Hollywood stars Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger have teamed up to show off the amazing potential of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-CELL in their new film “Mercedes-Benz TV: Defying Death Valley.” The B-Class F-CELL is a Mercedes-Benz electric car made for mass production, and it’s only emission is pure water. Filming the whole way, Joshua and Diana brought no water with them, relying solely upon the car’s emissions for survival.

The F-CELL technology is truly groundbreaking. It is the first fuel cell electric vehicle made for mass production by Mercedes-Benz, and it is 20 years in the making. That’s right, zero-emission hydrogen power, available to the public. Well, nearly-zero emission. The clean water that it produces did keep Joshua and Diana supplied with pure H2O for their trek through Death Valley.

The Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-CELL creates electricity by converting compressed hydrogen (the most abundant element in the known universe). This electricity drives the car’s electric motor with an efficiency that’s equivalent to about 50 highway mpg.

They’re already roaming the roads, with over 200 vehicles combining for thousands of miles between Europe and the USA since 2010. The 70 B-Class F-CELL vehicles in the states have together driven almost 1 million miles, saving an estimated 270 tons of carbon dioxide and almost 30,000 gallons of fuel.

When it comes time to charge the vehicle, the task takes less than three minutes. That’s right, in less than three minutes your car is ready to drive another 250 miles.

In addition, its 134hp motor has a bit more zip than you might expect – that is, if you haven’t driven an electric car before. And it’s still a Mercedes-Benz throughout, with eight airbags, ABS with Brake Assist, Electronic Stability Control, and 24-hour roadside assistance.

How id Joshua and Diana fare? The vehicle’s pure water emissions kept them happy and healthy throughout their Death Valley adventure. Beginning with a few hesitant sips, the two stars were soon happy to be enjoying all of the cool, clear water that their car could give them. They even used to it to cook their meals.

Imagine a future where your car’s only contribution to the environment is completely clean water. That future is here. Check out the Mercedes-Benz TV: Defying Death Valley challenge.
