Mercedes in Stuttgart welcomed its two globe-trotting B-Class F-Cell vehicles after the pair’s successful 30,000 km journey. A trio of B-Class F-Cell cars initially set off from the European continent but an accident last May resulted in one vehicle being left by the wayside. The drive went through four continents and 14 countries, and with this accomplishment, the German manufacturer has proved that hydrogen-fueled cars are as viable and reliable as other types of cars, and not just electric cars. What proved to be lacking was the infrastructure for hydrogen-fueled cars. Even Mercedes admits that this deficit will need to be addressed before hydrogen cars become a viable means of… Continue Reading »
