The High Voltage Gullwing: Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-CELL

The High Voltage Gullwing: Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-CELL

German carmaker Mercedes-Benz has officially taken the covers off of its electric-powered SLS AMG E-CELL, a powerful luxury sports car that looks to bridge the gap between eco-friendly travel and performance. Powerful traction is provided by four synchronous electric motors with a combined peak output of 392 kW and a maximum torque of 880 Nm. The four compact electric motors each achieve a maximum rpm of 12,000/rpm and placed near the wheels. The results are astounding, with a 0-62mph time of 4 seconds, just narrowly missing the 3.8 time the SLS AMG gets with its 571-hp 6.3L V8 engine.
