Even though the previous post from us was also about this great German automaker, we still were thrilled by this new information that we got, therefore we share it with you now. The company Mercedes-Benz for the upcoming Paris Motor Show will bring a prototype of an electric B-Class. Novelty has an electric motor which develops 134 horsepower and 310 Nm of torque, and which allows the car to go without recharging up to 200 kilometers. According to the “Mercedes”, the installation of the batteries had no effect on the free space in the cabin, as they are installed under the floor in front of the rear axle.

Batteries can be recharged from a 230-volt outlet or on a workstation. The time it takes to complete “fueling” batteries, is not yet specified. Two years later, the electric B-Class will be launched into production and will be joined in the range of Daimler to other electric trucks – supercar Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell and the “Smart” on studio Brabus. At last year’s Frankfurt motor show the automaker introduced another clean version of B-Class. It was equipped with a 100-kilowatt electric motor and a three-cylinder gasoline engine of one liter, used to recharge lithium batteries while driving. With full fuel tank of a car cruising range was 600 miles.
