The B-Class Electric Drive concept has made its public appearance at the Paris Motor Show.

 

Announced about two weeks ago, the B-Class Electric Drive concept has made its public appearance at the Paris Motor Show. Mercedes-Benz promises that a production model will be out sometime in 2014 and will have similar characteristics as this concept.

The power of this electrified B-Class is provided by a 134 hp (100 kW) electric motor that has a maximum torque of 228 lb-ft (310 Nm) available right away. The 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint is accomplished in “less than ten seconds”, before hitting a top speed of 93 mph (150 km/h).

With the batteries full, the concept is capable of providing a range of up to 124 miles (200 km). The battery pack can be charged from a regular 230V power outlet, with support for a rapid charging function that can charge sufficient energy for 62 miles (100 km) in less than an hour.

More info can be found in the attached press release.
