Actress Diane Kruger is one of more than 35 environmental enthusiasts and early adopters in California enjoying the benefits of the Mercedes-Benz hydrogen electric fuel cell vehicle, the B-Class F-CELL — the first zero-emissions vehicle available from Mercedes-Benz in the US. It was announced today, May 16.
Kruger, who stars in “Farewell, My Queen,” drives the B-Class F-CELL, which converts compressed hydrogen into electricity to deliver a range of up to 240 miles, and an average of 55 mpg equivalent while emitting only water vapor.[ Also Read: How to Drive Digital and Social Cars ]
“I’m excited to be driving the F-CELL. It’s environmentally conscious, fun to drive and gets lots of attention on the streets,” said Diane Kruger. “I can travel more than 200 miles on a full tank and it’s easy to refuel.”
More than three dozen of the electric vehicles, powered by hydrogen fuel cells, are now available in Southern California and will be available in Northern California in June.[ Also Read: RMN Company’s Tech Market Research Reports ]
