While the Mercedes-Benz
B-Class is available in Canada, it never made the journey south to American showrooms. Instead Mercedes’ small-car strategy for the US revolves around the CLA. But alongside the AMG version of that four-door coupe, Benz also brought the production version of its B-Class Electric Drive to the New York show. Previewed in prototype/concept form at the Paris Motor Show last year, the B-Class Electric Drive is now headed for production, joining electrified versions of the Smart
and SLS in Daimler's EV lineup.
