Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-CELL is the company’s first ever fuel cell electric vehicle that was mass produced by the automaker. The technology utilizes a chemical reaction from hydrogen and oxygen to generate the required electricity to run the car. It’s environmentally friendly with pure water as the only emission, in which Hollywood stars Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson took a challenge to survive California’s Death Valley desert by using only the water produced by the fuel cell car. Can they survive the challenge? Check out the video after the break.

The California’s Death Valley desert is one of the world’s driest place and Hollywood stars Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson took the F-CELL car on a road trip just relying on the car’s water emission. That’s driving in 120-degree weather without any drinking stock trusting their lives on B-Class F-CELL’s emission. The image below shows Diane and Joshua cooking using the water emission by the B-Class F-CELL.


Mainly this short film explains the advantages and potential of fuel cell when utilized in the drive system, both Hollywood stars have been enthusiasts of the B-Class F-CELL testing for two years now and with Joshua Jackson took part of Mercedes-Benz World Drive F-CELL 2011.
