TONAWANDA, N.Y. (AP) - General Motors envisions a "hydrogen highway" across New York that would allow fuel-cell cars now under development to drive from one end of the state to the other.
GM officials are at the Tonawanda engine plant near Buffalo with two hydrogen-powered Chevrolet Equinox vehicles to demonstrate the emerging technology.
The automaker has 100 test vehicles on the road. The cars use no gasoline and produce no harmful emissions.
GM is working with state energy officials to develop hydrogen filling stations across the state, in hopes they'll be in place before widespread production of fuel-cell vehicles begins in the next five or six years.
