H2 Moves Scandinavia have today issued a press release to officially  launch the European Hydrogen Road Tour!

During the ‘Let Hydrogen Move You’ event  which coincided with the EHA Annual General Assembly last month H2moves Scandinavia announced that its’  “ European Hydrogen Road Tour” will be held in September and October of this year.The tour  will kick off  in Hamburg on 13 September and make its way across France, Italy, UK and finishing in Denmark  on 10 October.  This tour will bring to the general public an opportunity to test drive these cars with only water coming out of the exhaust pipe. The FCEVs they will experience are on a par with today’s cars but with much less noise and emissions.

The European Hydrogen Road Tour 2012 is part of H2moves Scandinavia, one of several projects in the Joint Technology Initiative on Hydrogen & Fuel Cells (FCH JU) which is funded by the European Commission and the European Industry. The European Hydrogen Road Tour 2012 will with seminars and Ride & Drive events reach out to politicians, industry, press and public within six European regions.

The message is clear: Hydrogen vehicles are already here – ready for mass production from 2014-2015 onwards. But there is still a significant need for infrastructure build-up.

For the European Hydrogen Road Tour 2012, car manufacturers and infrastructure organizations, together with other related industry and local stakeholders were invited to join the journey in building a strong Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles partnership in Europe!

Major car manufacturers have devoted a significant amount of resources towards developing hydrogen powered Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) that will be mass produced in a few years such as Daimler, Honda, Hyundai and Toyota – along the European Hydrogen Road Tour 2012.

The European Hydrogen Road Tour 2012 is part of a project called H2moves Scandinavia. The project is the first European Lighthouse Project for hydrogen, funded by the European Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking programme, launched by the European Commission and European industry.
