Make General Motors
Model AUTOnomy
Concept year 2002
Production year -
Engine Fuel cell

The GM AUTOnomy shown at the 2002 Detroit Auto Show was the first vehicle to be designed and built exclusively with fuel cell power in mind. The AUTOnomy also incorporated drive-by-wire technology, this means the major controls of the car such as steering, braking and acceleration are controlled electronically rather than mechanically.

The AUTOnomy is built on a common chassis onto which any number of different bodies can be attached, the chassis also holds the bulk of the essential running components meaning the bodies themselves are rather light and can be changed easily.

In theory AUTOnomy owners could purchase several different bodies which can then be attached to the skateboard like chassis to suit the needs of the owner at that time.
