But technological stumbling blocks and competitive pressures have forced GM to rethink its plans, USA Today said.The fuel cells combine hydrogen and oxygen to produce energy without the pollution of gasoline. Hybrids combine an internal combustion engine and an electric motor to deliver high fuel economy and ultralow emissions.
