You may not have heard of Mercedes-Benz’s all-electric compliance car — the B series or the 2017 B250e — but it's aiming to be a favorite among EVs on the road today. We weren’t convinced about this greener Benz until a week-long road test proved this zero-emissions small SUV is sexy outside, luxurious inside and offers a surprisingly fast and smooth ride.

That said, Mercedes-Benz would be wise to improve in a few areas considering this 2017 version charges rather slowly and only has an 87-mile range.
