So Cal Edison Gets a DaimlerChrysler F-Cell


Southern California Edison (SCE) took possession of a hydrogen fuel cell-powered DaimlerChrysler F-Cell for operation and testing.

This F-Cell is not one of the new, higher-powered, longer-ranged B-class-based vehicles DaimlerChrysler introduced at the Geneva show in March (earlier post), but the earlier A-class-based vehicle.

The entire F-Cell fuel cell system is housed in the floor, leaving full use of the passenger and cargo spaces. It has a range of approximately 100 miles and a top speed of 85 mph. The electric motor develops 88 hp (65 kW), enabling acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 14 seconds. The stack is developed by DaimlerChrysler’s cooperation partner, Ballard Power Systems.

The next-generation F-Cell, by contrast, develops 100 kW and has a range of some 250 miles.

The SCE F-Cell is one of more than 100 fuel cell vehicles—the largest in the world—DaimlerChrysler has put into service worldwide. The data collected through vehicle operation will contribute to the DOE Hydrogen Learning Demonstration Project.

DaimlerChrysler has invested more than $1 billion in hydrogen fuel cell technology so far.
