The Mercedes-Benz B-Class has been around for quite a while. That’s why the company decided that it’s about time that they came up with another generation of their famous small car line. Not much is known as to what the company is up to and what the next generation B-Class would look like. That is, until now that photos of the new prototype has leaked, courtesy here of the Motor Report.

As a matter of fact, these spy photographs suggest that the prototype of the next B-Class is almost complete. Mercedes-Benz Head of Development Jorg Prigl for both the A and B Classes admitted during a moment with the press at the Paris Auto Show that the company is indeed working on the next generation B-Class. In fact, they’ve designed their new small car models using their highly advanced Front-Drive Architecture, or also known as MFA.

Prigl added that they’re slapping an intellectual property righted solution over their MFA platform for the A and B classes. Expect the new B-Class to have a higher roof and seating position, to make room for the battery pack, fuel cells, hydrogen tanks and even liquid petroleum gas tanks. So yes–the new B-Class powerplant may range from an internal combustion engine, an electric motor or some form of hybrid technology. The possibilities are endless, so stay tuned for updates.
