BYD and Mercedes to build electric B-Class

August 6, 2010 § Leave a comment

Chinese car-maker BYD is to team up with Mercedes-Benz to build an electric vehicle based on the outgoing B-Class, reports  Autocar. The car will be sold in China only, under a new brand-name. The B-Class’s flat floor is said to be well-suited to accommodating batteries and an electric powertrain, and only minor modification to the front-wheel drive layout is needed.
