Re: She's Gone (hall & oates)

Hey all, After 6 years, no more B250e for Jeff Ray. Turned it in and now EV-less for a spell. It has been a fun run, albeit only 18K in total over six years. With covid and now Medicare eligible, less driving so we intend to make do with our ICE cars. Out of habit, will log in and see if I can add ...

In the photo below the front of the car would be to the left. The T90 for the desiccant access is on the left.
I understand that foot (boot) prints might be on the packing case wood during construction... but on the battery tray?

Peter,

Re: 2017 Options & Standard Features

I know this is not a question for here, and I know people will say this question has been (sort of) asked & answered before... But after digging, I can't find a real "answer" -- maybe someone knows for "sure"? dot4f, Great questions! We'd need an inside person at MBUSA to research this topic, until...

Re: Buying an off lease model.

I have been impressed at the speed of charging the B using the lectron adapter on the home Tesla EVSE. 2-2.5 hours to charge the B. I am still reprogramming my brain after driving the Model S long distances and charging the car at 50 miles remaining. So far I have not driven the B below 20 miles, I...

Re: All settings reset every time I turn off the car

Has anyone found a way to SAVE SETTINGS? Short answer is no, there does not appear to be a way to save driver preferences, beyond those for seat position memory and outside mirrors memory, plus some data you can program into the cellphone and optional NAV package. Other driver preferences, such as ...

Re: California resident wants to buy B250, please help

Hi guys, great forums, btw. I just want to ask B250 owners before I commit myself to 2017 B250. Welcome! "great forum" - indeed, great vehicle! Well appreciated by those of us driving one, in spite of MBUSA's decision to cancel the B250e program. The biggest "hardware risk" is the failure of the MU...

Re: Next EV?

Test drove a 2020 Mini Electric the other day just for giggles. It is VERY quick, has one pedal driving Not sure what "one pedal driving" means - lifting off the accelerator slows it down due to regen braking? Looks like it has a 32.6 kWh High Voltage Battery Pack. Good to see it has both AC (L1/L2...

Re: my 2014 B Class is a lemon, HUGE ripoff

My lemon B class electric update June 12: "Hona", a customer service person at MBUSA in Atlanta, murmurs sympathy but offers no help at all. She is worthless. The Ft Laud MB dealer has offered me $5000 if I pay $7000, which is unacceptable for many reasons. Biggest is that this is a Mercedes caused...

Re: Electrek article about Model B motor repairs

This article https://electrek.co/2020/06/12/when-an-out-of-warranty-ev-fails-who-you-gonna-call/ in Electrek has a nice discussion of the fatal motor problems afflicting some Model B's. Tony Williams of "QC Charge" in California gives the best explanation I've seen of this problem. I believe Tony h...
