Stuttgart Airport's Follow Me Vehicle is a Mercedes-Benz B-Class

Yes, the Stuttgart Airport 'employed' the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell model as the “follow me” car for the planes taxiing the runways.

The airport and the company really prepared for this project as the set-up dedicated hydrogen refueling stations in the airport so even if the F-Cell only has a range of 400KM, getting it pumped is not a problem.

The car is a very environment-friendly vehicle as its 136HP electric motor is run by a hydro/oxygen chemical, this in turn create a byproduct which is water.

“As you can see, we are keeping up with the latest technological developments in ground-based drive systems.” said States Walter Schoefer, MD of airport manager Flughafen Stuttgart. This is a great start as other businesses can also see the value of having this Earth-friendly car, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell.
