Sharjah Police tests Toyota's zero-emission Fuel Cell technology and receives 127 new Toyota Vehicles

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, May 2, 2017: Al-Futtaim Motors, leader in sustainable mobility and exclusive distributor of Toyota in the UAE, has handed over 127 Toyota vehicles to Sharjah Police, cementing the long-term partnership between the two entities. Al-Futtaim Motors also supported Sharjah Police in their plans to drive the 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.

Unlike battery-powered electric vehicles, Mirai, a hydrogen-powered Fuel Cell Electric vehicle, is driven by an electric motor, but instead of being powered by a battery, it creates electricity through an onboard Fuel Cell stack, using oxygen from the air with the stored hydrogen to power the car, resulting in the release of water instead of CO2 as a byproduct. 

The handover, which took place at the Sharjah Police Headquarters, was attended by Saud Abbasi, Managing Director of Toyota at Al-Futtaim Motors, Yousuf Al Raeesi, Director of Government Affairs &Health, Safety, Security and Environment at Al-Futtaim Motors, as well as Brigadier Saif Al Zari Al Shamsi, General Commander of Sharjah Police, Brigadier Abdullah Mubarak bin Amer, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Sharjah Police, Brigadier Arif Mohammed Al Sharif, Director General of Human Resources and Support Services Department, Colonel Ali Rahma Al Owais, Director of Support Services Department among other senior officials from both bodies.

“Al-Futtaim Motors has long enjoyed an excellent business relationship with Sharjah Police and today we are happy that we're extending our partnership with the addition of a host of 127 Toyota vehicles to the Sharjah Police fleet. As the leading automotive distributor in the UAE, we pride ourselves on delivering not just Quality, Durability and Reliability, but also premium after sales services to our government partners,” said Abbasi. 
He detailed the many advantages of Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV) compared to battery-powered electric cars, mainly in relation to fuel economy and driving range, fueling time and environmental impact.

The 127 vehicles include the powerful Prado, the bold new Camry, the expectations challenging Corolla, the versatile Hiace and the rugged and dominant Land Cruiser Pickup.
