Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive Concept heading to ParisSeptember 19, 2012 by: Deepak
Mercedes-Benz is all set to bring the B-Class Electric Drive Concept to the upcoming Paris Motor Show, hoping the vehicle will get a satisfying response, enough to send the vehicle into production.
According to 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 vehicle gets its power from a 135 hp electric motor, and could manage to go upto 200 km (124 miles). The electric motor is powered by a battery pack.
