Toyota plans to begin demonstration testing of what it says is the world's first fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) mobile clinic that uses hydrogen to generate electricity.

The company will test the effectiveness of a commercial fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) in parts of the world that require mobile medical help. Toyota says that the FCEV could also help reduce CO2 emissions to help prevent global warming.

Toyota has developed the FCEV mobile clinic based on its composite Coaster minibus, with the power source using the Toyota fuel cell system employed by the company’s Mirai FCEV.
