GM Hopes to Begin High-Volume Fuel Cell Production by 2010

General Motors Corp.has announced that it hopes to begin high-volume production of hundreds of thousands of fuel-cell vehicles annually before the end of the decade.

The company still hasn't decided, however, how fuel will be delivered to the vehicles, or which other new propulsion systems it will sell in the meantime, according to Larry Burns, GM's vice president for research, development and planning.

GM hopes to accelerate its research with an announcement by year's end about which kinds of fuel-cell technologies seem most promising, and which ought to be abandoned. It hopes to be joined in this announcement by Toyota Motor Co., its primary research partner, and other automakers. This announcement has been delayed, however, by on-going talks between Toyota and the Japanese government about the overall direction of the Japan's industrial and environmental policies, Burns said.

``Leading companies like GM and Toyota have to have the courage to step out and lead,'' Burns said. ``They have to make a decision in a sea of ambiguity.''
