As sponsors of the event, both Groups will showcase this service by providing visitors with the new generation of Toyota Mirai shuttles powered by hydrogen produced by Air Liquide.
This will allow visitors to travel between three main areas of the event: the Charléty stadium, the Hôtel de Ville, and the Villette, enabling passengers to discover artwork installations while demonstrating low-carbon hydrogen technology.
“By providing sustainable mobility for Nuit Blanche, a major event in the cultural life of Paris, Air Liquide is reiterating its ambition to provide society with tangible solutions that address both the climate emergency and mobility needs,” commented Matthieu Giard, Vice President, Member of Air Liquide’s Executive Committee, supervising hydrogen activity.
In addition to showcasing their respective technology, Air Liquide will broadcast its special programme ‘Generation Hydrogene’ to educate the public about hydrogen and the role it will play in the energy transition.
By focusing on expanding its range of environmentally friendly mobility solutions to encompass not just cars, but trains, buses and boats, Toyota hopes to promote the advent of a ‘zero-emission’ world.
Stating that the company champions a ‘low-carbon, inclusive and responsible society’, Frank Marotte, President, CEO, Toyota France, added, “That is why we aim to achieve carbon neutrality in Europe by 2030.”
“Providing access to the Toyota Mirai, a zero-emission hydrogen vehicle, is a wonderful example of our investment in a better world.”
The event is set to take place during the night of October 1st, with Air Liquide’s ‘Generation Hydrogen scheduled to broadcast on its website on September 28th.
