A plug-in electric vehicle can be used to power a house during a winter storm, but if you're more worried about the heat of, say, Death Valley, then maybe you'll want a Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell along. That's the message of a new video from Daimler and starring Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds) and Joshua Jackson (Fringe) that promotes the company's hydrogen-powered car. The gist? You can drink the tailpipe emissions.
Over the past decade, fuel cell cars have evolved from barely functional auto show concepts into fully functional, viable vehicles that can go upwards of 300 miles on a fill up. In most cases you can just hop and drive. There's just two little details to address, the cost of the fuel cell stack and availability of hydrogen. General Motors is confident that they will have the cost of their stack down to $50/kW making it equal to current gas engine powertrains within two years.
