[U.S. Rep. Eric] Massa (D) had to be in the nation’s capital Tuesday for his swearing in as the 29th Congressional District’s new representative. He drove the General Motors Equinox prototype car to draw attention to the technology, some of which is being developed in the district.
The problem is the car can go about 150 to 200 miles without a refill, and the trip from Corning to Washington, D.C. is 282 miles. And there are no hydrogen refilling stations along the way.
As a result, Massa had to switch to another GM hydrogen fuel cell vehicle that was standing by in Harrisburg.
After the trip, both cars were towed back to their original locations by two Chevrolet Tahoe hybrid SUVs.
And yes of course, if you’re once to keep track of carbon emissions, the amount released to power the Tahoes was retartedly more than it would have been had he driven a normal car, or in fact a Chevy Tahoe, or likely a freakin’ dump truck. Whoo! Good start dude!
