Fuel Cell-Powered Mercedes Scheduled for 2015

The engineers over at Daimler AG are hard at work developing mass production fuel cell vehicles that they hope to launch “within the next decade.” Seeing how society has become overly reliant on fossil fuels, more and more automakers are starting to look to alternative methods for powering their cars. Fuel cells provide one opportunity.

Interestingly, Daimler is not new to fuel cell technology. The company made its first fuel cell car way back in 1994. The Necar 1 didn’t exactly receive much fanfare at the time, but as more attention is drawn towards fuel cells, Daimler is ready to give it another go. According to Christian Mohrdieck, director of fuel cell system development, “By 2012 or 2015, we will be technologically well-advanced and in a position to product cost-effective cars, comparable to those with other technologies.”

At this time, Daimler has about 100 fuel cell vehicles in its test fleet, racking in over 2.23 million miles thus far.
