Electric Version Of Mercedes SLS Gullwing

2012-03-04T23:55:40.745-08:00

We are all excited for a new SLS Gullwing coupe version. We want to see the latest components to compile and see how well it runs. This week we learned that there are other surprises that we enjoy.

Mercedes-Benz plans to build an electric version of the new SLS Gullwing coupe. This new car will drive all four wheels, with individual motors at each corner. Each engine will be installed aboard the suspension. Energy is stored in the first 48 kWh lithium-ion battery coolant runs down the center console.

Production of electric drive system has 526 hp and 649 lb.-ft. According to the automaker will have enough energy for 0-62 mph acceleration in four seconds. Why choose such an exotic car? According to Managing Director of Mercedes-AMG wanted to "redefine the sports car" and the even more exciting than before.

AMG E-cells is performed using water-cooled, high-voltage battery, which is the most advanced. It uses 324 lithium-ion polymer cells in a modular format - it is easy to replace if necessary. The battery is 400 volts and recharged every time the brake and drive.

Other sections are used to piece it all together, including lawn style ceramic composite brake discs and carbon fiber. It is much more light than standard cast iron disc brakes are used in most cars. Carbon fibers are used without the weight of the car will fall and help you faster and more responsive to the needs of drivers.

So far it seems like he might succeed! Currently we have no information about the electric version will be released. While some speculate that we could not see the final product in 2015. We also have no idea about how many and what price range. We know that regular SLS Gullwing will be about $ 200,000, which means that the electric version would cost more.
