Dubai Police tests zero-emissions Toyota Mirai and welcomes its first Lexus ES hybrid to the fleet

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, May 2, 2017: Al-Futtaim Motors, exclusive distributor of Toyota, Lexus, Hino and Toyota Material Handling Equipment and leader in sustainable mobility in the UAE, have joined Dubai Police in reinforcing both organizations' support for UAE Vision 2021's sustainable environment initiatives, by test driving Toyota's zero-emission Fuel Cell technology in the form of the hydrogen-powered Fuel Cell Toyota Mirai. 

Al-Futtaim Motors also handed over the first Lexus ES 350 hybrid, which will help Dubai Police spread awareness of greener transport solutions, while aiding its efforts in more sustainable mobility.

Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Merri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, said: “The introduction of environmentally friendly vehicles into our patrol fleet is important as the Force aims to adopt more sustainable energy sources, including renewable energy, as well as reducing carbon emissions that are harmful to the environment.' 

“The General HQ has developed many initiatives to protect natural environments, such as the planting of mangrove trees in the Ras Al Khor area, which has become a globally recognized nature reserve, as well as many initiatives to combat air pollution by reducing traffic congestion and introducing regulations for the maintenance of vehicles to reduce harmful emissions.”

Other initiatives include combating marine pollution with new and advanced equipment and boats, in addition to the initiative of planting one million trees in Dubai, and the introduction of green vehicles cars to serve the employees and visitors at the General HQ, and introducing green vehicles to the Dubai Police fleet.

Unlike battery-powered electric vehicles, the four-door mid-size electric sedan with performance that fully competes with traditional internal combustion engines, Toyota Mirai, is not recharged by plugging it into an electricity grid, but creates electricity using hydrogen, enabling the car to run up to 500km+.

For more than seven years, Lexus has paved the path for hybrid transport in the UAE, and now offers the largest choice of hybrid vehicles to consumers and businesses, through Lexus LS, GS, RX, and CT. The Lexus ES has newly joined the fold in a pilot phase, reinforcing Al-Futtaim Motors' position as leader in sustainable mobility, with concrete contribution to a cleaner and more sustainable motoring in the country.
