Imagine an electric car
that makes its own electricity.

The road to zero-emission mobility starts here.

The future doesn't belong to the internal combustion engine. The future is electric, but while plug-in hybrids and battery electric vehicles are great steps forward on that journey, they're not the only answer: Mercedes-Benz is working hard to harness the power of the most abundant element in the known universe. In other words, zero-emission hydrogen power.

The great thing is that we're nearly there. For 20 years,
Mercedes-Benz has refined the science and engineering behind hydrogen fuel cells; our first filled an entire van, but today, it's compact enough to fit unnoticed in a small car. That car is the B-Class F-CELL and not only is it real, it's available for lease right now in select markets.

Fuel Cell Drive Technology

Sustainable mobility for the long road ahead.

Where do you find the fuel for the next 125 years? The universe's single most abundant element is a good place to start. F-CELL drive converts compressed hydrogen—estimated to make up 74% of the known universe—into electricity. This electricity then powers an electric motor, delivering spirited performance and a range of around 190 miles, all while returning the equivalent of over
50 highway mpg and emitting nothing but water vapor. More than just a new way of moving society forward, F-CELL is a preview of a future unconstrained by range anxiety, nonrenewable fuels and worrisome emissions.

Introducing the B-Class F-CELL

A new kind of performance.

Advanced performance, from the appliance of science.

A lively 134 hp, a range of around 190 miles, no harmful emissions and all you have to do is press the accelerator. Like its hydrogen fuel, driving the B-Class F-CELL comes naturally.

Groundbreaking safety with technology to match.

Like any Mercedes-Benz, the B-Class F-CELL comes with a full suite of safety features such as Electronic Stability Control and ABS with Brake Assist, plus eight airbags and 24-hour roadside assistance.

A comfortable application of disruptive technology.

The B-Class F-CELL is a milestone in the evolution of the automobile, but it's still a Mercedes-Benz. That means world-class comfort and craftsmanship, along with technology and a commitment to the best or nothing.

The B-Class F-CELL
Pilot Program

The true test is the real world.

Regardless of how much time we've spent testing it, the ultimate trial of the B-Class F-CELL is how it performs in the real world. And along with a select group of Mercedes-Benz customers, that's exactly what we're doing right now on the streets of the Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay areas.
