Diane Kruger with Mercedes-Benz F-CELL

Diane Kruger co-stars with Mercedes-Benz F-CELL

Actress Diane Kruger and other eco-conscious consumers hit the road with the hydrogen-powered Mercedes-Benz F-Cell.

Actress Diane Kruger is one of more than 35 environmental enthusiasts and early adopters to drive the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-CELL. In a recent press release issued by Mercedes, Kruger, who stars in "Farewell, My Queen," drives the emission-free B-Class F-CELL and was photographed at a fueling station in Los Angeles. It is a popular vehicle with the Hollywood crowd and produces no emissions, but only pure water.

The photo had to be taken quickly because the fuel tank can be filled in just three minutes. “I’m excited to be driving the F-CELL. It’s environmentally conscious, fun to drive and gets lots of attention on the streets”, says Diane Kruger. “I can travel around 245 miles on a full tank and it’s easy to refuel.” The B-Class F-CELL converts compressed hydrogen into electricity to deliver a range of up to 240 miles, and an average of 55 mpg equivalent while emitting only water vapor.

In the press release, Mercedes says more than three dozen of the electric vehicles, powered by hydrogen fuel cells, are now available in Southern California and will be available in Northern California in June. Mercedes is leasing the B-Class F-CELL to its customers in Southern California at around $849 per month for 24 months. Several fueling stations are now open in Los Angeles and surrounding areas, including Newport Beach, which opened this past March.
