4dr HB Electric Drive
Starting at $41,450 | Starting at 0 MPG City - 0 MPG Highway
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 which 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 buyers expect from the brand. With prices starting at just about $42,000, the B-Class Electric Drive will compete with other green cars such as 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 Drive is brand new for 2014. It represents Mercedes' entry into the green car segment, aimed primarily at drivers who want to move lots of people and their stuff in peace and quiet with minimal environmental impact.
The 2014 B-Class Electric Drive is powered by an electric motor that makes 177 hp and 256 pound-feet of torque. Though the B-Class is no sports car, but its relatively powerful motor should ensure that the vehicle doesn't suffer from being a slow-poke, like many of the other green cars on the market. Mercedes claims a range of about 85 miles for the B-Class, making it ideal for buyers who may have a longer commute and proving that the vehicle is more than just a city car. In addition to having pretty good range, the B-Class is also quick to charge, with Mercedes claiming that a 2-hour charge should be enough for about 60 miles of driving.
