Mercedes-Benz A-Class F-Cell

 

The Mercedes A-Class F-Cell looks like any other Mercedes A-Class yet this really is a car for the next generation.  The F-Cell is hydrogen powered meaning no harmful gasses are emitted when driving the vehicle.

The technology that drives this car consists of an electric motor, batteries and two hydrogen tanks.  Mercedes have done away with the petrol engine and fuel tank.

Built as if it's a proper production model this A-Class contains 10 years of development in Hydrogen technology at Mercedes.  Mercedes hopes to have hydrogen-powered cars on general sale by 2015.  Hydrogen technology still has some way to go with 60mph coming in at over 15 seconds as the electric motor producing only 87bhp.
