Harris Drives SLS Electric Drive

Motoring TV

Chris Harris goes for a spin in the $500,000 electric SLS before explaining the fascinating tech that makes it one of the most exciting EVs on the planet.

Having recently spent time in the SLS AMG Black Series onthe Paul Ricard circuit, Chris Harris returned to sample the SLS ElectricDrive. It’s no secret the British auto-journo fears the onset of electric techin motor cars. But Mercedes’ new all-electric supercar is no ordinary EV. Itputs out 750 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque, while weighing in at2,200kg. With a real-life range of around 125 miles, the SLS Electric Drive istoo heavy and limited, however, to be considered a genuine supercar.

However, the futuristic tech involved to make it an exciting car to drive, as Harris discovers in his latest Drive production, represents the future. Whether you like it or not. So it's best to get used to that idea sooner rather than later. This video should hopefully provide you with some encouragement.
