Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Coupé Electric Drive [VIDEO]

Mercedes AMG have released another video of the SLS AMG Electric expected to hit the road in June 2013

With a power output of 392 kW (526 hp) and 880 N·m (649 lb-ft) of torque, the gullwing with electric drive is part of the company strategy entitled “AMG Performance 2015” which aims to continually reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

Traction is provided by Four synchronous electric motors located in-board of the wheels each achieving a maximum 12,000 rpm.

The electric model accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4 seconds—which almost puts it on the same high level as the SLS AMG with 6.3-liter V8 engine developing 420 kW (571 hp), which can accelerate to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds. However, unlike the combustion engine, torque build-up with an electric motor is instantaneous—maximum torque is available virtually from a standstill.
