Ford and BP Open Hydrogen Fueling Station in Michigan

Ford Motor Company, BP, and the City of Taylor, Michigan, opened the city's first hydrogen fueling station on October 17th with support from DOE. According to the National Hydrogen Association's online database of fueling stations, the new station is the eighth in Michigan. The new station will provide fuel for four Ford Focus fuel cell vehicles that the city will use as official vehicles, serving as part of a 30-car Ford Focus fuel cell demonstration fleet now on the road in the United States, Canada, and Germany. Ford and BP are working with DOE and other automotive partners to build hydrogen fuel stations in Michigan, Florida, and California. BP is also developing refueling infrastructure to support fuel cell buses and cars in a number of cities across the world. See the Ford press release and the National Hydrogen Association database.
