First VIP guests travel to City Hall with fuel cell electric taxi

After years in planning and development, and weeks of preparation to make sure the fuel cell electric taxis are in tip-top condition, we had our first VIP passengers on Friday, ahead of the Opening Ceremony.

Kit Malthouse, Deputy Mayor of London for Business and Enterprise and Chair of the London Hydrogen Partnership hailed our zero emissions fuel cell electric taxi for its first job of the day, travelling from City Hall to Guildhall.

Kit (second from the right) was extremely enthusiastic and eager to make the first journey in the fuel cell electric taxi, describing the taxi as a smooth and quiet ride. Kit was travelling with Munira Mirza, Deputy Mayor for Education and Culture (centre) and other Greater London Authority colleagues to attend a pre-Olympics opening event ceremony at Guildhall.

Kit and Munira were introduced to the taxi by Dennis Hayter (second from left), VP of Business Development at Intelligent Energy (the company which has provided fuel cell systems and led development of the taxis), who explained how the fuel cell electric taxis work.
