Video: GM shows off hydrogen powered Chevy Equinox

At a recent press event, GM showed off its hydrogen powered Chevrolet Equinox SUV. For the next two months 100 individuals will test fuel-cell versions of its Equinox SUV in California, New York and Washington, D.C.

The SUV uses no petroleum and releases zero greenhouse gases. So with gas reaching $4 a gallon why isn’t this hydrogen Equinox going into mass production. Well, mainly because it wouldn’t be commercially viable for the General. Each unit costs GM more than $250,000 to build. However, with customer feedback, innovation and if the government provides incentives to consumers to make it more affordable, the fuel-cell powered SUV could reach commercialization in the near future.

The SUV has the ability to travel 200 miles on a tank at 50mpg.
