Top speed seems low.
GM should not have given up supercruise gearing.
That way they could have gotten 220mph in 5th.

Just as long as it doesn't run on Hydrogen..........Hydrogen is a BS technology.

I'm a mechanical engineer currently working in PEM automotive fuel cells, so I think I'm pretty qualified to comment. I will say this:

Hydrogen Fuel cells won't work for MANY years to come. They're just an engineer's toy, and political tool at the moment.

Let me ask you a simple question, how safe do you feel about a tank the size of your trunk, pressurized to 10,000 psi, sitting 5 feet from you?
