Reporter finds driving fuel cell vehicle similar to other cars

A writer for the San Francisco Chronicle spent a few days in a Mercedes-Benz FCX fuel-cell car. Although he wanted to feel like a pioneer with the upcoming technology, he discovered that hydrogen fuel-cell cars are quite similar in most driving aspects to mainstream vehicles. There are the quiet operation and the adjustments for refueling, but Michael Taylor found the experience not unlike driving an electric vehicle (as AutoblogGreen readers should already know). One concern: driving in the rain put him on edge because the lights and wipers were using up juice.
