Juergen Schrempp calls engineers to action worldwide * Securing future energy supplies is a pressing problem for mankind In just two years, DaimlerChrysler will become the world's first automaker to launch fuel cell vehicles on the market. That is the scheduled delivery date for new city buses equipped with fuel cell drives. In the same year, DaimlerChrysler's plant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama will start drawing power from a stationary fuel cell manufactured by the company's subsidiary MTU Friedrichshafen. And the first fuel cell passenger cars will be ready to roll another two years after that. These announcements were made by Juergen E. Schrempp, chairman of the DaimlerChrysler Board of Management, at World Engineers Day in Hanover on June 19, 2000.
