App-based taxi service Drivr has put more than 100 hydrogen taxis into service in Copenhagen. The fleet of Toyota Mirai taxis comes as the Danish government has set a target of no new taxis with internal combustion engines on the roads from 2025, and all existing taxis must be zero-emission by 2030.
With the 100 Toyota Mirai, the number of hydrogen vehicles will now be significantly increased. Previously, Drivr had won a tender from the city of Copenhagen to handle the so-called "ad-hoc taxi service", which means that children with disabilities, mentally handicapped citizens, citizens on their way to hospital, municipal employees and politicians will in future be transported completely emission-free in hydrogen cars when driving a taxi.
Drivr's vehicles were funded under the European hydrogen for transport projects, Hydrogen Mobility Europe 2 (H2ME2) and Zero Emission Fleet vehicles For European Rollout (ZEFER).
