Tesla's Elon Musk doesn't think hydrogen-fuel cell vehicles are feasible for a number of reasons. Still, the tech has its supporters and the latest company to back it is Mercedes.

Motoring says that the automaker is looking at a "2017-ish" time frame to bring a model to market. The information was extracted from the brand’s sales and marketing boss, Ola Kallenius, who also let slip that the car housing this hydrogen tech would most likely be an SUV.
