Mercedes-Benz B-class Electric Drive enters production | Autocar

Mercedes says RHD versions of its first electric car are slated for the UK in 2015. B-class EV will be a rival to BMW’s stylish i3

Mercedes-Benz has kicked off production of the new B-class Electric Drive at its plant in Rastatt, Germany – the same site responsible for the production of the German car maker’s more conventional petrol and diesel-powered A-, B- and GLA-class models.
Set for sale in lef-hand-drive guise in selected European markets during the latter half of 2014, the five-seat MPV has been conceived as a rival to the likes of the BMW i3 and Nissan Leaf. Unlike the uniquely styled electric car competition, however, the new zero emission Mercedes-Benz is based on an existing model – the second-generation B-class.
Full technical details to the new car are yet to be revealed, although Mercedes-Benzquotes a preliminary all-electric range of 124 miles.
At the heart of the new car is a lithium-ion battery produced by Tesla Motors – a company with which Mercedes-Benz has enjoyed close technical ties ever since its parent company Daimler took a minority ten per cent stake in the California-based electric car maker back in 2009.
