Co-Wheels Adds Hydrogen Vehicles to Carsharing Program

The Aberdeen City Council has added two hydrogen fuel-cell Hyundai SUVs to its carsharing program, according to a report by FleetNews.

Operated by Co-Wheels, the new hydrogen vehicles would join Aberdeen City Council’s carsharing program, which also features electric vehicles.

“With these cars, we are taking things to the next level, moving ever closer to becoming a world-leading renewables city and securing a hydrogen economy in Aberdeen, presenting tangible opportunities to the energy industry,” Councillor Barney Crockett, lead member for hydrogen, told FleetNews.

Once in operation, the Hyundai hydrogen SUVs will be fueled using locally-produced hydrogen, says the report. Aberdeen also operates a fleet of hydrogen-powered buses.

"Co-Wheels has always pioneered cleaner and greener travel options, and these hydrogen-powered cars are another step toward improving air quality and reducing CO2 emissions in the city,” Richard Falconer, managing director of Co-Wheels, told FleetNews.
