Mercedes-Benz B-Class

Mercedes-Benz seems to have confirmed that an electric Mercedes-Benz B-Class will come to the US.

An unnamed inside source at Mercedes-Benz’s parent company Daimler AG told German publication Automobilwoche that an electric version of the compact MPV will go on sale in America from 2014.

The company insider said that the B-Class EV will make use of battery packs, an electric motor and other components sourced from Tesla Motors, which had also supplied the electric powertrain for the second generation Smart ForTwo EV.
