Luxury carmaker Mercedes-Benz launched its B-Class in 2005 and in a span of eight years, the compact MPV has clocked the million mark on the sales graph globally. In terms of sales, Germany has been the biggest market for the B-Class followed by the China at the second position.

Launched last year, the B-Class is imported in India through the CBU route. The compact MPV comes with two engine options in the country, a 1.6 litre turbocharged petrol engine and the 2.2 litre diesel mill.

“The B-Class is the perfect combination of sporty design, impressive driving dynamics and incomparable driving comfort, that’s what makes it so popular with our customers. What has been particularly noticeable with the current model is that we are reaching the most diverse customer groups, from families with children to active seniors," says Ola Kallenius, member of the divisional board for marketing and sales, Mercedes-Benz.

Next year, Mercedes will introduce two new models of its B-Class MPV, B 200 Natural Gas Drive  which promises low CO2 emissions and running costs. And the B-Class Electric Drive which will have a range of 200 kms, with a generous cabin and seating capacity of five. The car also provides noticeably powerful acceleration, glides along almost noiselessly and is highly suitable for everyday use. The Electric Drive MPV,  effortlessly combines dynamism and driving pleasure with a high degree of practicality and zero local emissions.
