Mercedes-Benz has lowered the price of its B-Class battery-electric compact car to $39,900 for the 2017 model year, the automaker has announced.

The B250e arrives with a $1,550 price cut as a carryover model from 2016.

The B250e provides zero-emission driving powered by an electric motor that generates 177 hp and 251 lb.-ft. of torque. The vehicle reaches 0 to 60 mph in 7.9 seconds.

The vehicle's range remains at an EPA-rated 87 miles. Users can achieve a 60-mile range by charging the vehicle on a Level 2 circuit (240 volts) for less than two hours, according to the automaker. Mercedes-Benz offers the Range Plus package that can extend range by adding insulation to the doors and roof to increase climate control efficiency and a range-extending charge function that adds 17 miles of additional range.

The EPA rates the B250e with a miles-per-gallon equivalent of 85 miles in the city and 82 miles on the highway.
