Al-Futtaim Motors and Dubai Police one step closer to UAE Vision 2021’s sustainability targets

  • Dubai Police tests zero-emissions Toyota Mirai and welcomes its first Lexus ES hybrid to the fleet

Al-Futtaim Motors, exclusive distributor of Toyota, Lexus, Hino and Toyota Material Handling Equipment and leader in sustainable mobility in the UAE, have joined Dubai Police in reinforcing both organizations’ support for UAE Vision 2021’s sustainable environment initiatives, by test driving Toyota’s zero-emission Fuel Cell technology in the form of the hydrogen-powered Fuel Cell Toyota Mirai.

Al-Futtaim Motors also handed over the first Lexus ES 350 hybrid, which will help Dubai Police spread awareness of greener transport solutions, while aiding its efforts in more sustainable mobility.

Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Merri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, said: “The introduction of environmentally friendly vehicles into our patrol fleet is important as the Force aims to adopt more sustainable energy sources, including renewable energy, as well as reducing carbon emissions that are harmful to the environment.”

“The General HQ has developed many initiatives to protect natural environments, such as the planting of mangrove trees in the Ras Al Khor area, which has become a globally recognized nature reserve, as well as many initiatives to combat air pollution by reducing traffic congestion and introducing regulations for the maintenance of vehicles to reduce harmful emissions.”
