I caught up with some of the guys from the world tour driving this extremely economical car. Couldn’t help myself I had to take a portrait!
A little bit about what they are trying to achieve:
With the “Mercedes-Benz F-CELL World Drive” we will prove that the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-CELL can manage not only challenging street and weather conditions but is also ready to inspire the world. Consistent with the 125th anniversary of the automobile, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-CELL will circumnavigate the world in 125 days, giving journalists and Automotive Fans the opportunity to join in a round-the-world-trip while experiencing fuel cell technology at its best. The hydrogen required during the tour will be supplied by the Linde AG, who supports the F-CELL World Drive.
