Shock therapy: Merc’s electric SLS
TopGear does the morning rounds in the world’s fastest milk-float: the all-electric Mercedes SLS E-cell
Posted: 05 May 2011
Though not on sale until 2013, AMG wanted to showcase its electric proactivity. So here I am standing beside the sole SLS E-cell prototype on a runway outside Kristiansund, a town in north-west Norway with strong connections to the oil industry. Norway's a clever country: 99 per cent of its electricity is sustainable, generated mostly hydro-electrically with some solar input too. It shows what's possible. The SLS E-cell does too.
