Lightbulb Mercedes-Benz attempts to make an invisible car

Filed under: Europe, Technology, Videos, Hatchback, Mercedes-Benz, Electric



Automakers are engaged in a constant struggle to get their products noticed.

Mercedes-Benz recently took a different approach for the upcoming hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, the F-Cell.
