Taxi version of Mercedes-Benz B-Class with natural gas drive coming soon
10 September 2013
Mercedes-Benz is presenting the taxi version of the B 200 Natural Gas Drive at the Frankfurt International Motor Show. The Mercedes B 200 Natural Gas Drive offers a reduction in CO2 emissions of more than 16%, markedly cleaner exhaust gases than with gasoline or diesel fuel and fuel costs which are some 50% lower than those for a comparable gasoline-engine model.
When running on natural gas, the fuel consumption of the 115 kW (156 hp) B 200 Natural Gas Drive stands at 4.2 kg/100 km, corresponding to CO2 emissions of 117 g/km.
From 2014 the B 200 Natural Gas Drive will also be available as a taxi version. COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST will feature as standard, further reducing the risk of a rear-end collision in a Mercedes-Benz taxi in future.
Numerous taxi-specific items of equipment, such as the new, patented one-arm taxi roof sign, will additionally be available ex-factory. Other features include a radio frequency antenna with integrated GPS receiver, a hands-free system, various installation spaces for taxi equipment, the Seat Comfort package and integrated child seats in the rear, which avoid the need to have separate child seats on board as accessories.
