Arriving this month, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive is the first fully electric vehicle to debut under Daimler's 3 pointed star logo (we can't say first electric car in general from the company, as parent Daimler already makes the smart ED).
As we recently aired a lot of new VW e-Golf commercials of late (here, here, here and here), some of the community (MTN Ranger specifically) have felt we should spread the love to other plug-ins looking to a cut themselves out a piece of the US market.
Just as a reminder, the B-Class Ed - from $41,450, has an all-electric range of 104 miles (that is if you spring for the optional range package for $600) - 87 miles without.
The official launch happened earlier this month (July 15th) and we are anxious to start reporting monthly sales for the B-Class ED - look for those results on Friday, July 31st!
For now the Mercedes is only available regionally (CA, CT, MD, OR, NJ, NY, RI and VT), but Daimler promises the product nationwide in "early 2015".
