The stage at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show was in a way set by Mercedes Benz with their announcement that they would be putting into production the SLS AMG E-Cell model. This was part of their company’s “AMG Performance 2015” policy in which their endeavor was to produce cars that had lower emission levels and higher fuel efficiency.
Chairman of the Mercedes-AMG GmbH, Ola Källenius explained, “We take social responsibility very seriously and with the SLS AMG E-CELL we are demonstrating a further milestone in our “AMG Performance 2015″ strategy. It is our goal to continually reduce the fuel consumption and emissions of new models in the coming years, while at the same time enhancing the core brand value of performance.”
The engine of the car delivers 525 hp and makes the car accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds. This car would be one of the fastest cars in the electric sports car genre that would be available in the market.
