Leicester City Players Get Merc B-Class ‘Electric Drive’ Cars For Winning Premiership Title

After winning the English Premier League title, all Leicester City players are set to receive a Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive model from Thai businessman and club chairman, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

That’s 30 cars for the 30-man squad that outpaced the likes of Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham this season, winning their first top-flight title in history.

As reported by the Daily Mail, each player will receive his own B-Class Electric Drive, which has an on-road price of £32,670. This means that Srivaddhanaprabha will spend nearly £1 million in total, though we reckon that Merc will give him a discount for the order.

The billionaire has already promised his team an all-expenses-paid trip to Las Vegas, on top of which the players will also enjoy having a £6.5 million pot split between them – under the terms of the club’s bonus agreement with the league.

Considering the type of cars Premier league players (professional athletes in major sports) generally tend to drive, these electric B-Class models will probably end up in the hands of family members or friends. Still, with a driving range of 115 miles (200 km), the players could easily use the cars in order to drive themselves to the training facility and back.
