Electric Mercedes A-Class to Debut at Paris Auto Show Using Tesla Battery Tech


As a sideshow to the new 2011 CLS, Mercedes-Benz will display a production version of the A-Class EV at the Paris Motor Show. Called the A-Class E-Cell, the limited-run electric car will be powered by 40kW lithium-ion batteries and additional components provided by U.S. electric car maker Tesla Motors. The vehicle's range is expected to be roughly 124 miles with a solid 214 ft-lbs of torque.

Just 500 cars will be built for trial purposes in Europe next year, with customers leasing the car from Mercedes similar to how BMW handled the MINI E project.

This development further strengthens the working relationship between Mercedes parent company Daimler and Tesla, which already supplies the batteries of the Smart ED.
