Currently, GM and Toyota are collaborating to speed up development of advanced-technology vehicles, and DaimlerChrysler is launching a large-scale test project for fuel-cell vehicles portending major changes in this industry. Forward Drive presents the fascinating story of the race to build clean cars, ones that can help to address the problems that have accompanied the rise of the gas-powered internal combustion engine. It also traces the history of automobile development exploring new technologies for clean cars, and, most exciting of all, hydrogen-based fuel cells.

The author has conducted extensive interviews with early adopters of alternative vehicles, fuel cell makers, and energy researchers, and key auto industry figures, giving us a clear picture of how automakers are getting serious about clean cars. With his passion for cars, knowledge of their history and workings, and perceptive interviews, he presents an informative and highly readable book about revolutionary cars on the immediate horizon.
