Small luxury car: Mercedes B-Class F-Cell

5 small, eco-friendly luxury cars
Mercedes B-Class F-Cell
  • Mercedes B-Class F-Cell

  • Starting price: Lease only
  • Fuel economy: The equivalent of nearly 90 mpg highway
  • Engine specifications: Fuel-cell powered

Mercedes-Benz claims the world's largest supply of fuel-cell vehicles in operation, and the B-Class F-Cell is on the cutting edge as the first zero-emission Mercedes-Benz available.

The F-Cell operates by converting compressed hydrogen into electricity. This luxury car has a range of up to 240 miles. Its eco-benefits go beyond those of even hybrid vehicles because it doesn't require gasoline for fuel.

However, you can't go to any car lot and pick up a Mercedes B-Class F-Cell. Your only option is to lease them. They are only available through a pilot program in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay area, where stations exist to power the cars.
