With the SLS AMG E-CELL, Mercedes-AMG is providing a glimpse of its latest development project - a powerful and locally emission-free super sports car. Finished in fluorescent "AMG lumilectric magno" paint, the gullwing offers a glimpse at a possible small series production vehicle and at the same time reflects the innovative strength and development expertise of the AMG performance brand.

"We take social responsibility very seriously and with the SLS AMG E-CELL we are demonstrating a further milestone in our "AMG Performance 2015" strategy. It is our goal to continually reduce the fuel consumption and emissions of new models in the coming years, while at the same time enhancing the core brand value of performance", explains Ola Källenius, chairman of the board (from 1 July 2010) of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. With the SLS AMG E-CELL, the performance brand of Mercedes-Benz is launching a totally innovative drivetrain for super sports cars, reaching new territory in this market segment.

The ground-breaking drive system boasts some impressive highlights: powerful traction is provided by four synchronous electric motors with a combined peak output of 526 hp and a maximum torque of 649 lb-ft. The four compact electric motors each achieve a maximum rpm of 12,000 rpm and are positioned near the wheels. As a result, compared with wheel-hub motors the unsprung masses are substantially reduced. One transmission per axle transmits the power.

The SLS AMG E-CELL Accelerates from Zero to 60 mph in 4 Seconds

When it comes to dynamics, the electrically-powered SLS AMG makes a statement: the gull-wing model accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 4 seconds - which almost puts it on the same high level as the SLS AMG with 6.3-liter V8 engine developing 563 hp (0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds).
