The B 250 e can deliver up to 235.4 combined mpg and emits just 27 g/km of CO2.

An 8G-DCT automatic transmission comes as standard, along with a 7.4 kW AC on-board charger.

The range-topping AMG Line Premium Plus adds a panoramic sunroof; Multibeam LED headlights; memory seats for driver and front passenger; and Traffic Sign Assist. It costs £38,280.

The only standalone option for the B 250 e – available on AMG Line Premium Plus only – is the £1,495 Driving Assistance package. Driving Assistance includes Active Blind Spot Assist; Active Braking Assist with cross-traffic function; Active Distance Assist Distronic; Active Emergency Stop Assist; Active Lane-change Assist; Active Speed Limit Assist; Active Steering Assist; Evasive Steering Assist; Pre-Safe Plus; and route-based speed adaptation.

Given the B 250 e AMG Line Hatchback emits just 27 g/km of CO2 (WLTP), and has an all-electric range of 42 miles, in the 2020-21 tax year company car drivers will pay only six per cent BIK. For 20 per cent taxpayers, this means just £12 per month.
