Want to Test Drive a Hydrogen Powered Car? GM’s “Project Driveway” Looking For Drivers
Testing the New Equinox Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle
GM’s new Equinox hydrogen fuel cell electric cars are on the road. Well, one hundred of them are, and you can apply to become a test driver for three months.
The Chevy Equinox Fuel Cell has been honored with the Green Car Journal’s Green Car Vision Award, the first time the magazine has recognized a limited-production vehicle for its forward-thinking technologies. “Project Driveway” is the first large-scale market test of fuel cell vehicles with real drivers.
If you live or work in metropolitan New York City; Washington, D.C.; or southern California, you may be eligible to test-drive an Equinox Fuel Cell vehicle. You must be at least 21 years of age, a U.S. citizen and have a valid driver’s license. If you qualify, General Motors will provide the fuel, maintenance, insurance, OnStar service and a support team for a three month period. You drive what appears to be a very cool car, and give your feedback.
