The Mirai has been acquired with support from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV), Hydrogen Mobility Europe (H2 ME) and the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCHJU).

The university will use the Mirai both on the road, operating between its London campuses, and as a research resource in its work with the UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell SUPERGEN Hub.

“We’re committed to advancing both sustainable road transport and hydrogen technologies and are delighted to host a car that helps mitigate climate change, improves local air quality and helps meet international energy and environmental policy goals.”
