Originally introduced as a model in the second-generation B-Class lineup, B Electric Drive arrived in the U.S. as an electric-only model in 2014. After being available for only two model years, the B Electric Drive was discontinued for the 2016 model year.

It was offered in only one body style, 5-door hatchback with seating for five passengers and came in only one trim level. But B Electric Drive was also available for the Premium package, Interior package and Multimedia package. Coming standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, automatic wipers, air-conditioning, keyless entry and ignition, MB-Tex (premium vinyl) upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable front seats with four-way power lumbar support, seat memory settings for up to three drivers, 60/40-split folding rear seats, cruise control, front collision mitigation, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a 7-inch display screen, Mercedes' COMAND interface and mbrace emergency communications, a navigation system with voice controls and many others, B Electric Drive was powered by a front-mounted 132-kilowatt electric motor connected to an underfloor-mounted lithium-ion battery pack, which could produce 177 horsepower and 251 pound-feet of torque. Power was delivered to the front wheels through a CVT transmission.
