2010 Mercedes Benz B Class F Cell
Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell
Mercedes-Benz is entry its commencement series-produced fire cubicle car on the route: the new Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell. The environmentally favorable electric has amend a execution exchangeable to than a 2,0-litre gas car and is full suitable for workaday impulsive. The zero-emission campaign organization consumes the eq of 3.3 litres of diesel per 100 kilometres in the NEDC (New European Drive Bicycle). Product of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell leave get in former 2009 with a little lot. The kickoff of round 200 vehicles leave be delivered to customers in Europe and the USA at the first of 2010.
The new fire cellphone fomite offers everything that multitude await from a Mercedes-Benz: Heights consolation and rubber also as no simplification in inner blank and kicking content. Customers bequeath not suffer to forfeiture any impulsive joy either, because the galvanic drive has a crown operation of 100 kW/136 hp and a uttermost torsion of 290 Nm, which is usable from the low gyration. It ensures that the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell, whose telling dynamical manipulation properties are in approximately cases far ameliorate than those of a two-litre gasoline car, gets off to an first-class commencement. Contempt these qualities, the zero-emission fire cubicle ride consumes the eq of just 3.3 litres of diesel fire per 100 kilometres (NEDC). Thanks to its large reach of roughly 400 kilometres and brusque refuelling multiplication of round iii proceedings, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell ensures local zero-emission mobility eventide for yearn stretches.

“2009 is the twelvemonth in which we are establishing encourage milestones where sustainable mobility is interested. The Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell is fetching on a pioneering purpose as the humankind’s get-go fire cellphone powered auto to be produced below serial product weather”, says Dr. Thomas Wb, Extremity of the Card of Direction of Daimler AG, responsible Radical Explore and Evolution for Mercedes-Benz Cars.
The fomite’s technical mettle is the new coevals of the squeeze, high-performance fire cadre scheme, in which gaseous h reacts with atmospherical o at 700 bar to get a stream for the galvanizing drive. The fire cadre arrangement of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell has a really beneficial cold-start capableness eve at temperatures as low as subtraction 25 degrees Celsius. The ride scheme was altogether new highly-developed versus the F-Cell A-Class presented in 2004, with Mercedes-Benz engineers achieving considerable improvements in outturn, torsion, operational compass, reliableness, start characteristics and puff. The Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell now offers drive pleasance and daily suitableness at Mercedes stratum – without local emissions.
As in hybrids with burning engines, the fuel-cell car uses a lithium-ion shelling with an yield of 35 kW and a content of 1.4 kWh to advance powerfulness and recoup braking get-up-and-go. Lithium-ion engineering offers respective advantages ended established batteries, including squeeze dimensions, gamy functioning, enceinte reload efficiency and a longsighted help aliveness.
The Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell employs the unparalleled sandwich storey architecture that is long-familiar from the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and B-Class. The advantage of this design is that the drive components are located in the sandwich floor, where they are protected and don’t take up much space so that the vehicle’s interior remains fully usable and a boot capacity of 416 litres is available.
The Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell does not need to fear comparison where equipment is concerned either. Eye-catching features include a bonamite silver paint finish and exclusive light-alloy wheels in a 10-spoke design. In the interior, leather upholstery, seat heating, automatic climate control and the COMAND-system, as well as other features, continue to ensure a high level of comfort.
Same level of safety as in other Mercedes cars
No matter what the conditions, the operational reliability of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell is of the same high level as in Mercedes vehicles with conventional combustion engines. The Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell’s integrated safety concept takes the specific characteristics of the innovative drive system into account. The concept incorporates the expertise from the many years of experience Mercedes-Benz has had with fuel cell drives and high-voltage applications. Mercedes engineers have tested and optimised the drive-specific components’ safety in more than 30 additional crash tests.
Network of filling stations required for car’s widespread use
With more than 100 test vehicles and a combined total of over 4.5 million kilometres of trial testing, Daimler and Mercedes-Benz have the most extensive experience with fuel cell vehicles of any manufacturer worldwide. The Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell is further testimony of this technology’s high level of development for automotive use. However, a comprehensive network of hydrogen filling stations still has to be set up before locally zero-emission driving can become a widespread reality. To make this possible, Daimler is cooperating with government authorities, energy utilities and oil companies in joint projects in places such as Hamburg, Stuttgart and California.
Mercedes-Benz views the development of electric cars with battery and fuel cell drives for local zero-emission driving as a means of supplementing vehicles with high-tech internal combustion engines. Advanced diesel and petrol engines will remain important for automotive applications for a long time to come – not only for individual mobility in passenger cars – especially over long distances – but, more importantly, for freight transport in trucks. Electric vehicles, on the other hand, will increasingly be used in urban transport.
