Mercedes-Benz Confirms Production of SLS AMG E-Cell (Video)

At the North American International Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz announced its decision to put the SLS AMG E-CELL into series production.

Power comes from a 48 kWh lithium-ion battery which sends power to four electric motors that produce a combined 525bhp and 649 lb-ft of torque. 0-62mph comes in 4.0 seconds, which is just 0.2 seconds slower than the standard petrol powered SLS AMG supercar.

Visual changes compared to the standard SLS AMG include LED headlights, wider radiator grille, a revised hood, a more aggressive diffuser, matte black accents, an extendable front splitter that moves 7 cm downwards at speeds above 120km/h (75mph), and new 10-spoke alloys.

Inside is upgraded with fine Nappa leather upholstery, Alcantara accents, a new instrument cluster, and a revised center console with 25cm touchscreen display.

“The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-CELL is the most technically advanced super sports car in the 125-year history of the automobile, and shows just how fascinating electromobility can be. Our customers will be able to order it from their Mercedes-Benz dealers from 2013 onwards”, said Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars, at the Mercedes press conference in Detroit.
