GM's fuel cell fleet, which has been in test operation since 2008, has already covered over three million kilometers. The ADAC's Opel HydroGen4 cracked the anniversary mile.
General Motors is celebrating its anniversary with its fuel cell fleet. The two millionth mile, which is the equivalent of 3.22 million kilometers, has now been completed by the ADAC's "Yellow Angel", operating as the Opel HydroGen4. "This is a real milestone on the road to making hydrogen fuel cell vehicles a reality," said Charlie Freese, GM's executive director for global fuel cell operations.
100 vehicles test suitability for everyday use
100 fuel cell vehicles have been in test operation worldwide since 2009, ten of which are in Berlin alone. ADAC employee Michael Herzfeld drives the HydroGen4, which has been converted into a breakdown vehicle, emission-free from breakdown to breakdown within Berlin. "We will use the experience gained from operating our test fleet to date to make our hydrogen fuel cell technology even more reliable and affordable for customers. At the same time, we are exploring future commercial applications," continues Freese.
The test fleet in Berlin is part of the "Clean Energy Partnership" (CEP), a European lighthouse project funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport. The aim of the project is to test the fuel cell technology in terms of everyday operation, refueling and infrastructure. (AG)
