GM to showcase fuel cell vehicles at California rally
Sacramento, California – Hydrogen-powered fuel cell technologies designed for consumer use, and for U.S. military non-tactical vehicle applications, will be demonstrated by General Motors and the U.S. Army as part of a rolling fuel cell vehicle convoy featured during the 2005 California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP) Road Rally, Sept. 29 – Oct. 1.
A modified Chevrolet Silverado, equipped with two 94-kilowatt fuel cell stacks fueled by hydrogen, and GM’s HydroGen3 fuel cell minivan will be among several fuel cell vehicles featured during CaFCP member caravans, educational displays and test-drive opportunities in several Sacramento and San Francisco Bay Area communities.
“Road Rally 2005: Fueling the Future” will bring nearly 20 hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, a hydrogen reformer, a mobile hydrogen refueller and numerous other technologies to Sacramento, Davis, Martinez, Berkeley, Oakland, San Jose, San Carlos and San Francisco. During the three-day event, the general public will have an opportunity to test drive these vehicles, watch them refuel and learn about hydrogen production.
