QCOSTARIA – Purdy Motors says it will in three years bring to Costa Rica the first hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle. Meanwhile, the Ministry of the Environment (Ministerio de Ambiente) and the AD Astra Rocket company are working on setting up hydrogen fuel stations.

Javier Quiros, general manager of Purdy Motors, the exclusive franchisee of Toyota vehicles in the country, said on the radio program, Nuestra Voz, Toyota has always given the country priority in releasing new vehicles with green technology as it did with the Prius hybrid electric car.

The first hydrogen powered car is the Toyota Mirai, launched this year, the company planning to build 700 vehicles for global sales during 2015. Sales in Japan began on 15 December 2014 at a price of ~US$57.400 dollars.

Toyota expects to sell some 3.000 units in 2017, according to El Mundo, a Spanish publication that test drove the Mirai in January.

According to Quiros, to import the Mirai in 2018, a hydrogen station is required, and that Purdy Motors is working with the Environment ministry and Ad Astra to that end.

The Prius and the new hydrogen cars offer a new opportunity for the country to reduce pollution, carbon emissions and achieve its goal of carbon neutrality by 2021.
