Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell Powering up in Detroit

Mercedes debuted their newest electric vehicle in Detroit. If you thought the electric supercar thing would not catch on…. you were wrong (as you always are)! Mercedes has in fact started what they call “AMG Performance 2015″ where they will continue to incorporate electric vehicles into their line-up.

Mercedes was able to bring the performance numbers extremely close to its flagship super car the SLS AMG. Which was extremely necessary when trying to convince true car lovers.

The New Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell is a power version of the SLS AMG supercar. This car has a power of 525 HP, and torque of 880 Nm.

Energy sources obtained from a total of 4 pieces of electric motors which are placed near the wheel so that it becomes a model four-wheel drive. SLS AMG E-cells to accelerate from 0-100 km / h reached in 4 seconds. The time just 0.2 seconds slower than SLS AMG V8, 6300 cc, 571 hp.

Mercedes claims that SLS AMG E-Cell is a part of corporate strategy entitled “AMG Performance 2015″ which aims to continue to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

Electricity stored in lithium-ion battery capacity of 400 volts could also be coupled with braking.

The battery was placed in front of the firewall, and behind the seats, in order to balance the weight distribution of vehicles in order to remain stable.

SLS AMG Mercedes-Benz E-Cell plans to enter the market later in 2013.
