    GM Launches Project Driveway

    "GM has launched Project Driveway—the first large-scale consumer market test of fuel cell electric vehicles anywhere. Under Project Driveway, GM will temporarily deploy more than 100 Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell electric vehicles among selected customers in suburban Los Angeles, New York City and Washington, D.C."

    http://www.greencarcongress.com/2007...-pro.html#more

    This is an excelent article. GM is using the Gen 4 fuel cell in these vehicles which is now older tech. But they are using the infromation from consumers to refine electric systems for the E-flex system.

    One other thing I found that looks very cool is the instrument cluster. Instead of a tach they have a power output. It also shows regen power.

    Ha that power gauge is too cool! I love that they indicate the rengeration power. I'd be slamming on the brakes all the time just to peg the dial!

    Hey, if you brake all the time can you not generate enough power so that you never need to recharge...?

    If I keep my foot on the brake of my current car I don't need any gas in it either, I just sit there.

    That power gauge is really cool, I agree! I'd love to have the opportunity to be part of this program, too bad I don't stand a chance.

    Sure you can, as long as you are always traveling down hill.

    That gauge cluster is bad ass. It works almost like an efficiency gauge. Keep it at zero and you've got a long way to go.

    I am hoping that electric drive cars all start to use kW instead of horsepower to indicate the amount of power the vehicle has. Just one more step towards my dream of the U.S. adopting the metric system.

    A great dream but I fear we'll never get there. The metric system is so much simpler and easier to work with.

    This is a neat promotion. Is the reason why it's only in certain areas have this available is because of lack of hydrogen fill-up stations?
