2016 Mercedes-Benz B-Class

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz B-Class undergoes a minor weight-savings campaign this year: The previous "Electric Drive" badge on the rear is replaced with a new designation, B250e. Aside from the name change, there's nothing new, and even the price stays the same.

2015 Mercedes-Benz B-Class

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive gains a few styling changes and new standard equipment including Keyless Go and Garmin Navigation. Last year’s optional Range Package is also standard, adding a heated windshield, additional roof insulation and a button for extending the B-Class’ range between charges.

About Mercedes-Benz B-Class

For 2016 the Mercedes-Benz B-Class sounds like a smart idea, and a moderately priced EV-only offering from an established luxury automaker should be a win-win. But the B-Class debuted into a market forever changed by the Tesla Model S. Its 88-mile range is small compared to other EVs available, and there's no range-extending gasoline engine as you'll find in a Chevy Volt or BMW i3. The hatchback shape is unique to Mercedes-Benz, but relatively anonymous in traffic. And while the interior offers premium materials, and the 2016 Mercedes-Benz B250e -- as it's now called -- offers a better driving experience than many other EVs, it's more expensive than plug-in hybrids like the Volt and i3, but without the useful range of a base-model Tesla.
