Largest Real World Test of Fuel Cell Cars Celebrates One Millionth MileOver the last two years a fleet of hydrogen fuel-cell powered vehicles have been test driven by everyday people. Participants in Project Driveway were given the opportunity to drive the gas-free, emissions-free Chevrolet Equinox wherever they wanted and recently reached the millionth mile mark. To celebrate the millionth mile, current and former drivers came together to share their experience and talk about the future of hydrogen. In exchange for the two months of free gas and insurance, the drivers provided feedback to engineers on the Equinox. Customer comments help the automaker improve the fuel cell experience and in some cases modify the vehicle, bringing it one step closer to reality.Several automakers have said that they will have hydrogen powered vehicles ready for market by 2015.
