AutoCar received some developing news on the hydrogen fuel-cell front as Mercedes-Benz is apparently preparing an F-CELL variant to the GLC crossover.

As a refresher, the GLC is the successor to the GLK crossover, built on an entirely-new platform designed to accomodate a wide variety of powertrains. This F-CELL hydrogen fuel-cell system would be one of them.

According to the report, the outlet spoke to Mercedes’ Professor Dr. Thomas Weber, an engineer for the development of the system, who claimed that it’ll be the latest and greatest technology available in terms of fuel-cell powertrains.

The GLC F-CELL is anticipated to be sold for a price of around 50,000 GBP in the UK, or about $71,220 USD at today’s exchange rate, not counting the federal taxes potentially offered.

No word on whether or not the GLC F-CELL will come to the US, but the production model should take a bow at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show for a sale date commencing in 2018.

Altogether, it would help boost the prominence of hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles, indicating manufacturers are preparing and developing such systems, with hopes that infrastructure for hydrogen refueling will increase as well.
