Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-CELL: The first fuel cell automobile in series production
Manufacture of a small series of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-CELL commenced in late 2009. With its 700-bar hydrogen tank in the sandwich floor unit, the first fuel cell passenger car from Mercedes-Benz to be produced under series conditions attains an operating range of around 400 kilometers. Its electric motor develops an output of 100 kilowatts, with a torque of 290 newtonmeters,´and thus has the power rating of a two-liter gasoline engine.
