I have a 2015 Electric Drive and I'm having a tough time figuring out the scheduled maintenance service intervals. The owner's manual makes a reference to a "Scheduled Maintenance Guide" but I cannot find one for my car anywhere. Anyone have a link?

Is there anything else besides the desiccant cartridge and brake fluid every two years? Coolant? Cabin filter?

See sticky's above. I have posted the guides for the 2013 and 2014 there. Someone is going to send me the 2015 version. When I get it, I'll post that too. Your 2015 ought to be very similar or the same as the 2014. The 2014 owners manual packet came with a manual that listed every item shown, but the 2015 packet apparently didn't include such a thing.

Coolant changes are not mentioned on the sheet as you indicate. The coolant in an electric car does not work very hard at all compared to what it does in an ICE. I haven't checked recently, but awhile ago Mercedes went to a 15 year/150,000 mile coolant. That being said, the ICE Smarts do have coolant service/flush scheduled every four years or 40,000 miles. I don't plan to do mine in my ED's and I am pretty anal about maintenance on my cars.
