On March 1st, the vehicles embarked on their fifth leg of the USA-tour from Houston to San Antonio. Along the way, the participants stopped for a visit at car2go in Austin and gained insight into the innovative mobility program.

Mercedes-Benz thereby emphasizes, that both, alternative drives like the fuel cell technology as well as intelligent utilization concepts can make a contribution to the individual future mobility.
Since its start on January 30, the F-CELL World Drive demonstrates how the automotive future could look like. “Electric vehicles with fuel cell are an important step on the way towards future mobility.

The F-CELL World Drive demonstrates in impressive fashion the practical merits and the major benefits of this technology which are directly apparent to the customer, such as short refuelling times and a large range,” says Dr. Thomas Weber, Daimler AG Board Member responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development. “In addition to that, we are fully convinced, that projects like car2go, allowing an alternative kind of vehicle use in cities, are an answer to the challenges of future automobility.”
