Going round with Benz
AUSTRALIA is on Mercedes-Benz’s map as it takes a trio of fuelcell cars on a world cruise.
The tour is part of the 125th birthday of the invention of the motor car.
The three B-Class zeroemission F-Cell cars left Stuttgart last weekend on their 125-day trip. They are expected in Perth in April.
Travelling 30,000km through 14 countries, the three B-Class cars aim to confirm the maturity of fuel-cell technology and its suitability for daily use.
Mercedes-Benz says it ‘‘will also take the opportunity to enforce the political call to establish a comprehensive filling station infrastructure for fuel cell vehicles’’.
On January 29, 1886, Carl Benz filed the patent for his threewheeled vehicle.
Daimler AG is taking this date as an opportunity to give a specific insight into the future of mobility.
