BMW i3 & Mercedes B-Class Electric are 3rd/4th on the best electric car


The BMW i3 and Mercedes B-Class Electric are both on the higher
end of the price spectrum here, but they are still about half the price of a Tesla Model S. As an owner of a BMW i3 who I recently met said, it’s half the price but not half the car. I’ve driven the BMW i3 and really loved it, not nearly like I loved the Tesla P85D, but that’s a given. But I haven’t yet driven the Mercedes B-Class Electric. I’ve seen comparisons where the B-Class Electric was much preferred, and I’ve seen comparisons where the i3 was preferred. So, until I have a chance to try out the B-Class Electric, I’m putting it down as a tie.

For the price, I think both cars offer a lot for the owner. They offer a super smooth drive, a lot of space, excellent efficiency (though, the i3 is much better at 124 MPGe compared to 84 MPGe), and almost the same range (81 miles and 84 miles, respectively). Of course, you have a certain level of class with a BMW or Mercedes that you don’t have with most of the other cars on this list. I’m considering an i3 for my family, but I’m certainly eager to try out the B-Class Electric.
