Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-CELL (model series T 245). In 2010, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-CELL proves that local emission-free mobility is already a possibility for the everyday driver. Produced in a small series, this vehicle is equipped with the latest generation fuel-cell system, which generates electric energy from hydrogen. One tankful of the gas, which is compressed to 700 bar, gives the vehicle a range of around 400 kilometres. This, allied to an excellent cold-start capability, short refuelling time at hydrogen filling stations and the impressive performance of the 100 kW (136 hp) electric motor with its torque of 290 Newton-metres, distinguishes the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-CELL as a motor car that is eminently suitable for everyday use. Further exemplary attributes are the vehicle’s safety and low fuel consumption, equivalent to just 3.3 litres of diesel per 100 kilometres. Since 2010, customers in Germany and the USA have been adopting this environment-friendly vehicle, initially in the context of a full-service rental.
