Mercedes-Benz: Innovating Technologies Working to Bring Fuel-Cell Cars to the Market

May 02, 2008

MONTVALE, N.J. – Mercedes-Benz is leading the way in innovating technologies, and part of its process is a detailed testing schedule. From the development of a concept through to it becoming a reality, the Mercedes-Benz team looks at many different areas to make sure the vehicles are the safest on the road, according to www.fuelcellsworks.com.

Mercedes-Benz has been testing the new B-Class F-Cell in Sweden, a project that involves many different parties, not just engineers. Running on electric motors, the F-Cell is pioneering innovative drive technologies and offers power of 320Nm. As the test drivers run through the new technologies, the data is fed into a black box and back to analysts in a studio.
“It’s a bit like the technology used in Formula One racing,” said Jurgen Friedrich, the man in charge of operation and service for the F-Cell test fleet.
