Formerly known as NuCellSys GmbH – a fully owned subsidiary of Daimler AG – the company is operating under the name Mercedes-Benz Fuel Cell GmbH, as of January 2019
“Fuel cell technology is an integral part of our drive system strategy”, says Professor Christian Mohrdieck, Head of Mercedes-Benz Fuel Cell GmbH and thus responsible for fuel cell drive system development at Daimler AG. “Zero local CO2 emissions, long ranges and short refuelling times, plus a wide range of applications from cars to buses, other large commercial vehicles and not least also for stationary applications make the technology a futureproof alternative. By changing the company name we are sending a clear signal and emphasising the future relevance of fuel cell technology. We are also dovetailing more closely with Daimler AG.”
Mercedes-Benz Fuel Cell GmbH is founded on deep and long-standing know-how in fuel cell technology. All activities concerned with developing fuel cell systems have been focused at the Nabern site, near Kirchheim-Teck; since 1997. Since 2009 the company has been a fully owned subsidiary of Daimler AG and a worldwide leader in the development of fuel cell and hydrogen systems for vehicle applications. Mercedes-Benz Fuel Cell GmbH is responsible for system concepts and development, component and software development as well as testing and validation. Mercedes-Benz Fuel Cell GmbH also develops all components for 700-bar hydrogen storage.
