On January 29, Mercedes-Benz celebrated, in style, the 125th anniversary of the first car in the world, according to autoevolution.com. A series of events marked the day in Germany, including the very special start of the Mercedes-Benz F-CELL World Drive. The start of the World Drive, which took place in Stuttgart on Sunday, was announced by Dieter Zetsche, Daimler’s chairman, who, in front of important guests, including German chancellor Angela Merkel, pulled a gun and fired the starting shot. “Some 125 years after the invention of the motor car, for us the B-Class F-CELL embodies its reinvention”, said Zetsche. Once on the road, the three F-Cell cars will not stop for 125 days. The vehicles will reach 14 countries, all types of climate imaginable and, who knows, perhaps new heights of efficiency. The B-Klasse F-Cell is one of the models at the core of Daimler’s green vision.
