The Mercedes SLS AMG Electric Drive was one of the world's first all electric supercar. Power is provided through 400 V Liquid cooled Lithium-ion battery with 48 kWh capacity. The car was unveiled in 2011 at the North American International Auto Show.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive appears as a low Class C car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 909
- This is identical to that of the BMW M3 Sedan.
- MAX rank: 1163
- MAX+PRO rank: 1212
- Tuning Kit bonus: +59
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 303
- Nitro Efficiency: 7/12/17
The Electric Drive's total top speed is higher than that of the Audi RS 3 Sportback but is otherwise not very high compared to its other competition. The Electric Drive's raw top speed is slightly lower than that of the Audi TTS Coupé, making it the lowest in all of Class C with no Tuning Kit.
With mediocre nitro efficiency, average handling and a wide drifting radius, the Electric Drive is considered one of the worst Class C cars for its rank.
In terms of usage, the Electric Drive mainly competes with the Audi RS 3 Sportback and Chevrolet Camaro GS. The RS 3 is cheaper but has weaker performance, while the Camaro is the best among the 3 but is also more expensive. All three cars are decent starter cars for Class C.
The Electric Drive has a Free Class C Upgrade at Mastery challenge 10. The Electric Drive is featured in four collections: Ion Runners, GT Club, Glimpse into the Future and Mercedes. A total of 1,950,000 and 4 Class S free upgrades are awarded for completing all 8 versions of the collections.
The Electric Drive costs 25,000 to purchase (originally 6,000, then 9,000). As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 205,000 to MAX and 15,200 to PRO.
