Mercedes Hydrogen F-Cell Uses LEDs To Blend In

How do you create great visibility for your new fuel cell demonstration vehicle? If you’re Mercedes- Benz, you coat your F-Cell with LEDs and make it next to invisible – then take lots of pictures and videos of it. Oh also, circumnavigate the globe with it and make sure that gets good publicity too.

These feats Mercedes has accomplished, and the video shows its virtual invisibility cloak intended to make everyone look.

The F-Cell’s estimated EPA driving range from its 10,150 psi hydrogen tank that stores 3.7 kg of hydrogen is presently listed by M-B at 190 miles (240 miles on Euro cycle), with fuel economy (city/highway per kg Hydrogen) rated at 52/53.

The four-door, four-passenger CUV is front wheel drive, has a curb weight of 3,990 pounds, top speed of 106 mph, and 0-60 performance of 11.4 seconds, Mercedes says. Cargo volume is 19.2 cubic feet with the back seat row up, or 54 cubic feet with it folded down.

As for that long road trip, the F-Cell took 70 driving days to cover four continents. It was limited by the fact that there are only 200 refilling stations worldwide and it had to make use of a mobile refilling helper to get it all the way home.

Mercedes hopes to increase awareness for its hydrogen tech demonstrator, and would like to see more fueling stations as well. Mercedes notes tech specs are subject to change.

    Well.. i don’t find that being invisible is an acomplishment in the automobile industry! I think the cars should be verrrrry visible in order not make accidents in the traffic!

    Why is there a Euro cycle…. I have a hybrid that in the US doesn’t come with an all electrical mode when traveling at low speed because they don’t put the chip in the US, but the rest of the world gets their hybrid complete with the chip… Why? It conserves more fuel…
