Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG eDrive revealed

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

Last week we spoke about the new SLS AMG with electric drive, an exciting super sports car with zero-emission high-tech drive. Mercedes-Benz revealed today its expertise in the development of alternative drive solutions for high-performance super sports cars.

Power of this vehicle comes from four electric motors with a combined peak output of 392 kW (525 hp) and an impressive 880 Nm of torque.

According to the manufacturer the four four electric motors are positioned near the wheels, substantially reducing the unsprung masses compared to wheel-hub motors.

One transmission per axle transmits the power. This intelligent all-wheel-drive system allows dynamically optimised power transmission without any losses by means of Torque Vectoring -- in other words the specifically targeted acceleration of individual wheels.

The SLS AMG with electric drive incorporates a liquid-cooled high-voltage lithium-ion battery of modular design with an energy content of 48 kWh and a capacity of 40 Ah.

The 400-volt battery is charged by means of targeted recuperation during braking whilst the car is being driven.

The vehicle can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4 seconds, putting it on the same high level as the SLS AMG with a 6.3-litre V8 engine developing 420 kW/571 hp. Daimler AG and Evonik Industries AG, will provide the battery technology required in future.
