Hybrid Vehicle - Mercedes-Benz F-Cell World Drive successfully completed

The round the world trip of Mercedes-Benz it's hybrid vehicle, the F-Cell, is completed. Marking their 125 year anniversery this went on to demonstrate the viability of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

 

One thing to draw my atyention; calling a hybrid fuel cell car an alternative to a "traditional EV". What is traditional about the current generation of EVs then? If you have any suggestions, feel free to share them with us, I'd be interested to learn.

 

All in all, congratulations for Mercedes-Benz on their anniversery and completing the trip, a nice achievement!

The German automaker hopes that the drive will prove that fuel-cell vehicles are a viable alternative to traditional EVs and internal combustion vehicles and that lawmakers and businesses will respond by ramping up the infrastructure necessary to easily operate a fuel-cell auto.
