Sept. 28-30 & Oct. 3 – Northeast Region Hydrogen Station Rally
September 27, 2011 3:13 pm ET
General Motors in the Northeast Region will kick-off their Hydrogen Station Rally – a demonstration of the “here and now” in hydrogen vehicle fueling infrastructure.
The company has been working on the development of hydrogen powered fuel cell transportation under a program supported by the Department of Energy. These vehicles are one of the many energy independent and petroleum-free technologies in the GM portfolio. A fuel cell vehicle is a type of electric car, but unlike the Volt that uses gasoline to help recharge the battery when its depleted, a fuel cell vehicle uses hydrogen to provide the electricity.
To demonstrate the progress on both the vehicle and hydrogen refueling side, join GM as they drive a fuel cell powered Chevrolet from Washington, D.C. to Boston, Mass. The drive begins early Wednesday, September 28 and ends later on Friday, September 30.
Along the way we will stop at a number of existing hydrogen fueling stations for fuel and to talk about GM’s Advanced Technology strategy.
