Engineered to balance crisp response with smooth composure, the 4-wheel independent suspension of the B250e features a combination of MacPherson struts and wishbones up front, with a four-link design at the rear. Sporty yet supple spring and damping rates, along with rigid yet lightweight components, team up to deliver precise wheel control and reassuring feedback in all conditions.
The B250e front-wheel drive system is an ideal match for the car's sporty demeanor and efficient packaging. Impeccable calibration of the Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) and Electronic Traction System (ETS®) enhances traction under acceleration, while the compact powertrain design also allows for generous cabin and cargo space.
Advanced electromechanical power steering delivers quicker response in corners, easier maneuvering at low speeds, along with precise on-center feel and straight-line stability.
Taut, flowing sculpture wraps the advanced B-Class Electric in a roomy yet aerodynamic body. Sporty wheel arches and side sills accentuate the confident handling of its the low center of gravity. Short overhangs and a sloping hood prioritize its spacious, 5-passenger cabin and cargo versatility. And from its iconic grille to its redesigned taillamps, it carries all the presence and prestige of its Mercedes-Benz family. So while some EVs tend to stick out, the B-Class elegantly stands out.
Aerodynamically designed 17-inch alloy wheels feature 10 flat spokes in a configuration that optimizes airflow for peak efficiency and brake cooling. With a lustrous silver finish, the wheels convey the sporty handling and advanced high-tech powertrain of the B-Class Electric Drive. They're fitted with all-season Extended Mobility tires.
Internet-based access to a number of useful and convenient features puts enjoyment and control of your B-Class Electric Drive as close as your computer or tablet's Chrome™ or Safari® browser. Along with user-defined shortcuts, favorites and preferences, the Vehicle Homepage provides Web-based access to many vehicle features, including charge status and profile, climate control, ECO scores, driving range on a map, and a charging station finder.
In the Mercedes-Benz tradition, every shape and surface of the B-Class cabin is designed to please the eye and invite the touch. Five adults can enjoy comfortable seating on any journey, with generous headroom and legroom. Driving enjoyment is equally emphasized, with ergonomic controls, and a central controller.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
Radar-based technology alerts you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as the driver starts to brake, Active Brake Assist automatically provides the ideal level of braking, to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, it can also initiate braking automatically at a range of driving speeds.
Arguably our most important passive safety feature, all four outboard 3-point seat belts are equipped with Emergency Tensioning Devices (ETDs) and belt force limiters. If a collision exceeds a preset threshold, ETDs instantly remove slack from the seat belts. Belt force limiters allow a slight amount of give in the seat belts, to reduce the peak seat-belt forces on the occupant.
