2015 Mercedes Benz B Class Electric Drive Overview
This is the only Mercedes Benz electric vehicle sold in United States. It looks a lot like regular B class model, but it has some changes that make it more fuel efficient. It offers much less luxury than some other vehicles made by the same manufacturer, but that’s mostly because its size and electric powertrain doesn’t allow it to come with too many luxurious features.

It is aimed to compete with the Rolls Royce crossover that’s also been announced, but we still don’t know when is it going to be released.

Would you like to go to Pluto? Me too, unfortunately there’s no highway up to there, but you sure can visit Lowell observatory in Flagstaff, place from where Pluto and its moon Charon were discovered. Small town in Arizona is not the only Flagstaff, other one is on its journey through space at this very moment, This place is called 2118 Flagstaff asteroid and although it doesn’t have railroad, demolition derby, symphony or lumberjacks it was named after the original Flagstaff, Arizona. This town went through a long journey from looking like a “third rate mining camp” as famous journalist Sharlot Hall called it on one of her bad days in 1901, to becoming one of the most important cultural oases in The Copper State, where 6 foot metallic pinecone is dropped from the roof of a hotel building as part of some strange New Year’s Eve celebration custom.
For a long time there were rumors spreading around the information that Hyundai plans to introduce truck vehicle to the American market.

In the middle of all this Hyundai decides to promote its mini-truck with crossover features and unibody structure.
New model comes with the new engine and cosmetic changes in the exterior styling that made it almost the same as the regular Sonata models. This means that hybrid model lost its flashy and elegant front fascia, and the received the new front styling that will increase its aerodynamics and reduce the drag. There are also some smaller changes in the interior segment.
It is unbelievable how short sighted American buyers are, standing in lines for buying a gasoholic pickup truck just few years after the end of Economic Crises. But who care about that anyway. Important thing is that new Raptor is out and it was presented on 2015 North American International Auto show. New generation comes with a new turbocharged engine, that brings much more power and torque and there’s also much more off-road capability, if that is even possible, and few cosmetic changes on the outside, all packed into the new construction that was taken from the new generation F150 pickup truck.
