The California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), which includes American Honda, General Motors, Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Toyota, and Volkswagen, last week listed an initial network of 19 stations the group feels would best serve the state and its future fuel-cell vehicle drivers. The CaFCP was looking for locations that would provide a combination of being near potential users, while giving those drivers the ability to fill up during city-to-city travel.
The group's "primary" list includes Northern California locales such as San Francisco and the East Bay's Berkeley/Richmond/Oakland area. Down south, the group recommends the Beverly Hills/Westwood areas on Los Angeles' Westside, as well as Manhattan Beach and Torrance/Palos Verdes, while also suggesting two San Diego stations. Lebec, a town along Interstate 5 that's about 80 miles north of Los Angeles, is also included. Take a look at the CaFCP's letter here.
