Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive Heading to Paris Motor Show 2012

Mercedes-Benz has a joint venture with Tesla and this car has been developed under this JV. The electric version of the car will feature an electric motor capable of generating maximum power output of 134bhp. The lithium-ion battery will be placed in the floor in front of the rear axle, which will be provided by Tesla. With this there will be no extra space occupied and the B-Class electric will offer the same room as the regular B-Class. The car will run approximately for 200km with a fully charged battery.

We have got an official statement by Mercedes-Benz, “Similarly to the successful B-Class models with combustion engines, the battery-powered Concept B-Class Electric Drive also combines a comfortable and enjoyable driving experience with full suitability for everyday and family use. The so-called Energy Space in the floor of the vehicle in front of the rear axle ensures that the concept vehicle offers the same generous and variable space inside as the current series production models. The Energy Space provides a safe and space-saving means of accommodating the powerful lithium-ion battery which also has a positive effect on the vehicle’s centre of gravity.

The car will be showcased at forthcoming Paris Motor Show and might be launched in selected markets in 2014.
