US-Spec Mercedes B-Class Production Videos From Rastatt Assembly
A few weeks ago we spoke to Mercedes to get an update on the US release of the B-Class ED, or Electric Drive, and the company updated us that initial US production was more than on track and deliveries would being in “mid-summer”.
Well, at least for CA, CT, MD, OR, NJ, NY, RI and VT. The rest of America has to wait until early 2015…but at least it is coming nationwide.
After which, the B-Class ED will be offered in select European markets, including Germany, before year’s end. The UK (as always) has to wait a little longer for the RHD variant, and won’t see the ED until the first quarter of 2015.
Mercedes has already celebrated “Job 1” – or first production vehicle off the line, for the B-Class Electric Drive at its Rastatt factory in Germany, but now we have some (or rather a lot actually) video of US-spec EVs rolling of the line for you to enjoy.
First video features a detailed look at the charge port installation:
