Following the conclusion of F-Cell World Drive, Mercedes-Benz/Daimler confirmed that it is taking its partnership with The Linde Group to the next level as they build hydrogen fuel cell stations.
Daimler will invest heavily on putting up F-Cell fueling stations. Reuters reported that the company has plans to invest millions of Euros for this project, which will be seen first in cities of Germany.
Dieter Zetsche, head of Mercedes-Benz said “ “With the F-CELL World Drive we have shown, that the time for electric vehicles with fuel cell has come. Now the development of the infrastructure has to pick up speed,” adding that, ““For only an adequate number of hydrogen fueling stations enables car drivers to benefit from the advantages of this technology: high range, short refueling times, zero emissions.”
Aside from Linde Group, who is already the fueling partner of F-Cell World Drive, other companies joining this initiative are EnBW, the French company Total and OMV the oil giant. All of them will take part in having fuel stations to be set-up all over the world.
