2015 B-Class Electric Drive

The build configurator for the 2015 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive just now fired up.

Since we knew US pricing for the 2015 B-Class Electric Drive for quite sometime now, the only real new news is the cost of the "range package," which InsideEVs exclusively reported on twice in the past.

For only $600, B-Class Electric Drive buyers can press a button prior to charging that will allow for maximum charge, or 17 miles of additional range.

The official EPA figures for the B-Class Electric Drive are not yet available, but Mercedes-Benz claims 85 miles on a standard charge.  We suspect that figure will be accurate +/- 1 or 2 miles.  So, when you add 17 more miles via the range package, you get ~104 miles per 100% charge.
