Director General of the Municipality in Ajman tests zero emission Toyota Mirai


Dubai, United Arab Emirates - Al-Futtaim Motors, exclusive distributor of Toyota, Lexus, Hino and Toyota Material Handling Equipment and leader in sustainable mobility in the UAE, introduced His Excellency Abdul Rahman Mohammed Al Nuaimi, Director General of the Municipality and Planning Department in Ajman, to the zero emission hydrogen fuel cell Toyota Mirai at its headquarters, as part of its efforts in providing more sustainable motoring in-line with the UAE Vision 2021, moving a step closer towards a future of greener mobility.

His Excellency highlighted the importance of the Emirate of Ajman’s efforts in introducing greener mobility, as well as the use of renewable energy and decreasing harmful emissions.

The meeting was attended by Bertrand Thiebaut, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim Motors, Yousuf Al Raeesi, Director of Government Affairs & Health, Safety, Security and Environment at Al-Futtaim Motors, as well as other dignitaries from the Ajman Municipality and Planning Department, and other senior officials from both entities.

The four-door Toyota Mirai is the world’s first mass-produced hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, with performance that competes with traditional internal combustion engines, in addition to being the only zero emissions vehicle on the market capable of exceeding 500 KM on a full tank.

“As the leader in sustainable mobility in the UAE, we have a responsibility in leading the charge for greener motoring. By introducing zero-emissions technology such as FCV, as well as the current fleet of Toyota and Lexus hybrid vehicles, we are certain that we will be able to contribute positively to the environment, in turn creating a cleaner atmosphere,” said Thiebaut.

Al-Futtaim Motors has paved the way for sustainable mobility in the UAE with the introduction of Lexus hybrid vehicles more than seven years ago, becoming the largest distributor of environmentally friendly vehicles in the country, offering customers a host of Lexus hybrid vehicles including the LS, GS, RX and CT, as well as the Toyota Prius.
