General Motors recently committed to building the world's largest fuel cell vehicle fleet by announcing its next-generation fuel cell vehicle-the Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell. GM will build more than 100 Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell vehicles and will begin placing them with customers in the fall of 2007, as part of a comprehensive deployment plan dubbed Project Driveway.

Designed to gain comprehensive details on all aspects of the customer experience, Project Driveway constitutes the first meaningful market test of fuel cell vehicles. A variety of drivers, in differing driving environments, will operate these vehicles and refuel with hydrogen in three geographic areas: California, the New York metropolitan area and Washington, D.C.

Enabled by GM's fourth-generation fuel cell propulsion system, the Equinox Fuel Cell is a fully-functional crossover vehicle, engineered for 50,000 miles of life. More information is available at www.gm.com.
