The new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell was discovered


Last year at the Detroit Motor Show, German carmaker Mercedes-Benz revealed for the first time the SLS AMG E-Cell Concept. Back then, the specialists said it was the most technically advanced sports car they have ever built, and in the 125-year history of the automobile. This is the reason why, also declared that a production version of the model will be available soon. Now, Mercedes-Benz confirmed their plans and apparently, the SLS AMG E-Cell concept will become reality. The specialists plant to introduce it on the market sometime next year. Even though 2012 is still here, the new production version of the model was caught with no camouflage what so ever. As you can clearly see, the all-electric supercar looks exactly like the V8-powered version. The only visible difference is the absence of the exhaust pipes and of course, the E-CELL decals situated between the two fins which are mounted on the air outlets behind the front wheels. In the carbon fiber transmission tunnel the engineers placed a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery which will offer power to the all-electric version of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell model. The electric motors are placed near the wheels and in the end the car will be capable of generating 562 horsepower and 880 Nm of torque. The engineers also offer a new pushrod-operated front suspension and the new supercar features all-wheel drive and not the rear-wheel drive the carmaker used us with. To improve traction and handling, the carmaker offered an active torque vectoring. In the end, the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell will be capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds. Even if it is 0.3 seconds slower than the updated version of the 6.2-liter V8, keep in mind, the new SLS AMG E-Cell supercar has ZERO CO2 emissions. carscoop.blogspot
