The plug-in fuel cell car offers an overall range of 500km.

The company has stated that its first series production plug-in fuel cell model, the GLC F-Cell, will go on sale in select markets in 2018. The new motor is fuelled by hydrogen and electricity and the zero-emission GLC F-Cell makes do without the standard car’s combustion engine. Each car will be fitted with a fuel cell stack, developed by Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler and Ford in the Automotive Fuel Cell Cooperation (AFCC) joint venture based in Vancouver, Canada.

Electricity needed to power the GLC F-Cell’s motor is created on board within the fuel cell stack when hydrogen and oxygen react. The resulting hydrogen is stored in two carbon-fibre-encased tanks that sit within the GLC F-Cell’s floor.

More details will be released soon, but for now, Mercedes-Benz confirms it will be combined with a 9kWh lithium-ion battery to provide an overall range of up to 500km.
