Mercedes will drive its hydrogen fuel cell-powered F-Cell around the world
12 January 2011

Mercedes has announced that its B-class F-Cell will be driven around the world to promote hydrogen fuel cell powered cars.

The ‘Mercedes-Benz F-Cell World Drive’ is a marketing ploy by the company and will showcase the usability and functionality of hydrogen as an alternative fuel - refuelling the F-Cell takes only three minutes, according to the company.

Three B-class F-Cell Mercs will take part, each covering a distance of approximately 18,500 miles. The drive begins in Stuttgart on January 30 and finishes in the same city at the beginning of June.
