Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive First Drive Video


It was a Mercedes-Benz icon it became a performance flagship. Now a messenger for the future: the gullwing’s electric. The SLS AMG Electric Drive car is closing in on series production, the octane-addicted supercar to fit a greener of the future.

Now we’ve had a brief in the South of France, at Circuit Ricard, to confirm that the real thing—though Mercedes is coy about the Electric Drive’s in the U.S.

The Electric Drive first was in 2010, and had been vying an electric version of the Audi R8, the to be the first pure electric into series production. insists its car will be the first, but it unclear whether the R8 e-tron will get a second revival—or if it even be considered a supercar in

If it weren’t for the electric-green paint on the Drive prototype offered up to Car Reports, it would take a to distinguish it from the gasoline-burning SLS AMG GT Series supercars sliding a few hundred yards away on a loop at the Paul Ricard The Electric Drive powertrain easily in the signature shape the past.

The technical transformation? complex.

The pack is liquid-cooled and shrouded in fiber for what Mercedes is zero-intrusion protection. The body carbon-fiber too, with panels hung from an space frame. It’s a of materials and a Ph.D. in materials to integrate them.

Those electric motors more than the typical of electric power. There’s one for wheel, which enables Mercedes dubs AMG Torque It’s true torque motor can vary power to wheel—and it’s all-wheel of the highest order.

The complex of for acceleration and yaw and braking give the orders, telling the motors to or increase energy, to moderate and oversteer as the need arises and goes away.

Add electrohydraulic (not pure electric), a pushrod suspension (developed to the battery packaging), and carbon-ceramic brakes, as well as a layer of and traction control that up the torque-vectoring system, and the SLS AMG Electric earns some supercar of its own.

Power output is pegged at 740 with 738 pound-feet of torque, and the 0-60 mph estimate is 3.6 seconds, a scant few tenths off the gas-powered
