GM Fuel Cell Vehicles Reach 3 Million Mile Fleet Milestone

GM passes a major fleet milestone.
The Chevrolet Equinox makes up most of GM’s fleet of fuel cell cars.

General Motors’ fleet of fuel cell vehicles have taken one giant leap forward in the world of green cars after passing the 3 million miles of hydrogen-power real-world driving. This fleet milestone has helped GM avoid using 157,894 gallons of gasoline consumption by using only hydrogen to power these vehicles.

The fleet is exclusively made up of Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell vehicles, which are part of the American carmaker’s 119-vehicle Project Driveway campaign, which was created in 2007. Over the course of the last seven years, more than 5,000 drivers have provided GM with feedback on the practicality and performance of fuel cell technology.

“Hydrogen fuel cell technology is an important part of GM’s advanced propulsion portfolio and we continue to make substantial progress in furthering this technology,” said Charlie Freese, executive director of GM’s global fuel cell engineering activities. “These vehicles have operated through seven full winters and a wide range of environmental conditions, proving that fuel cells can meet the demands of real-world drivers.”

Currently, GM is the leader in fuel cell technology, which is shown in two different fuel cell-related collaborations. GM and Honda are working together to produce next-generation fuel cell and hydrogen storage systems, while also looking to advance refueling infrastructure. Along with this partnership, GM has also opened a new Fuel Cell Development Laboratory in Pontiac, Michigan to test the fuel cell technology.
