Brunnthal/Munich, Germany, January 15, 2010 – Dethleffs and TV star Till Demtrøder rely on the EFOY fuel cell developed by SFC Smart Fuel Cell in the power supply of their concept vehicle “Cross Country”. Assisted by the TV star, well-known from the TV series “Grosstadtrevier” and “Hallo Robbie”, Dethleffs developed the “Globe4 Cross Country” concept vehicle, which is based on the successful Globe4 model. It will be presented at the CMT in Stuttgart, Germany for the first time. The custom-designed vehicle, a showcase of innovative design aspects, combines functional elements with dignified elegance and outdoors experience. The EFOY fuel cell provides reliable independence of the vehicle. It delivers reliable and emission-free energy, and guarantees maximum freedom in remote locations, far from the power grid.

”The Cross Country is a very intimate reflection of my way of life,” asserts Till Demtrøder. The vehicle will be his constant companion on the film set providing a mobile oasis. As well, it will accompany him on tour at horse-riding events providing an elegant ensemble in concert with a horse trailer.

”In this project, we were looking for an independent and ecological power supply solution and we found it in the EFOY fuel cell,” explains Thomas Fritz, Managing Director at Dethleffs. ”The EFOY delivers clean off-grid energy and complements a modern, individual, responsible lifestyle, which is what the Globe4 Cross Country also stands for.”

”We are extremely pleased that the EFOY fuel cell was chosen for this unique project,” so Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Smart Fuel Cell AG. ”The fuel cell provides enormous freedom and the ultimate in comfort because it is a quiet, lightweight and emission-free source of energy – just what more and more RV travelers are looking for.”

The EFOY fuel cell is available from 48 recreational vehicle manufacturers throughout Europe, either preinstalled or as an optional accessory. The fuel cells come in five different models with a charging capacity ranging from 600 to 2,200 watt hours per day. Consuming less than a liter of fuel per kilowatt hour, they are an economical, environmentally friendly, and convenient off-grid power supply for recreational vehicles. The EFOY M5 and M10 fuel cartridges with five and ten liters of fuel, respectively are available at over 1,400 sales points across Europe.
