Microcab Industries has pioneered the design of lean weight hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, specifically designed to improve air quality, with zero emissions at point of use. They are extremely efficient, supporting the global sustainability agenda as resources become more scarce.

As part of the EcoIsland project with ITM Power and Arcola Energy, Microcab tours the Isle of Wight, stopping at famous landmarks and six primary schools where the kids get their first sight of a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.
ITM Power is launching its M1 hydrogen refuelling station, funded by Innovate UK, at the Advanced Manufacturing Park on Thursday, September 17.
The UK built Microcab H2EV will be on show, alongside the Toyota Mirai and Hyundai FCV ix35.
The plant, just off the M1 in Rotherham, will be producing green hydrogen on site.
“Microcab supports the growth of the hydrogen infrastructure and is particularly encouraged by the green production method at this site.” comments John Jostins at Microcab.
The event will be held from 10:00 to 15:00 (BST).

Summer in the city can be pretty dismal given the high levels of pollution in the air from vehicle emissions. However, there is a solution in development, with a new, light, delivery van that is not only aiming to be more lung-friendly, but also wants to make use of food waste. Produce Business UK finds out more ….

A paper assessing the efficiency of the Microcab H2EV vehicle was delivered at the European Electric Vehicle Conference in Bruxelles, 3-5 December 2014. There’s an interesting chart on P10 showing Well to Wheel greenhouse gas emissions for a range of vehicles. You can see there that the H2EV scores highly on efficiency due partly to its relatively low mass.
