B-Class Electric Drive

Mercedes-Benz has added full electrification to the popular MPV, which borrows its drive system from Tesla and uses a 28kWh lithium-ion battery stored under the rear floor to provide a claimed 124-mile range. The driver can select from three modes to get the best blend of performance and efficiency – Economy Plus provides 84PS and limits speed to 68mph; Economy gives 134PS; while Sport gives access to the full 181PS which means a top speed of 99mph and 0-62mph in 7.9 seconds.

Recharging takes around 9 hours from a domestic socket.  Still a refined and well-finished offering, the battery location also means you benefit from a 500-litre boot space.

On sale: 2015
