The front reminds me alot of the Subaru B9X Tribeca, its not a jaw dropping car i guess its ok, is this based on the skateboard thing??

a GM-badged car? why? doesn't look like the fuel cell car, don't think it's a skateboard car. rear lights remind me of audi.

I see a Huge platform resemblance, To The Subaru B9x. <p>B9x = pseudo Lambda?<br>Sequel = Lambda prequel?

I doubt it has anything to do with the B9X. The styling is just coincidence. IMO this is a one-off venicle using a tailor made chasis. Do you notice how high the seats are placed in repect to the vehicles hieght? thats a testament to the high floor construction to hold all he Fuel cell components.

So let me get this right. This Sequel is essentially the 'sequel' of the fuel cell concept GM released a few years back?<p>Like I said with the Graphyte, it looks ugly but the technology will be a breakthrough.

01-08-2005, 11:07 PM
This is the GM version of the GMC Graphyte, right?

From the A pillar to the kink in the rear window the shape is very Saab like. Could this give a hint of the B9X based 9-6?

This is the sort of thing GM needs to be building now. Tone it down a bit, rework the front end details and you've got a worthy competitor to the Murano, B9x, etc.

01-09-2005, 08:53 AM
Wow that interior is crazy too bad it won't really look like that if it becomes a model

01-09-2005, 10:39 PM
GM did a great job with the exterior of this thing! It looks a bit like a Cayenne up front, but so much nicer. The side and the rear of this thing is less controversial but very nicely done.<br>It's a shame GM is losing market share year after year, especially when a lot of their stuff is really improving.

01-10-2005, 08:49 AM
It remember me the tribeca too... at least the TCC impression is very similar to this...<br><A HREF="http://www.thecarconnection.com/index.asp?n=178&sid=178&article=7871" TARGET="_blank">http://www.thecarconnection.co...=7871</A><p><br>and the rear pillar hasn't a saab looking design? <br>Similar to the 9-3 sport hatch concept...<br><IMG SRC="http://www.bilrevyen.no/aktuelle_modeller/saab/images/SAAB_9-3_Sport_Hatch_0002_M400.jpg" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>

I'm willing to place a bet that this is based on the Subaru B9 Tribeca... WOuldn't be the first GM concept based on a Subaru...

Not likley.its the same / modified skateboard chassis that underpinned the H1 concept or whatever it was called. I do hope Gm can get this technology into production sooner rather than later. they have to be commended for the hard work they are doing trying to get hydrogen cars to the market quicker than their rivals. Now obviously it will all come down to who can get the cost down to a financially viable lever first. But Gm have set the date for introduction of this type of vehicle as 2010 so here is to hoping they can achieve that <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>(

I don't think it's wise for GM to name anything a Sequel. Everything in their past, including their recent past, is better forgotten.

<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> What SV3 said! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><br>Its a fuel cell car, the original skateboard car concept had glass at the front between the headlights, where the front occupants feet would be. Just because it was possible as the cars powertrain was inside the floor. So what gives with this things shape looking like a conventional 4x4, big grille and all! If that uses the same skateboard floor as the original concept, why does it have a bonnet/hood with a great big whacking grille? There's nothing inside there. Unless that part is a kind of front storage space, like a second boot. Still doesn't explain the stupid big grille. Maybe they could have come up with something like the original cars glass front. It would be kind of fun to go off roading and see what you just run over go under your feet!
