From Tech-On!:

Suzuki Motor Corp's Burgman Fuel Cell Scooter, which is being tested in the UK, became the world's first fuel-cell electric vehicle to earn Whole Vehicle Type Approval (WVTA).

To sell a vehicle in Europe, it is necessary to receive certification from each member nation of the European Union. But, by earning WVTA, it becomes possible to sell a vehicle in all of the member nations.

In collaboration with the UK-based Intelligent Energy Ltd, Suzuki has been participating in the field test that is for fuel-cell electric vehicles and organized by Technology Strategy Board (TSB), a government organization that promotes technological development in the UK, since February 2010.
