Virgin Atlantic to Use Fuel Cell Cars for Shuttling VIPs

March 14, 2008

NEW YORK --- Virgin Atlantic Airways recently unveiled plans to start using General Motors fuel cell cars as limousines for VIP passengers in the U.S., Reuters reported.

Virgin founder Richard Branson said earlier this month the airline will add GM's Chevrolet Equinox hydrogen fuel cell cars into Virgin's limousine fleet in Los Angeles. The vehicles will ferry first-class passengers to and from the airport. The cars will be added to the airline's New York limo fleet later this year.

GM hopes to have its Chevrolet Equinox fuel cell vehicles in U.S. showrooms by 2012. The cars run on hydrogen and emit only water vapor.
