Special features for 2015
The Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive is similar to the Tesla Model S in that it is a pure electric vehicle rather than a hybrid. It must be plugged in to refuel and does not require gasoline at all. The B-Class is a compact but roomy 5-door hatchback that efficiently makes the most out of its relatively diminutive exterior dimensions. Inside, the B-Class shows off its Mercedes genetics with a well laid-out interior and plenty of the luxury that buyers expect from the brand. With prices starting at just about $42,000, the B-Class Electric Drive will compete with other green cars like the BMW i3, as well as with more conventional hatchbacks and luxury cars. Tax incentives in some markets should also lower the base price of the B-Class, in some cases to below $35,000, putting it within sight of the MINI Cooper, another premium small car.
The Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric seats five and offers five doors, including the hatchback, available in a solitary trim level. Outfitting consists of: 17” premium alloy wheels, daytime running lights (LED), vinyl upholstery, powered front seating, 60/40-split and folding rear seating, remote entry, Bluetooth/USB connectivity, the COMAND interface with 5.8” touchscreen, GPS and a basic audio system. Add-ons can get you things like bi-xenon headlamps, premium Harmon Kardon sound system, leather upholstery, parking camera, collision mitigation system, 7” touchscreen display, iPod integration, heated windshield and more. Under the hood is a 132-kilowatt electric motor that’s powered by a Tesla lithium-ion battery, able to make 174 horsepower and 251 pound-feet of torque.
