Mercedes going green at Frankfurt Motor Show

With the European Union still mulling mandatory CO2 limits, it looks like the three pointed star brand from Stuttgart will be pushing their green efforts in a big way at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. According to Auto Motor und Sport, Mercedes Benz will show eighteen "environmentally friendly" models.

At least one of the vehicles on display will be a C-class with a BlueTec equipped diesel and the mild hybrid system the company is working on with BMW. The report also says that Mercedes will build a low-volume series run of fuel cell powered B-Class models in 2010. That would put Mercedes at least three years behind GM with their similar run of Equinox fuel cell vehicles which are coming this fall.
