Mercedes Gets Through Its Ener-G-Force Fuel Cell SUV Concept

Mercedes is presenting a futuristic hydrogen fuel-cell-powered SUV concept in a challenge for automotive designers hosted by The La Auto Show, running from November 30 to December 9.

The German automaker imagined a spectacularly innovative SUV: the Mercedes Ener-G-Force provides a few hints as to the direction in which tomorrow’s off-roaders are headed — ever ‘greener’ and fully loaded.

Its power arises from a hydrogen fuel cell system that generates fuel from recycled water held in rooftop tanks and sends power to the motors located in the wheel hubs, for an operating range of about 800 km (about 500 miles).
