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.
