Hydrogen Benz

By next spring, Mercedes will introduce 200 zero-emission cars that are equivalent to 2.0 liter gasoline cars but without internal combustion engines.

“Fuel cells are highly interesting bits of tech. We’ve followed Mercedes’ efforts in this arena, from the practical B-Class F-Cell shown above to the the fanciful F-Cell Roadster concept, so we’re excited to hear the Germans say they’re bringing a fuel cell powered B-Class to ‘select customers’ in Europe and America next spring. When it hits the road next year, the hydrogen-hungry B-Class will be the first series-produced fuel cell EV on the road. Yes, with only 200 planned it is a small-scale production run. But it is worth noting the cars will be coming to both Europe and America within a few months.”
