The National Fuel Cell Research Center at UC Irvine has received a Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell vehicle as part of Chevrolet’s “Project Driveway” – the largest-ever market test of fuel cell-electric vehicles. During the program, a selected group of campus leaders will drive and evaluate the next-generation vehicle – one of more than 100 that General Motors has placed in the hands of consumers, businesses and public policy partners in New York, California and Washington, DC. Drivers will provide feedback about the vehicles’ operation in real-world driving situations. Along with UCI, three other public partners received Equinox Fuel Cell vehicles through the program: the California Air Resources Board, the California Fuel Cell Partnership and the Air Quality Management District in Southern California.
