Mercedes-Benz has become the first manufacturer to announce that they will start series production of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. In mid 2010 they will kick off low volume production of their B-Class F-Cell using a next generation fuel cell stack. Compared to the current prototype, the stack is forty percent smaller with a thirty percent improvement in power output and sixteen percent less hydrogen consumption.

The electric drive system has also been re-worked with a smaller package size and better output. The fuel consumption of the new car is expected to be about the equivalent of 81 mpg (diesel equivalent). It's not clear how that's calculated but we'll look into it.
