Platinum-based hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) received a major boost on Wednesday with the announcement of an initiative to deploy new fleets of zero-emission FCEV taxis in Europe. With nearly 500 000 pilot project passenger journeys across six million kilometres taking place as part of a pilot project that began in 2023, a strong thumbs up is now being given to FCEVs, which are particularly well suited to vehicle fleets such as taxis and buses.
