Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric vs. BMW i3: Which is the Better Electric

With the arrival of the Mercedes-Benz Electric Drive the BMW i3 electric car now has a in the luxury compact segment, but one is better?

The BMW i3 is the first electric from BMW’s new i-sub that will also the i8 plug-in hybrid sports The i3 is the perfect electric car for an urban with its compact hatchback and room for four passengers. The its motivation from a 174-hp motor with 184 lb-ft. of It has a range up to 100 miles, but the available 34-hp, two-cylinder, gasoline-powered Extender generator is available, roughly doubles the i3’s The i3 will reach 0-60 mph in seven seconds and has a top speed of 93

BMW estimates that recharging the i3 take up to 3 hours with the use of a Level 2 charger, but the SAE DC Combo Charging system charges the BMW i3 up to 80% in 20 and 100% in 30 minutes. The i3 starts at before any federal or state tax are applied. The response to the BMW i3 has been so that BMW has recently increased production estimates. Will the B-Class Electric Drive the same sales success?

The Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric arrives this summer and the i3, which is based on a completely new the B-Class Electric Drive is on the standard B-Class that is not in the U.S. The B-Class Electric is also a four-door hatchback the i3, although its rear doors are which will make it for passengers to get in and out.

The B-Class Electric will reach 0-60 mph in 7.9 almost a second slower the i3 and has a limited top speed of 100 mph. It has a of 85 miles, but unlike the i3, which a range extending gas engine, you run out of battery power in the B-Class Drive, you’re stuck, the Mercedes doesn’t offer a backup. Mercedes-Benz estimates for a driving range of about 60 it will take around 2 using

a 240V charger.

The pricing for the i3 and B-Class Electric are nearly identical, with the i3 at $41,350 and the B-Class only $100 more. Only will tell if Mercedes-Benz be as successful with the B-Class Drive as BMW has been with the i3. is just one big difference that may the i3 the better choice. Until the infrastructure is better, i’d rather have the range in the i3 just in case.
