GM Sets Fuel Cell Vehicle Distance Record
Halfway through a 10,000 kilometer (6,200 mile) run across Europe, a General Motors Corp. vehicle has established a new record for hydrogen fuel cell technology, according to the Detroit Free Press on May 26.
The HydroGen3, a version of GM's Opel Zafira minivan, completed 3,400 miles when it arrived in Darmstadt Monday. The previous distance record for a fuel-cell propelled vehicle was set by DaimlerChrysler at 3,262 miles in a 2002 coast-to-coast drive in the U.S.
GM's HydroGen3 began its journey in Hammerfest, Norway and expects to complete its trek June 11 in Lisbon, Portugal.
