Find quality, comfort and zero emissions with the Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive. This premium, compact MPV boasts a relaxing, refined interior, with a versatile seating setup and plenty of space.
But practicality, flexibility and a superior setting aren’t all you get with this battery-powered Mercedes-Benz, which offers an impressive, fun and rewarding drive from its 132kW electric motor. Boasting 176bhp and 340 Nm of torque, the B-Class Electric Drive can reach 62mph from a standing start in just 7.9 seconds, powering up to its top speed of 99.5mph. It is the perfect partner for taking on the city streets, but is equally at home when cruising on the motorway.
Remarkable off the mark, seriously fun to drive, with deft handling and impressive power, this electrically-powered, classy creation doesn’t disappoint. Powered by a lithium-ion battery, the B-Class Electric Drive makes for a quiet journey wherever you drive, further quelled by exceptional aero-acoustics.
Take safety seriously with the Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive, which offers extensive all-round protection and comes complete with various advanced assistance systems.
With a five-star rating from Euro NCAP, plus numerous airbags, stability control and Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), the B-Class Electric Drive has been designed to stay safe on the road.
Collision Prevention Assist Plus with Adaptive Brake alerts if you’re too close to the vehicle in front, braking if necessary. Attention Assist warns if you need a break from driving, and ESP Curve Dynamic Assist boosts agility and increases handling safety.
Further add to the B-Class Electric Drive’s safety with the optional Driving Assistance Package, which comes complete with Blind Spot Assist to monitors the vehicle’s surroundings, Lane Keeping Assist, which warns you if you stray from your lane and the Pre-Safe system, which pressurises the brakes and tightens seatbelts if an unavoidable impact is detected.
You may be expecting the need to compromise on load capacity with the B-Class Electric Drive, but Mercedes-Benz has designed this model exceptionally well so luggage space isn’t reduced, housing the battery around a resourceful ‘Energy Space’ within the vehicle’s sandwich floor.
Thus, benefit from a load capacity of roughly 500 litres that expands to 1,456 litres with the seats folded flat.
In the comfortable, spacious cabin, find Artico upholstery and state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz technology for all occupants to enjoy. There is even the option to add ambient lighting, heated memory seats, leather upholstery and a panoramic glass sunroof to enhance the interior, plus keyless-go ignition and entry for that extra sophistication.
This innovative model is incredibly efficient with its electric power, featuring selectable ECO+, ECO and Sport driving modes offering varying balances of power and economy.
ECO+ restricts the power supply to 70kW but at the other end of the scale, Sport offers the full 132kW. Dynamic, agile, responsive and comfortable, find a gratifying drive in the B-Class Electric Drive.
It’s entertaining too, with an 8-inch tablet-style central media display, pre-installation for Garmin Map Pilot navigation system, Bluetooth for phone and audio connectivity and much, much more.
