Zero-emission Vehicle Innovator Wisdom Motor brings the Gulf nations’ first 12-meter Hydrogen City Bus in new cooperation to support the UAE’s green mobility agenda

  • Written by The Post

Under this significant cooperation, Wisdom Motor joins other international brands to support ITC's Green Bus Assessment Programme contributing towards the region's proactive efforts to embrace sustainability.


Mr. Cliff Zhang, Chairman of the board of directors of Wisdom Motor and Chairman of Templewater (the company's investor), commented: "We are proud to partner with the ITC to bring our cutting-edge technology and customised hydrogen-powered vehicles to Abu Dhabi. This cooperation not only reinforces the quality and competitiveness of Wisdom Motor, but it is also a significant milestone for our company in entering the GCC market by bringing in the first 12-Meter Hydrogen City Bus into the region, while reaffirming our commitment to promoting sustainable mobility solutions worldwide. As a relatively young company, we are excited to join other global providers in contributing to the UAE's ambitious sustainability vision, and we look forward to expanding our presence in this region.

Mr Zhang, added, "This landmark cooperation is an example of how young companies can drive positive change in the world. As governments and businesses join hands to champion sustainability initiatives, I believe Wisdom Motor's technology and innovative approach will play a critical role in reshaping our zero-emission future."

"The success of the UAE hydrogen-powered bus project perfectly demonstrates Hong Kong's capability to become a center for innovation and technology and reflects the boundless potential of the organic integration between the Mainland and Hong Kong. The Special Administrative Region government is planning to develop the Northern Metropolis into an innovative technology hub, and we believe that with its world-class public transportation system, Hong Kong is also well-positioned to become an international leader in zero-emission transportation technologies. We hope to continue collaborating with the government to build a new energy transportation industry chain in Hong Kong, ultimately creating hydrogen-powered vehicles and hydrogen refueling stations developed and manufactured in Hong Kong. We aim to export Hong Kong's top-tier new energy transportation products to countries along the Belt and Road and around the world, becoming a 'hydrogen' dynamo for Hong Kong's economy. Hydrogen energy technology is an important field in the global new energy sector, and we believe Hong Kong has the capacity to become a center for hydrogen energy technology in Asia, supporting the country's strategic goals in this domain."
