Yesterday Inergy Automotive Systems in Michigan received a very green gift from DaimlerChrysler in the form of its F-Cell hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. The F-Cell that Inergy received comes from DC's fleet of 100 fuel cell vehicles, which is the largest in the world. This particular F-Cell is actually the somewhat dated version based on Mercedes' A-class that has a range of 100 miles and can reach a top speed of 85 mph thanks to its 65 kW (88 hp) electric motor. At the most recent Geneva Auto Show the company introduced a newer F-Cell based on the B-class (shown) that sports a 100 kW (134 hp) motor with a much longer range of 250 miles.
