Mercedes-Benz has launched the zero-emission B-Class F-CELL, its first production fuel cell car. The automaker claims that the B-Class F-CELL achieves the same performance as a 2.0-liter gasoline-powered car and is "fully suitable for everyday driving."

The car will enter limited production within the next few months, the automaker said in a statement, with the first 200 vehicles being delivered to customers in the U.S. and Europe beginning in early 2010.

The B-Class F-CELL's drivetrain and lithium-ion battery combination generates 136 hp, has a range of about 250 miles, and takes three minutes to refuel. Mercedes-Benz says the B-Class F-CELL can cold-start at 25 degrees below zero (Celsius).
