New details are starting to emerge about the 2014 Mercedes B-Class EV.

Automobile News says the car will ride on the MFA platform and feature a Tesla-sourced electric drivetrain. This isn't terribly surprising since Daimler owns a stake in Tesla and the automaker previously announced plans to develop an electric powertrain for an upcoming Mercedes.

In related news, the publication is reporting the production version of the Concept B-Class E-Cell Plus has been delayed. No reason was given, but a source hinted that zero-emission vehicles - like the B-Class EV - have better incentives than range-extended models like the E-Cell Plus.
