Mercedes-Benz shows the Fascination of electric mobility - SLS AMG E-CELL at the Detroit Motor Show

Detroit – Just ahead of the 125th birthday of the automobile on January 29, its inventor is setting further groundbreaking accents in the field of electromobility. At the North American International Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz today announced its decision to put the SLS AMG E-CELL into series production. The battery-electric drive super sports car generates 392 kW (525 hp) and 880 Nm (649 lb-ft) of torque.

The second piece of “electrifying” news – January 29 will see the official starting signal of the “Mercedes-Benz World Drive”, the first journey around the world with fuel cell electric drive. Under the motto “125! Years of Innovation”, Mercedes-Benz is showing in Detroit a complete spectrum of highly efficient and clean drives for the automobiles of today and tomorrow.


“The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-CELL is the most technically advanced super sports car in the 125-year history of the automobile, and shows just how fascinating electromobility can be. Our customers will be able to order it from their Mercedes-Benz dealers from 2013 onwards”, said Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars, at the Mercedes press conference.

Zetsche delivered his words on the redesigned Mercedes show stand, which offers a three-dimensional experience of the Stuttgart automaker’s multi-faceted driveline strategy on an area of almost 1,800 square metres. “Our stand architecture vividly shows how single-mindedly we are moving forward,” continued Zetsche. “We are driving on a multi-lane highway into the future – one that we have populated with all relevant driveline technologies. The spectrum ranges from high-tech internal combustion engines, like our new gasoline direct injection units and our BlueTEC diesels, through a variety of types of hybrids to powerful battery and fuel cell electric drives with full everyday usability.”
