Dubai, United Arab Emirates, January 10, 2017: Al-Futtaim Motors, leader in sustainable mobility and exclusive distributor of Toyota and Lexus in the UAE, will be taking part in the upcoming Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, the largest gathering on sustainability in the Middle East, and a significant platform for international dialogue and cooperation, as the Official Transport Partner of the exhibition, set to be held on 12-21 January, 2017, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) in Abu Dhabi.
“Our message for many years has been that hybrid is the immediately available answer to the country’s sustainable mobility question. Late last year, we announced our intention to drive the implementation of new sustainable technologies in the UAE’s motoring market and revealed our plans to start testing Toyota’s latest technology, the Fuel Cell Vehicle in the UAE. Since then, the pilot consisting of testing the Toyota Mirai FCV has kicked-off successfully, cementing our commitment towards a better and cleaner tomorrow,” said Bertrand Thiebaut, Senior Managing Director, Al-Futtaim Motors.
“The Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week is an excellent platform for us to showcase the Fuel Cell Vehicle technology as well as our hybrid transport solutions for government, fleet and individuals as we continue to provide sustainable solutions that we believe are imperative in the government’s efforts in creating a greener environment,” he added.
Al-Futtaim Motors will be showcasing the zero-emission hydrogen-powered Toyota Mirai at its stand, as well as a model hydrogen filling station, similar to the ones being built by Air Liquide, Al-Futtaim Motors’ partner in the pilot and one of the most established suppliers of hydrogen stations in the world, in addition to its latest hybrid models, giving visitors the opportunity to witness current and future sustainable transport options from Toyota and Lexus.
