Mercedes-AMG SLS E-Cell (AMGee whiz!) To Begin Production in 2013
Vehicle in the newsMake/Model: SLS AMG E-Cell
Mercedes has announced that production on the SLS AMG E-CELL electric super sporter will begin in 2013.
The car, featured here on FutureCars a few months ago, has so far largely been missed by the production-developer's eraser. A malady that often plagues great cars in design concept before they are actually built (e.g. the Chevy Volt).
The powerful E-CELL will have four motors, 392kW of power (649lb-ft/880Nm torque) and a 48kWh battery pack, which will be modular to allow for easy replacement.
And so ...This awesome car still doesn't have a price tag, but Mercedes has now firmly committed to a production time frame.
