Southern California Helps Chevy’s “Project Driveway” Pass 1 Million Miles

November 10, 2009

Early last year, Chevrolet put out a fleet of fuel efficient crossovers unlike any other: the zero-emission, hydrogen-powered fuel cell Chevy Equinox. The Equinox Fuel Cell is not yet for sale, but through a program called “Project Driveway,” thousands of real drivers—parents, professionals, young and old—have spent two months behind the wheel of the Equinox with free fuel and insurance, in exchange for real life feedback on the vehicles.

Project Driveway reached its “Millionth Mile” just last month, which means that the 5,000+ real drivers who’ve spent time behind the wheel of the Chevy Equinox fuel cell fleet have driven one million emissions-free miles between them. That has saved over 50,000 gallons of gas, while in the process giving Chevrolet valuable real-road insight into producing fuel cell vehicles for mass-scale use.

Southern California is one of just three locations across the nation chosen to participate in Project Driveway (the other two are Washington D.C. and New York City), and one of the leading locales for forward-thinking hydrogen refueling stations. The majority of the million miles thus far driven in Project Runway have taken place here.
