First Hydrogen to Host Inaugural Track Event for Its Fuel Cell EVs

First Hydrogen Corp. (TSXV: FHYD) (OTC: FHYDF) (FSE: FIT) announced that it will be hosting its first ever track day for major UK fleet managers to demonstrate its unique hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (FCEV).

The event, which will take place at the end of October, will also be a test drive for the First Hydrogen’s FCEVs on the track at HORIBA MIRA, UK. All attendees will get hands-on access to the first-of-their-kind 3.5-tonne FCEV and the chance to drive them. They will also gain knowledge on how practical it would be to introduce the FCEV into their own fleets. 

This invitation-only event targets major UK LCV fleet operators including members of the UK Aggregated Hydrogen Freight Consortium (AHFC) that promotes ramping up commercialization of FCEVs and hydrogen refueling infrastructure. 

First Hydrogen’s FCEV has already been trialed by SSE and Rivus, with over 15 others on the waiting list to test the vehicle in their fleets. The inaugural track allows the company to showcase its FCEV’s unmatched capabilities to several organizations in a day. 

That includes an impressive range of over 630km on a single refueling, ease of driving, and carrying huge payloads without trading off performance. 

First Hydrogen Automotive CEO, Steve Gill, remarked that their goal for the event is for “attending fleet managers and operational specialists to leave with a clearer view on the capabilities of First Hydrogen’s FCEVs which will inform decision making on the purchase of zero emissions fleets”.

If the event turns out a success, First Hydrogen aims to take their FCEV into Europe and North America in similar track events.
