PARTNERSHIP PLAN: FREEDOMCAR & FUEL PARTNERSHIP
The FreedomCAR and Fuel Partnership (the Partnership) began in September 2003 as an expansion of the FreedomCAR Partnership, which was originally established in January 2002 by Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham and senior executives of DaimlerChrysler Corporation, Ford Motor Company, and General Motors Corporation. The CAR in FreedomCAR stands for Cooperative Automotive Research. The Partnership is an effort examining the pre-competitive, high-risk research needed to develop the component and infrastructure technologies necessary to enable a full range of affordable cars and light trucks, and the fueling infrastructure for them that will reduce the dependence of the nation's personal transportation system on imported oil and minimize harmful vehicle emissions, without sacrificing freedom of mobility and freedom of vehicle choice. The partners are: the United States Department of Energy (DOE), BP America, ChevronTexaco Corporation, ConocoPhillips, Exxon Mobil Corporation, Shell Hydrogen (U.S.), and the United States Council for Automotive Research (USCAR)-a legal partnership among DaimlerChrysler Corporation, Ford Motor Company, and General Motors Corporation.
