Toyota Canada and Transition Énergétique Québec (TEQ) discuss MOU for hydrogen infrastructure.
“We’re happy to be working with Transition Énergétique Québec to determine the requirements for the introduction of hydrogen infrastructure,” said Stephen Beatty, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “Our ultimate goal is to offer hydrogen fuel cell technology to Quebec drivers, making a significant contribution to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.”
Toyota and the Quebec Government share a common goal – to reduce the carbon emissions of vehicles driven by Quebec drivers – and they are collaborating to make this a reality.
Toyota’s Chairman, Takeshi Uchiyamada, announced that Toyota Canada’s first hydrogen fueling and service facility will be built at its Québec zone office as a first step in the development of hydrogen fueling infrastructure in the province. Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles offer emissions-free driving without interrupting driver habits, like quick refueling and driving long distances free of range anxiety.
Toyota has already been working hard to promote greenhouse-gas-friendly technology in the province, including the recent exclusive Québec introduction of the new Toyota Prius Prime, the company’s plug-in hybrid electric vehicle.
“The energy transition in Quebec is definitely under way,” added Minister Arcand. “We are being proactive to offer the choice to consumers just as we committed to do in our 2030 energy policy. I am delighted that such a major player as Toyota has chosen Quebec as the site for setting up facilities for new technologies that will help us achieve our objectives in reducing petroleum-product consumption as well as greenhouse-gas emissions.”
