Electric Mercedes SLS Unveiled With 526-hp

Mercedes SLS E-Cell Delivers 526 Emissions-Free Horsepower | AutoGuide.com News

Mercedes has just unveiled a new fully electric and emissions-free version of its SLS AMG flagship supercar, delivering 526-hp and a 0-60 mph time of just 4.0 seconds. To achieve this impressive output, the SLS AMG E-Cell is bursting with batteries, which are placed in the front firewall, center tunnel and behind the seats. This is possible thanks to the use of lithium-polymer technology that allows for a more flexible battery structure.

Power is then transmitted to the wheels (all four of them) via electric motors at each corner. In total, the vehicle’s output is rated at 526-hp and 649 ft-lbs of torque. The new electric layout did, however, mean that Mercedes engineers had to redesign the front suspension, tossing the double-wishbone setup with a new multi-link arrangement and push-rod dampers.

Other highlights include a front splitter that can be controlled from the cockpit, through a new (and very large) AMG Drive Unit screen that also controls other aspects of the car, while giving updates on the flow of power to each wheel.

Oh, and we almost forgot… it’s coated in what Mercedes calls “AMG lumilectric mango” paint. Automobile Magazine reports that it will be driving the SLS soon and judging by the way this prototype is finished we have to think a production model could arrive in the next few years.
