And wraps come off fuel-cell GLC

Auto Express - - News -

MERCEDES’ third show star at Frank­furt is the GLC F-CELL – a hy­dro­gen fuel-cell ver­sion of its BMW X3 and Audi Q5 ri­val that’s al­ready con­firmed for pro­duc­tion.

The new SUV mixes a pair of hy­dro­gen tanks that give a range of up to 270 miles, with a lithium-ion bat­tery pack, which can power the ve­hi­cle in pure-elec­tric mode for around 30 miles.

The rated out­puts of the new model’s fuel cell are 197bhp and 350Nm, enough to take the five-door GLC to an elec­tron­i­cally lim­ited top speed of 99mph. There are no plans for the GLC F-CELL to be sold in the UK.
