Mercedes-Benz B-Class

Mercedes-Benz is planning to bring a range-extending, electric Mercedes-Benz B-Class to the US.

Speaking with Automotive News, Dr. Joachim Schmidt said the eco-friendly variant would be the only B-Class offered in America.
Recently previewed by the Concept B-Class E-CELL PLUS, the range-extended electric vehicle could use a 136 PS (100 kW / 134 hp) electric motor, a 68 PS (50 kW / 67 hp) three-cylinder petrol engine and a lithium-ion battery. If this pans out, the model could have an electric-only range of 100 km (62 miles) and overall range of approximately 600 km (373 miles).
