Abu Dhabi is ushering in a new era of eco-friendly transportation with the launch of its first hydrogen-powered smart taxi, a groundbreaking initiative led by Tawasul Transport, a prominent transport company. In collaboration with ADNOC, the Integrated Transport Center (ITC), and Al Futtaim Motors, this venture aims to revolutionize urban mobility sustainably.
Tawasul Transport and Al Futtaim Motors will contribute crucial operational data, covering metrics such as kilometers driven, green hydrogen consumption, operating hours, and clean refueling procedures. This transparent, data-driven approach not only enhances operational efficiency but also accelerates the integration of innovative and sustainable transport solutions.
The cutting-edge Toyota Mirai, fueled by hydrogen, promises a 100% electric driving experience with unparalleled efficiency and zero emissions, aligning with Toyota’s commitment to carbon neutrality and creating sustainable mobility solutions for all.
The hydrogen-powered taxis will refuel at Abu Dhabi’s first high-speed green hydrogen pilot refueling station, situated at Masdar City and operated by ADNOC Distribution.
This collaboration underscores the shared commitment of the involved companies to achieving high-energy efficiency and fostering a sustainable transport sector in Abu Dhabi. They play a pivotal role in optimizing the utilization of green-hydrogen-powered taxis.

He stated that this commitment goes beyond eco-friendly transportation, paving the way for a cleaner and greener tomorrow. Tawasul’s vision extends to a world where mobility harmonizes with the environment, and these green hydrogen taxis represent the first step toward realizing this bold vision.
