Re: MBrace and iPhone app both kaputski

Most charging kiosks have an app that lets you monitoring charging rate and KWh charged. That would be my advice to monitoring your B-class electric. Hope that helps.

Cheers,

Re: Parktronic Parking Pilot System

Our 2015 B-class electric has Parktronic. It is a nice to have only. It does parallel park on its own, but the space needs to be generously sized. Otherwise the system may not detect the spot. Furthermore, it can sometimes get too close to the curb and you can end up with wheel rim rash. Lastly, the...

Re: Owner suggestions on buying an 2014 B -ED

Our 2015 B Class electric also experienced a leaky drive unit and our dealer fixed it (not replaced) under warranty about 2 years ago. We never noticed anything wrong with the drive unit, but the dealer mechanic spotted the issue during a 20K service. So assuming your dealer is experienced with B cl...

Re: Remote climate control without MercedesMe

Hi JeffRay,

Are you still able to access your B-class via EVAccess ? I'm no longer able to access. Bummer. I agree the only thing useful was the remote climate control and monitoring charge remotely.

Thanks.

Re: High whistling sound

This sounds perfectly normal. The whining sound comes from the electric motor. Just like our 2015 B class electric (~25K miles).

Re: Radar Assisted Braking/Regeneration

I personally find that the radar-assisted braking system works very nicely, but as you said, it is not a must-have. You still get regeneration when you hit the brakes. I think how fast you drive and ambient temp are probably bigger factors.

Hope this is helpful.

Re: B-class electric to end production

I have a 2015 model and also have found the range not an issue for urban driving. Overall great car to drive. My main concern is future waning dealer service support and potential lack of parts. Can only hope that my B-class will not suffer any major failures that would require specialized Tesla mot...
