Princely visit to Stuttgart: H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco and H.S.H. Princess Charlène visit Mercedes-Benz Museum
"We are very honoured that Prince Albert II and his wife visited the Mercedes-Benz Museum during their first official visit to Germany and have taken the opportunity to find out more about our road to emission-free mobility", commented Dr Joachim Schmidt, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Sales and Marketing.
The Prince and the Princess have a keen interest in issues around environmental protection, sustainability and renewable forms of energy. The exhibition at the Mercedes-Benz Museum, as a place of innovation, not only demonstrates the fascinating history of the Mercedes-Benz brand, but also offers some revealing glimpses into future mobility. The newly designed exhibition room Legend 6 "New Start - The Road to Emission-free Mobility" presents the different drive-system variants - from the optimised internal combustion engine through electric and hybrid drive systems to the fuel cell.
In late 2009 Prince Albert II was able to test the fuel cell-powered Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-CELL and the smart fortwo electric drive for himself on the streets of Monaco.
