Michigan U.S. Sens. Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow, take a spin around Capitol Hill in a DaimlerChrysler methanol-powered Necar5 on June 4, 2002. The first cross-country trip by a hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle ended the same day at the Capitol. Promoters see the journey as a watershed event, proving the practical use of an environmentally friendly technology that someday could replace gasoline as the fuel of choice for automobiles.
