Zero Emission Electric Drive
2014-B-CLASS-EV-001-CCF-D.jpg

85 miles of range. 100+ years of depth.

Mercedes-Benz pioneered its first all-electric vehicles in 1906. A century later, the B-Class Electric Drive is a new first among EVs, because it's foremost a Mercedes-Benz. Engineered not just as an alternative to gasoline, it's also a roomy, versatile alternative to EV compromises, letting you enjoy up to 85 miles of range in style and comfort.

Driving range may vary based on terrain, temperature, driving style and other factors.

Industry-leading safety

Not just class-leading safety. Industry-leading.

Of all the EVs in its class, only the B-Class is a Mercedes-Benz. Standard safety systems include such breakthroughs as ATTENTION ASSIST® to help sense a drowsy driver. Standard COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST uses radar to help the driver avoid rear-end accidents with traffic ahead.

Preparing for home charging
2014-B-CLASS-EV-002-CCF-D.jpg

A little advance planning makes home charging easy.

Say goodbye to your gas station. You can "refuel" your B-Class Electric Drive by plugging it in at home. And while you can use an ordinary 120-volt outlet, upgrading your garage to a 240-volt station can cut your charge time to just a few hours. Check with your local power utility to learn about their incentives and other EV assistance programs.

Radar-based regeneration

The first EV that uses radar to maximize its range.

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.

Braking system does not adjust driving speed or following distance. Please read your Operator's Manual.


Performance

Excellent range, easy charging.

It might be the first electric car that recharges its driver.

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.

Charging stations are easy to locate via the mbrace mobile app or Vehicle Homepage.

Driving range may vary based on terrain, environmental conditions, temperature, driving style and other factors. Charging times are estimated and may vary by location and equipment.

Smooth, strong and silent

Powered by electricity. But still fueled by passion.

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. So you get the full reward of its performance at any speed. Think of it as the strong, silent type.

Nimble, secure handling

By moving everything lower, it elevates your confidence.

Clever packaging creates a compact 5-door with midsize room and sport-sedan fun. The energy module, including its high-capacity battery, is spread out under the cabin floor, for a substantially lower center of gravity. So even with its commanding view and generous space, it offers the nimble, sporty and stable handling of a Mercedes-Benz.


Design

Flexibility for five

Surprise. A perfect fit for you, your stuff, and your life.

Within its sleek yet space-efficient 5-door design, five passengers enjoy roomy accommodations, plus the versatility of folding rear seats and a wide-opening hatch. The electric drivetrain is minimized under the cabin floor and short hood. As a result, the people space can be maximized, for the comfort and safety expected of a Mercedes-Benz.

Easy on the eyes
2014-B-CLASS-EV-005-CCF-D.jpg

Science. Without looking like a science project.

Who says an EV has to look like it came from outer space? The B-Class is designed around its inner space, and engineered to feel glued to the road. Its sculpting is aerodynamic. Its stance is athletic. And its details are iconic, from its grille to its LED taillamps. So it's sporty, elegant and fresh, without a hint of strange, eccentric or far-fetched.

Rich in its rewards

Genuine. There's simply no alternative to quality.

From its sporty multifunction steering wheel to its power front seats with memory, the B-Class Electric Drive delivers premium features befitting a Mercedes-Benz. Available luxuries let you tailor its stylish cabin even further, from hand-finished leather and wood, to driving assists that watch your blind spot or even park the car hands-free.
