Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell: Entree triomplale in Vancouver
Decidedly cars has alternative powertrains have more dimension, in Canada, including the various provincial and national authorities, or even the organizers present the Vancouver Olympics.
Thus, after the iconic Toyota Prius, the Honda FCX Clarity fuel cell electric Nissan Leaf and, behold, it was the turn of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell battery is burning, been revealed in high in the first part of the Vancouver Olympics. In recent that that emit water vapor, sernt has exposed inside the Oakridge Mall and Edgewater Casino, situated in the city center.
But they will also walk the streets of Vancouver to make the demonstration of their expertise in matters ecological.

The vehicles Mercedes-Benz F-CELL B-Class make their first Canadian in Vancouver
Mercedes-Benz Canada presents its "Car of Tomorrow" in two sites of special exhibition Vancouver. This is the first appearance of these zero emission vehicles in Canada.
Leaders on a global scale, these vehicles Mercedes-Benz B-Class fuel cell are exposed to Oakridge Mall and Edgewater Casino situated in downtown Vancouver. Also keep your eyes on the road sides as two other vehicles Mercedes-Benz F-CELL will walk the streets of Vancouver are emitting only water vapor from their exhaust pipe.
Distinguished by an avant-garde as well as the fuel cell technology that is the more advanced, the new B-Class F-CELL 2010 Mercedes-Benz is the first electric car has fuel cell produced a series of cross road. The first 200 vehicles to be produced will be delivered to customers commencing in spring 2010.
"As the inventor of the automobile, we must now be a leader in matters of emission-free driving," stated Marcus Breitschwerdt, president and general director of Mercedes-Benz Canada. "Our customers demand that there was a better Mercedes-Benz, and we are proud to offer world leading technology in the field of fuel cell was developed right here in Canada. The technology employed for the system drive of the B-Class F-CELL is based on the assembly optimizes fuel cells of latest generation developed by the Automotive Fuel Cell Cooperation (AFCC) in Vancouver. "
This system evolved is 40% smaller than the Class F-CELL previous generation, but offers increased power by 30% while reducing consumption by 30%. Compared to its predecessor, the B-Class F-CELL Mercedes-Benz also excels thanks to significant technological progress: it is clearly superior in terms of performance driving, longevity, autonomy and energy efficiency, and is able to cold start at temperatures as low as - 25 ° Celsius.
Featuring modular design concept BlueZERO Mercedes-Benz intends to future program of electric vehicle manufacturer, the B-Class F-CELL Mercedes-Benz houses the major components of the propulsion system in the sandwich floor in a configuration withstands shocks. This car has all the attributes that customers expect today's vehicles, including rapid accelerations, a high power density, excellent load capacity, low running costs, fast refueling and autonomy over 400 km.
A diagram sectional view of the F 600 research car HYGENIUS Mercedes-Benz is also exhibited at Edgewater Casino. Powered by a propulsion system has a fuel cell zero emission power developping 115 hp, the compact family car consumes the equivalent of only 2.9 liters per 100 kilometers. The energy that is not needed to drive the car is stored in a high-performance lithium-ion battery, so that the system functions as a hybrid propulsion system and uses the energy source best suited to the situation driving. The generous amount of energy provided by the fuel cell may also contribute to the well-being of passengers in the F 600 HYGENIUS. For example, the cup holder cool or heat up the grace beverages electricity generated by the ecological unit.
"The test fuel cell vehicles a Mercedes-Benz have traveled more than 4.5 million kilometers to date in the context of testing. Technologies of fuel cells offer consumers similar to those practical benefits of internal combustion engines today, but respond to the growing concerns about mobility such as climate change, the increased use of vehicles in the country the developing and the will no longer depend on oil, "stated Andreas Truckenbrodt, CEO of AFCC. "As we move towards a future low-carbon, Mercedes-Benz also actively supports the establishment of a hydrogen infrastructure for refueling full of fuel cell vehicles is collaborating closely with governments and companies in the energy sector.
