Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive Debuts in U.S.
Mercedes-Benz has finally entered the electric vehicle market in the U.S. with the debut of the B-Class Electric Drive. The United States will be the first market that gives the general public access to the new plug-in electric vehicle, though it will only be available in 10 coastal states, including California, Oregon, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, and Maine.
The B-Class ED is currently rated by the U.S. Department of Energy with an 87-mile single-charge range, which is comparable to the Nissan LEAF and BMW i3. Its 84 miles per gallon equivalent rating comes in at 84 mpg equivalent, though, which is about 30 percent less than those of other EVs.
The Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive is currently priced at $41,150. With a 177 horsepower, it provides consumers with a combination of fuel efficiency, luxury, and performance that is rare to find. While the B-Class Electric Drive isn’t available at our dealership, we still have plenty of fuel-efficient vehicles at Mercedes-Benz of Easton, so stop in today to see them for yourself!
