Cadillac is known for its classic, elegant and luxurious vehicles. The brand is equated with wealth and the finer things in life. So when we hear about an eco-friendly vehicle from Cadillac, people stand up and take notice. Maybe the idea of alternative fueled cars is not a far-fetched dream but rather modern day reality.
Although only in the concept stages and not yet available for general sale, Cadillac showed the new Provoq earlier this year at the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show. Born from General Motors’ vision to replace gasoline as mainstream fuel, the Provoq is a hydrogen fuel cell crossover. It uses fuel cell technology coupled with a lithium-ion battery. The result is a vehicle driven electrically without the detrimental emissions of gas. It is called hydrogen fuel cell because the only emission is vapor or water.
