Mercedes-Benz Shows off All Electric Version of the SLS AMG Coupe

All you need to say is the name SLS AMG Coupe to fans of supercars to conjure images of gull wing doors and an epic exhaust note from a massive V8 engine. Now, Mercedes-Benz has unveiled a new version of the SLS AMG Coupe that ditches that V8 engine in favor of an all-electric powertrain. This is the new Mercedes-Benz electric supercar.

The new car is called the SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive and is powered by a quartet of electric motors. Each wheel gets its own motor and the motors combined to produce 740 HP and 737 pound-feet of torque. The electric-powered car is able to hit 62 mph in 3.9 seconds. That’s only a tick behind the gasoline-powered version of the car.

The vehicle also uses a KERS system developed from the Mercedes-AMG Formula One team. Using a standard outlet the car would need 20 hours to recharge fully. A quick charger is available that will fully recharge the battery packs in just three hours. When the car launches it will cost approximately $537,930(USD) – about $300,000 more than its gas-powered older brother.
