A 100% Mercedes-Benz that’s also 100% electric.
An optional radar-based regenerative braking system is an EV first. When braking or coasting, a radar sensor watches traffic ahead and adapts the brakes to recapture the optimal amount of energy. Seamless and silent, it helps the driver get more miles from every charge. Steering wheel-mounted paddles offer manual control of recuperation, too.
Even with an impressive range of up to 85 miles per charge, the fun-to-drive B-Class will energize you, too. It’s easy to maneuver, eager to merge, suitable for most any commute, and simple to plug in and charge. Just two hours at a common public charging station can juice up its lithium-ion battery enough to go up to 60 miles.
Without a drop of gasoline or a wisp of tailpipe emissions, the B-Class Electric Drive whisks to 60 mph in under 8 seconds. Its advanced electric motor generates 251 lb-ft of torque (comparable to our best-selling sedan) starting at 0 rpm.
