’ is interested by hydrogen taxis as well. A one year pilot is about to begin in Aberdeen.

A Hyundai ix35 hydrogen fuel cell car was granted a private hire taxi licence by Aberdeen City Council in September and has now been handed over to Aberdeen Taxis who will run the vehicle. It joins a fleet of 10 buses, 14 cars (including the taxi) and four vans in the city.

The hydrogen taxi will form part of the Aberdeen Region Hydrogen Strategy and Action Plan 2015-2025 which plans to trial a range of vehicles with different users across the region.
