B-Class in Death Valley, Q&A with Elon Musk and JB Straubel.

Video tip 1: In this short film the fuel cell Mercedes B-Class proves to be a true life-saver for Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson when crossing the Death Valley. Its emissions provided the two with drinking water collected in a tank installed to the car’s exhaust. Daimler also tests its new concept under less extreme circumstances and says its 300 H2 cars running under real-life conditions have already been driven 5m miles.
