mercedes-benz has released the new SLS AMG electrive drive, the next generation of emission-less efficient automobiles.
making its debut at the 2012 paris motor show, four synchronized electric motors produce 552 Kw and a max torque of 1000 Nm,
with an acceleration of 0 to 100 mph in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/hr, making it the world’s fastest electrically driven series
production vehicle. the revolutionary high-voltage battery is the result of collaboration between mercedes-AMG and their high performance
powertrains branch in great britain, where formula 1 experts were able to contribute their extensive know-how into its advanced technology.
the new design features a vibration-free engine and motors that provide maximum torque in an instant. each compact permanent-magnet
electric motor weighs 45 kilograms and is capable of reaching 13,000 rpm. powering each wheel individually allows the torque to be
distributed to a specific area of the car.

the liquid-cooled high voltage lithium ion battery contains 12 modules of 72 lithium ion cells each, with an energy content of 60 kWh
and an electric load potential of 600 kW, the best there is currently in the automotive industry. a convenient quick-charge feature allows
the driver to recharge the vehicle in a very short time from the comfort of the home, and an sight-stage safety design constantly checks
and re-checks the entire electrical system. an aluminum space frame contributes to its light-weight character, with an improved weight
distribution and lower center of gravity. not only focusing on its ability to increase its speed, ceramic composite brakes provide the
perfect even deceleration.
