Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell Passes 1 Million Miles

No Gasoline or Tailpipe Pollution in Reaching Unprecedented Milestone

The Chevrolet Equinox fuel cell electric vehicles passed 1 million miles of gasoline and tailpipe pollution-free driving by homemakers, accountants, computer game designers and others using the vehicles every day in real-world conditions.

More than 50,000 gallons of gasoline have been saved so far in the fuel cell Equinox, more than 100 of which are part of the largest consumer fuel cell demonstration fleet in the world. The fuel cell electric Equinox runs on electricity created by an on-board fuel cell stack. The only emissions are wisps of water vapor.

Reinventing the Automobile with Fuel Cell Technology...

GM has a history of momentous technological breakthroughs — including hydrogen fuel cell power. General Motors has established extensive hydrogen fuel cell research and development facilities both in the U.S. and Europe.

In New York City, Washington, D.C. and southern California GM has taken the next step towards mass produced fuel cell vehicles. Real people in the real world are driving a Chevy Equinox fuel cell vehicle and enjoying instantaneous torque, smooth acceleration, and quiet performance from a vehicle that will go nearly 150 miles per fill-up,(1) and reach a top speed of 100 mph. Green Car Journal has given the Chevy Equinox Fuel Cell its Green Car Vision Award®.(2) The Equinox Fuel Cell won the award over several nominees, including the Honda FCX Clarity and Toyota Prius Plug-In. GM has taken the technology of tomorrow and put it to use today.
