To go along with the new BMW, I thought I would throw this up here. It’s the new Mercedes SLS AMG Coupé Electric Drive. Yes, an AMG electric car. You might scratch your head at that idea, but it has the numbers to back up that fancy AMG plate: 740 HP – 738 pounds of torque – 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds – 155 mph top speed. According to Top Gear, it’s pretty remarkable.
It is still ridiculously expensive. The ED version will set you back $535,000, vs $200,000 for the standard SLS AMG Coupé and $275,000 for the black series. It also has a 155 mile range and takes three hours to charge. So, we’re looking at the same issues here, but the notable takeaway is that Mercedes is making an electric version of a car from the regular lineup, which is a step in the right direction.
