The new generation Mercedes- Benz B- Class will be soon coming to the United States of America. Not all but at least one of the Models of the line will be definitely launched in the American states soon.
According to the inside source at the Mercedes Benz's parent company the Daimler AG, the electric version of the compact MPV will be sooner or later available for sale in the American States starting in the year 2014.
According to the source, the B Class EV will use the battery packs, an electric motor and other components of the car that have been sourced from Tesla Motors which have earlier supplied the electric powertrain for the second generation Smart ForTwo EV.
The initial plans of Mercedes were to offer a hybrid version of the B-Class with an internal combustion engine that would act as a range-extender but later plans changed and the company decided to manufacture a pure-electric model that would me more feasible looking at the current scenario.
The zero emission vehicles are more reassuring and possess higher incentives than the vehicles that come into the category of range extenders and use high priced fuels. The second generation B-Class’s EV version has not been revealed yet but the pictures of the vehicle are wired on net.
