Met police team up with Toyota to have hydrogen fuel cell police car fleet

The Metropolitan Police Service has joined forces with Toyota to develop the largest hydrogen fuel cell police fleet in the world, with 11 examples of the Toyota Mirai.

The first of the hydrogen-powered saloons have already joined the fleet, with the help of a fuel cell and hydrogen grant allowing the move to be feasible, as the Mirai costs an expensive £66,000 new, thanks to the complex technology fitted to them.
