Exclusive: Mercedes-Benz B-Class Drive – Range Mode Electric Range By 15%

2015 B-Class Electric Drive

the past few New York Auto this year’s exhibit have a lot going on in the electric segment.

2015 Mercedes-Benz Electric Drive

After some time getting in and out of the seat of a BMW i8. I wandered over to the area, which was right to BMW’s display.  While I spent some time Michael Schweizer, Daimler’s program manager for Mercedes-Benz

The B-Class Electric Drive make its US debut this and will initially be available in ten states (California, Connecticut, Maryland, Maine, New Jersey, New Oregon, Rhode Island, and However, by early 2015, will be expanded to include all states.

Power is derived a Tesla Motors developed consisting of a 100-kilowatt (174-horsepower; 250 torque) electric motor and pack. That’s good to propel the electric Benz zero to sixty miles per in under eight seconds. The Electric Drive can charge at up to on a 240V source, but will not DC Quick charging available, at initially. This is a relatively big in my opinion. Hopefully, Daimler that soon and adds availability on future models.

Of course, all of that has been announced, but I did manage to uncover good news for those in the B-Class Electric Drive. the time it was first announced, has been maintaining the car will a 28kWh battery pack, and would be the total pack Considering the B-Class Electric is about 3,900lbs, that many to assume it would be 80-mile electric car.

If the total pack size was the usable amount of energy likely be about 25kWh and its weight, the range wouldn’t be any than a LEAF or BMW i3.

Now, for the good news. I was to confirm new details previously

1) The amount of usable energy is ; that is not the total pack

2) The 28kWh represents what is in “ Standard Charge Mode, ” is what the car defaults to.

3) Like the Model S, you can select “Range before you begin charging and in so you’ll have more of the pack available, which increase your range by 15%

This means that by Range Mode . the driver likely have 33kWh at disposal. Obviously, this going to encroach on Tesla-range but it will give the B-Class Drive the ability to claim the all-electric range of any electric (aside from Tesla) nationwide.

I expect 100 miles per should be easily attained range mode.
