2014 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive

Coming to the US in early 2014 will be the All Electric B-Class. This car is the result of a partnership between Daimler and Tesla, which means the lithium ion battery pack is supplied by Tesla. The expected range is 115 miles and the 0-60 time is less than 10 seconds. The electric motor offers 134 horsepower, but the impressive part is the 228 lb-ft of torque. The recharging time for 60 miles worth of range is about 2 hours on a 240 volt level 2 charger. The bad news is the B-Class isn’t coming in any other variants to the US. That means no gas or diesel engines. The production numbers on the Electric Drive is very limited as well. No pricing has been announced.
