(autoinsidernews) - General Motors has committed to building the world's largest fuel cell vehicle fleet with last months announcement of its next-generation fuel cell vehicle the Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell. GM will build more than 100 Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell vehicles and will place them with drivers around the world beginning in the fall of 2007, reports Trend.
The project, called Project Driveway, is the first meaningful market test of fuel cell vehicles in the world. The vehicles will be built by GM Canada in Oshawa. GM will select a variety of drivers to operate these vehicles in three geographic areas: California, the New York metropolitan area and Washington D.C. GM's targeted test areas are limited by the availability of hydrogen fueling stations. Each driver will have the vehicle from three to 30 months.
