DaimlerChrysler gave the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District the first fuel cell-powered fire response vehicle. The new fire response F- Cell joins the first fuel cell powered police car, also built by DaimlerChrysler, which operates in Michigan with the Wayne State University Police Department. The two vehicles are the first hydrogen fuel cell powered emergency response vehicles in the world.
The Fire Service Mercedes-Benz F-Cell will be refueled at a BP Energy hydrogen refueling station. The car has a range of 100 miles with a top speed of 85 mph. The electric motor develops 88 hp giving the care the ability to do 0 to 60 mph in 16 seconds. Might take a little long to get to the scene but at least they’ll do it efficiently.
