@Charles – That's a huge number of fuel cell vehicles. I am sure there is much demand for this in the market out there.

I don't think we need to worry about anti-trust violations, Al. At least not yet. This reminds me of the U.S. Advanced Battery Consortium, which was formed by GM, Ford and Chrysler in about 1990. It was never a problem, as far as I know.

Although we're going to see a few a few production vehicles by 2015, we're a long way from big volumes, Rob. By 2020, we're expecteing 3,700 fuel cell vehicles in the U.S., which is about two-hundredths of one percent.

Interesting development, Chuck.  Any insights on whether this is unusual or if there are synergies here that make sense? I would think there would be a fundamental conflict in working together or at least a worry that you might be helping a main competitor.

Hey Chuck, is this partnership likely to push fuel cell vehicles closer to high-volume production of consumer acceptance?
