It's just one out of 220,000 US Postal Service vehicles, but the hydrogen-powered fuel-cell car now being used in Irvine, California, represents the agency's quest to reduce its petroleum appetite.
The USPS station in Irvine is the first in the United States to test drive a Chevrolet Equinox as part of General Motors' Project Driveway, which puts more than 100 fuel-cell vehicles in the hands of average drivers as part of a large-scale market test.
