GM Begins Testing Production-Intent Fuel Cell
Is the automotive market ready for fuel cell vehicles? Is it even ready for electric vehicles?
In both cases GM thinks the answer is "yes" and it is leading the charge to deploy these technologies. The 2011 Chevy Volt, set to launch later this year, will be the first mass market electric vehicle to be sold in the U.S. (past EVs saw limited distribution). And GM announced today that it was beginning testing of production-intent fuel cells in preparation for a 2015 fuel cell (FC) vehicle launch.
In 2008, we tested GM's Equinox FC vehicles on the roads of Las Vegas. Since then the fleet has logged the most miles of any fuel cell fleet GM is aware of -- 1.3 million everyday miles in total.
