The fastest and most powerful electric car

The Fastest Most Powerful AMG Electric Drive

After a few years of a rumored electric AMG, Mercedes Benz is delivering. You could see it if you were at the Paris Auto Show.

Le Mondial de l’Automobile, the Paris Auto Show is showcasing some promising electric cars, EV and plug-in hybrids, PHEV this year but the star of the show might just be 2014 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Electric roadster.

From Promise To Reality? While Mercedes Benz has only taunted us with a few prototypes over the past 2 years, the company seems ready for the launch the final electric version of its SLS AMG gullwing supercar by the end of 2013. From the SLS AMG E-Cell to the now Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive, the car might not look much different on the outside.

Technically Speaking. Mercedes Benz can here claim the title of the fastest and most powerful almost-production electric car, period. With no less than 740 HP and 737 lb-ft of torque, this is Mercedes’ answer to Porsche’s amazing 918 hybrid. The 0 to 60 mph is achieved in a sprightly manner, less than 3.9 seconds and its electronically limited top speed is capped at 155 mph. Not only is the SLS AMG Electric Drive the most powerful electric car soon-to-be-released, but it is also the fastest.
