Hollywood stars Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson have been enjoying time at the wheel of Mercedes-Benz’ B-Class F-CELL for more than two years; they have produced a video about it.
Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson are not the only ones enjoying the B-Class F-CELL stated Mercedes-Benz. In the U.S. alone, an F-CELL fleet comprising some 70 vehicles has covered more than 1 million miles – saving around 113,500 liters (29,983.52 U.S. gallons) of fuel and almost 270 tones of carbon dioxide in the process.
Mercedes-Benz added a total of around 200 vehicles have been with customers in the U.S. and Europe since 2010 and one of these vehicles already has 315,000 kilometers (195,731.92 miles) on the clock.
Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson are now showing in a video the potential the fuel cell drive system offers – on a trip in California’s Death Valley, one of the driest places in the world. The video can be viewed at http://mb4.me/drive4water.
“We’ve become absolute fans of the fuel cell. The car is so easy to use. On a day-to-day basis our normal mobility isn’t restricted at all – and we had no water problems in Death Valley either”, said Diane Kruger.
In the video “Defying Death Valley” the two stars drive through the heat of Death Valley – without any drinking water stock. Their lives rely on the emissions of the B-Class F-CELL. The Hollywood stars are using the water resulting out of the operation of the F-CELL for drinking and cooking.
“It takes three minutes to fill up, drives about 400 kilometers (248.54 miles) and gives off zero emissions – simply perfect”, added Joshua Jackson.
The B-Class F-CELL is the first fuel cell electric vehicle from Mercedes-Benz to be built under series-production conditions. The electricity required for driving is generated on board the car in a chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen.
