Inspired from the success of the F-Cell World Drive, Daimler has announced its plans to launch a mass-market fuel-cell vehicle (FCV) in 2014.
The model is reported to have crossed all the technical hurdles and is ready to hit the markets within three years from now. The fuel cell will feature a range of 250 miles and is moving up the target for volume production from 2015 to 2014.
Three Mercedes-Benz B-Class Fuel Cell cars recently made a global trip to prove “the everyday usability of fuel-cell technology”, the immense success of which might have prompted the company to pull forward.
The price of the model is likely to be in line with the B-Class. However, there has been no word on the same from official sources.
So, stay tuned.
