Although full pricing for option packages and standalone extras hasn’t yet been detailed, Mercedes-Benz has released that the 2014 B-Class Electric Drive starts at $42,375.

Standard equipment on the 2014 B-Class Electric Drive will include power front seats, cruise control, Active Parking Assist, Collision Prevention Assist, Attention Assist, LED daytime running lamps, and a 5.8-inch display screen with navigation system and USB port.

Harman Kardon premium audio will be one major standalone option. So will the Radar-Based Recuperation (smart regen) system, which allows you to fine-tune regenerative braking (as well as adding an automatic mode based on radar inputs). Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keeping Assist will also be at extra cost, potentially packaged with the smart regen feature. A full-featured COMAND system with larger seven-inch screen, as well as Parktronic with Advanced Parking Assist together round out the list of extras.

One other major option is Range Plus, which adds 3 kWh of battery capacity to what’s otherwise the same battery and physical setup. With the press of a button, owners may on occasion get an additional 10 to 15 percent of range (8 to 18 miles)

As with most electric vehicles, there’s an app-controlled pre-conditioning system that allows you to bring your vehicles (cool it or heat it) to a comfortable temperature before you disconnect it from the charger and get in.

Conclusion

You won't miss out by going electric; Mercedes-Benz has done an excellent job in assuring that the B-Class Electric Drive has many of the features and options of its gasoline and diesel vehicles.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
