Mercedes SLS AMG Coupe goes electric
Mercedes-Benz has unveiled what it's describing as the 'world's fastest' electric car - the SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive.
With a maximum output of 552kW - around 740bhp - and a staggering 1,000Nm of torque, the electric SLS should hit 60mph in 3.7 seconds, going on to an electronically limited 155mph.
A range of 155 miles is touted for the electric SLS, and drivers can either charge up the supercar in three hours via an installed wall-box, or 20 hours through a standard plug socket.
It's not just the SLS that's getting an electric shock - with a battery-powered B-Class also on show.
Due to be launched in 2014, the B should manage a range of 124 miles, and has a maximum speed of 93mph.
