Mercedes Hydrogen Fuel Cell Coming Next Spring

Fuel cells are highly interesting bits of tech. Literally moon shot technology brought to earth, they've been the darling of some green energy types and certain car companies for awhile now. Mercedes-Benz for instance, arguably the people who invented the automobile, has been making great strides putting fuel cell technology into street cars.

We've followed Mercedes' efforts in this arena, from the practical B-Class F-Cell shown above to the the fanciful F-Cell Roadster concept, so we're excited to hear the Germans say they're bringing a fuel cell powered B-Class to "select customers" in Europe and America next spring.
