Mercedes-Benz announces first fuel cell car

The Mercedes-Benz F-CELL hydrogen-powered electric to be released later this

After much discussion and releases about the latest of battery-powered hybrid vehicles, be forgiven for thinking that cell technology had been behind. Not so. Mercedes-Benz is launching it says is the world’s first fuel cell car: the new F-CELL. This electric car has emissions, has a range of 400km, three minutes to refuel hydrogen and consumes the equivalent of 3.3 of diesel per 100km in the NEDC European Driving Cycle). has a history with fuel vehicles, releasing the BlueZERO in 2008, the F-CELL Roadster in this year, and the F 600 HYGENIUS in (all concept vehicles).

As in most hybrids with engines, the fuel-cell car also a lithium-ion battery (with an of 35kW and a capacity of 1.4kWh) to power and recover braking Lithium-ion is now the chosen battery because it offers several over conventional batteries, compact dimensions, high excellent recharge efficiency and a service life.

Mercedes-Benz has a with fuel cell releasing the BlueZERO in December the F-CELL Roadster in April year, and the F 600 HYGENIUS in 2005 concept vehicles). Production of the new will commence later year with a sample At the beginning of next year the of around 200 vehicles will be to customers in Europe and the USA.

At the technological heart of the F-CELL is the new of compact, high-performance fuel systems, in which gaseous reacts with atmospheric at 700 bar to generate a current for the electric

Mercedes-Benz says the fuel system of the B-Class F-CELL has a good cold-start capability at temperatures as low as -25ºC (-13ºF). The system has been completely from the F-CELL A-Class in 2004, with Mercedes-Benz achieving considerable improvements in torque, operating range, starting characteristics and comfort.

is the year in which we are establishing milestones where sustainable is concerned. The B-Class F-CELL is on a pioneering role as the world’s fuel cell-powered automobile to be under series production says Dr Thomas Weber, of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, for Group Research and Development for Cars.

Best of both worlds

says customers will be by much more than the F-CELL’s performance. The company the new fuel cell vehicle everything that people from a Mercedes-Benz: high of comfort and safety, plus no in interior space and boot

The B-Class F-CELL employs the sandwich floor architecture is synonymous with the A- and B-Class. The of this design is that the components are located in the sandwich where they are protected the vehicle’s interior remains usable and provides a boot of 416 liters.

The vehicle’s features include an bonamite silver paint and exclusive light-alloy wheels in a design. Inside, leather seat heating, automatic control and the COMAND-system (navigation).

engineers have tested and the drive-specific components’ safety in at 30 additional crash tests and and Mercedes-Benz have invested in than 100 test vehicles a combined total of over 4.5 kilometers (2.8 million of trial testing – which say is the most extensive experience fuel cell vehicles of any worldwide.

However, as with electric vehicles, much of the of hybrid vehicles depends on the of refilling/recharging stations in the cities and

The company says a comprehensive of hydrogen filling stations has to be set up before local zero-emission can become a widespread reality. To end, Daimler is working government authorities, energy and oil companies in joint projects in such as Hamburg, Stuttgart and

Mercedes-Benz views the development of cars with battery and cell drives for local driving as a means of supplementing with high-tech internal engines. Advanced diesel and engines will remain for automotive applications for a long to come — especially for transport in trucks which over long distances. the company believes electric will increasingly be used for transport.
