Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell



Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell
Power for the E-Cell will be provided by four electric motors Ė all located at the rear of the vehicle Ė that are capable of revving to 12,000rpm. Power for the setup totals 525 horsepower and 649 lb-ft of torque, good enough for a zero-to-62 time of just 4 seconds. For comparison, the gas-powered SLS can hit 62 from a standstill in 3.8 seconds. The carís electric power will be provided by a set of lithium-ion batteries, located behind the cockpit and down the center tunnel. Made up of 324 lithium-ion polymer cells, the E-Cellís batteries are capable of a 480 kW max load.
In addition to mechanical changes, the SLS E-Cell also features a number of styling tweaks to improve aerodynamics. The E-Cellís front apron has been moved forward and features an extendable front splitter that moves downward by as much as 7 centimeters at speeds over 75mph, improving under body air flow. As no exhaust system was needed for the E-Cell, engineers added a new rear diffusor with a steeper angle, increasing the carís overall downforce.
