We’ve managed to track down the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupé Electric Drive at the Paris Motor Show 2012. It’s a 740hp, all wheel drive supercar, the first production ready version to come from the German manufacturer. We sent a photographer to get a closer look!
The SLS AMG Coupé Electric Drive features four independent permanent-magnet synchronous electric motors, each weighing 45 kg and able to achieve a maximum individual speed of 13,000rpm. The battery is a 400 volt liquid-cooled lithium-ion high-voltage battery with 864 lithium-ion cells in total. Total power figures are 552kW (740hp) and maximum torque of 1,000Nm which allows the Electric Drive to accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 3.9 seconds, and on to an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupé Electric Drive will be celebrating its market launch in 2013. The price in Germany (including 19% VAT) will be 416,500 euros! For full details on the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupé Electric Drive, click the embedded link!
