Enjoy some sweet lady H in the hydrogen-powered Mercedes GLC F-Cell

It's not like your average fuel-cell car, which could be a huge boon to consumers as the infrastructure continues to expand.

After its initial preview in 2016, the GLC F-Cell will finally receive a proper debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

It's still in pre-production, but it carries an important piece of tech you won't find on other hydrogen cars.

Along with receiving electricity from the fuel cell, the GLC F-Cell can be charged like a plug-in hybrid using an EV charger.

In 2016, it was reported to pack a 9-kWh battery.

A full battery could produce a range of between 31 and 35 miles.

In conjunction with a full tank of hydrogen, the GLC F-Cell's full range is closer to 300 miles.

This would be a big benefit to owners who aren't close to every hydrogen station on the planet.

Given how little hydrogen infrastructure exists in the US, I wouldn't see this car anywhere but California for several years still.
