The new fuel cell vehicle offers everything that people expect from a Mercedes-Benz: High comfort and safety as well as no reduction in interior space and boot capacity. Customers will not have to sacrifice any driving pleasure either, because the electric motor has a peak performance of 100 kW/136 hp and a maximum torque of 290 Nm, which is available from the first rotation. It ensures that the Bâ€‘Class F-CELL, whose impressive dynamic handling properties are in some cases far better than those of a two-litre petrol car, gets off to an excellent start. Despite these qualities, the zero-emission fuel cell drive consumes the equivalent of only 3.3 litres of diesel fuel per 100 kilometres (NEDC). Thanks to its great range of about 400 kilometres and short refuelling times of around three minutes, the Bâ€‘Class F-CELL ensures local zero-emission mobility even for long stretches.
It was just. Mercedes has announced several times that he would have a hydrogen car into production before the end of the decade. We wanted to believe, but we saw in 2010 will bring … And finally here is the car. It was afraid, but here it is, and it is real. It is a class B as we had already seen several prototypes on many shows. Except it is no longer a prototype. It is still far from mass production, Mercedes does not provide for a first time to produce 200 copies. But it is a milestone of crossing over the prototype made by unit.
The rate provided is 2 cars per day. It’s little, but it already requires a dedicated organization, and Mercedes has put in place. It is true that the task was considerably simpler than that manufactures the Honda Clarity: Class B is a model already in production. The car already exists with gasoline engines, diesel or natural gas. And this versatility has opened doors that was enough to open a slightly larger version of this CAP. The integration is perfect, and even surprising, since touring the owner, it is difficult to see that it is a hydrogen car.
