CARandDRIVER happily reports that the US will be seeing Mercedes-Benz’s latest forte in the EV world: the B-Class Electric Drive Concept. This confirmation comes from Mercedes-Benz when C/D spoke to them at last week’s Paris Auto Show.
It will be the only B-Class sold here in America and will also be the only Mercedes-Benz branded EV that the US will see for the near future.
Powering the Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive is a 134hp electric motor that also develops 229 lb-ft of twist. The battery back is of lithium-ion content and has been sourced from Tesla. Mercedes-Benz claims that the B-Class ED will travel up to 125 miles on one full charge.
