Re: Activating range plus function

Thanks for the input, Glenn. I've pressed the magic button and, as you say, it seems to make hardly any difference. We're around freezing here; -3 deg Celcius at night and around +2 during the day. The range currently is 58 miles on a full, boosted, charge. Presumably the battery performance is degr...

Activating range plus function

Does anyone know how this works? The handbook says: RANGE PLUS charges when: you have activated RANGE PLUS via the centre console prior to charging and the high-voltage battery is fully charged. So do you have to get back into the car after it’s fully charged, switch on the ignition, hit the range p...

Re: Charging Cable

Many thanks for taking the time to explain the points, Jeff. It’s a steep learning curve for me. But as I lease the car, maybe I’ll hit the boost button and just smile!

Re: Charging Cable

Is it better then to look at the charge level meter rather than the range? I assume the %age charge indicates the true state of charge? Also, my handbook says that using the boost button will damage the HV battery. Is this so?
Thanks, Mike

Re: Charging Cable

Great - I'm glad you got the cable sorted. Regarding the range, 70 miles is typical during winter months - don't worry! I've had mine only since Christmas and apparently the range will improve once warmer weather arrives. You can expect it to take 9 hours to charge using the 13 amp plug, or 4 - 5 ho...

Re: Charging Cable

Hello, be careful as it looks that you are being diddled! The B Class Electric has two cables supplied as part of its inventory and you should insist that both cables are supplied FOC. Here is the inventory list: * Charging cable for household socket (mode 2) – 4 m, 13 A, coiled * Charging cable for...

Re: 12V battery charging problems - no-start

Thanks JeffRay, I love the car but this total deletion of the 12-volt battery is a complete mystery to MB (here in the UK) and to ChargeMaster - hence my post. I have done extensive testing with a multitude of charging permutations over many weeks. My local MB dealers say they have never seen this b...

Re: 12V battery charging problems - no-start

Hello, I've come very late to this forum and topic, having just purchased my B Class EV. Here's the scenario: 1. When the car is left plugged-in overnight to the Mercedes garage 3-phase charger, using the cable that came with the car, the car was fully-functional afterwards. The car sent a message s...
