    Aberdeen Home to Scotland’s First Hydrogen Taxi

    Scotland’s first all hydrogen taxi is set to take to the road in Aberdeen, following the rollout of the cities pioneering hydrogen powered bus fleet.

    The hydrogen powered Hyundai ix35 will be operated by Aberdeen Taxis on a one-year trial basis, after Aberdeen City Council granted the vehicle a private hire license in September. The taxi was funded by the Scottish Government’s Transport Scotland agency, with the hope of encouraging other cities and private hire firms to consider alternative fuel.

    Speaking about the news, Scottish Transport minister Humza Yousaf said:  “This announcement reflects our ambitions to phase out the need for new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2032. I’m delighted that Scotland’s first hydrogen taxi will be transporting customers in Aberdeen and showcasing the benefits that ultra-low emission hydrogen vehicles can bring.”

    The news is just the latest green development for Aberdeen, a city fast becoming known for its adoption of alternative fuel. Alongside  being home to Europe’s first all hydrogen bus fleet, Aberdeen is also home to  9 hydrogen powered vehicles owned by the city council and local authorities, and three all hydrogen vehicles operated by car club Co-Wheels.

    Yvonna Alan of Aberdeen City Council commented that the use of the vehicle by a private hire firm will “play a part in improving the air quality of our city”, and that its adoption by a private hire firm will allow Aberdeen’s residents “the opportunity to […] broaden [their] understanding of the technology”.

    In addition, Aberdeen Taxis director Chris Douglas said: “We believe the smoothness and quietness of the hydrogen vehicle will be appreciated by not only drivers but also our passengers [and] that the environmental benefits of running pure hydrogen and electric vehicles will make a real difference for the people of Aberdeen.”
