Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Mobile Clinic
Mar. 31, 2021Japanese Red Cross Kumamoto Hospital and Toyota to Begin Utilization Demonstration of the World's First Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Mobile Clinic
Japanese Red Cross Kumamoto Hospital and Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) have agreed to begin demonstration testing of the world's first fuel cell electric vehicle mobile clinic (FCEV mobile clinic) that uses hydrogen to generate electricity, by the summer of 2021. The organizations aim to use this demonstration testing to confirm the effectiveness of a commercial fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) in areas of medicine and disaster countermeasures, and to achieve carbon neutrality. By building an operational model of an FCEV mobile clinic for utilization during normal times and times of disaster, they will also contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions to help prevent global warming.
