General Motors Still Using HUMMER to Push Fuel Cell Technology

Hydrogen Hummer H2H

This last week, officials from General Motors were in Newark, NJ to promote fueling stations for their fuel-cell electric vehicles – and instead of bringing a vehicle from their current lineup, they brought a hydrogen powered HUMMER H2.

The technology is “real and it’s here today. Now we need to expand it to cover the millions of potential fuel cell customers wanting to experience guilt-free driving in our region,” GM’s Gary Stottler told Delaware Online.

We’re not sure if it’s the same hyrdogen Hummer that was making the rounds about 5 years ago (there can’t be too many, right?), most notably taking on the Bull Run Rally as the first hydrogen vehicle ever to participate.

While GM makes a good point that Hydrogen can even power an H2 – it’s strange they would showcase a vehicle they don’t offer anymore that’s 5-6 years old as the wave of the future.

    Nice to see the H2H! I always liked the slant back!

    Maybe that is a good sign that GM is not 100% finished with HUMMER for good. I can see it now, 10 years from now there will be an electric H2 that gets 100mpg and zero emissions. 🙂
