The Mercedes B-Class Electric Drive has been upgraded with new and more efficient engine offerings including electric and natural gas options, as well as some styling changes and an updated infotainment system.

This car, which is already available for purchase in the USA, is capable of producing 180 hp and 251 pounds-feet of torque. It consumes approximately 16.6 Kilowatt/hours of electricity per 100 km.

As far as cosmetic changes are concerned, the Mercedes B-Class Electric Drive's front end has been updated to include new daytime running lights and a refreshed bumper that allows for a wider radiator grille. Customers can also choose optional high-performance LED headlamps, while all the models feature LED tail-lights.

The car also now has Mercedes' Connect Me system which allows drivers to view details about their cars while in the vehicle.
