Powering the new GLC variant, called the GLC F-Cell will feature two hydrogen tanks made from carbon-fibre, one mounted longitudinally under the centre of the car and the other transversely at the back. The two tanks will carry a total of 4.3 kilograms of Hydrogen which will be stored at a pressure of 700bar. The hydrogen is used by a compact fuel cell stack that was co-developed with Ford and sits where the engine usually sits on a normal GLC.
The mysterious EV car looks like the GLC Concept and it will run on an EV powertrain with more than 200 miles to offer. The vehicle will also be equipped with the best luxuries which Mercedes is famous for.
Of course, we don’t have any actual figures at the moment and the only way to find out is through tuning into the Paris Motor Show. What are you expecting from the EV SUV by Mercedes-Benz?
This would help Mercedes GLE take on the likes of the Tesla Model X as well as Hyundai’s planned 250-mile all-electric crossover, while the GLC takes on the Tesla Model Y when the design language is eventually adopted to their 2019 production models.
We will have the first ever look at what three-pointed star from Stuttgart has in store for its electrified future in early October at the 2016 Paris Auto Show when the all-electric SUV concept makes its debut.
