Test Driving the Fuel Cell Equinox
We recently had the chance to drive a Chevy Equinox hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicle and a Honda Civic powered by natural gas.
It is noteworthy that GM will place about 100 of the fuel cell-powered vehicles in the hands of consumers to see how they perform, and how well they are accepted. GM engineers are quick to note that this is a fourth generation fuel cell stack, and they are hard at work on generation five. So this is serious stuff at GM, as it is at other automakers.
We were most impressed by the Equinox, but feel our readers should have a quick reality check here. You will not be able to go down to the Chevy garage any time soon and buy a fuel cell vehicle. There is the need for a lot more development work along with the establishment of a nationwide network of outlets that sell hydrogen.
