The city of Oviedo is running a three-month trial of a Caetano hydrogen-powered bus. The Caetano H2.CityGold will be tested in regular passenger traffic on different lines. Oviedo joins other European cities, including Madrid, London, Paris and Dublin, which have also tested Caetano hydrogen-powered buses.
“It is an honour for Caetano to have its H2.CityGold bus as the first hydrogen-powered bus to be tested in Oviedo,” says Kohei Umeno, chief commercial officer, CaetanoBus. “Our target is to start H2 bus operation from 2022 and we are working together with municipalities and partners to achieve a zero emission society.”
CaetanoBus, part of Toyota Caetano Portugal and Mitsui & Co, is based in Portugal. It is also the manufacturer of COBUS, the market leader in airport bus transportation.
