The US has been chosen as the first country to receive the B-Class Electric Drive, and today is the day it officially launches. Does that mean some will actually be sold/delivered today? No one knows for sure, but according to InsideEVs, there are some Electric Drives sitting in U.S. ports for quite a while now. This could mean there will be quite a large supply of the vehicle already in the country ahead of the launch date which will make for interesting sales numbers during it’s first month on sale.

The 2014 B-Class Electric Drive will first be available in select states, and will be rolled out to all 50 states “at a later date.”

Pricing starts at $41,450 and has a range of up to 104 miles with the optional range package.
