The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive is a limited edition electric variant of the SLS AMG.

Description

Text originally from the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive's Wikipedia article.

The SLS AMG Electric Drive is powered by four electric motors with combined ratings of 552 kW (751 PS; 740 hp) and 1,000 N⋅m (738 lb⋅ft). Each motor can spin up to 13,000 rpm and weighs 45 kg (99 lb). In addition, the transmission allows each motor to selectively drive all 4 wheels. This enables the car to accelerate from a stand still to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds.

The SLS AMG Electric Drive included a liquid-cooled 400 V lithium-ion battery rated to 60 kWh that delivers a range of 250 km (160 mi) under the combined New European Driving Cycle. The 548 kg (1,208 lb) battery pack is made up of 12 modules, each comprising 72 lithium-ion cells. The system was designed as a collaboration between Mercedes-AMG and Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains Ltd.

Summary

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive initally appeared as a low Class C car with the following rank statistics:

  • Starting rank: 909
  • MAX rank: 1163
    • This was changed to 1170 in the 2019 Halloween Update
  • MAX+PRO rank: 1212
    • This was changed to 1226 in the 2019 Halloween Update
  • Tuning Kit bonus: +59
    • This was changed to +36 in the 2019 Halloween Update
  • Nitro Efficiency: 7/11.5/16

As of the Fifteenth Anniversary Update, the SLS AMG Electric Drive is now a low Class D car.

Performance

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 competition. The Electric Drive's raw top speed is slightly lower than that of the Audi TTS Coupé.

The Electric Drive has a moderate nitro efficiency, nitro boost, steady handling and wide drifting radius. The Electric Drive's biggest weakness is its slow launch acceleration, which makes it prone to being knocked down if it spawns in or near pole position.

Usage

The Electric Drive was rendered unviable in multiplayer due to massive changes in the game, in that its rank of 1226 forced it to be matched up against vastly superior cars introduced and retuned in the 1230 rank bracket, while the Electric Drive itself was never retuned since game launch. The main issue of the SLS's lack of performance is its extremely slow acceleration in comparison to viable cars in the rank, making it prone to being knocked down if it spawns in or near pole position; otherwise, the SLS somehow has a total speed tier and nitro efficiency in line with other cars in the bracket. It was also negatively affected by the removal of the voting system, in that it was heavily reliant on longer tracks and races over 2-laps to stay competitive; its only viable strategy was to start at the back and try to take advantage of re-spawned nitro bottles that mid-pack opponents couldn't receive while the Electric Drive was far behind, which was rendered obsolete with this change.

Its usability in Career Mode was also impacted by the fact that it is no longer considered a cheap entry into Class C ownership, instead becoming another low Class D car, a placement that is better suited to other 1230-rank vehicles or the Mini Cooper S Roadster. The Career Mode also removed a majority of Electric-only races, where the Electric Drive was a good choice for earlier races. The outright removal of Mastery and Collections was another major losses, in that one of the appeals of the Electric Drive was its low upgrade costs to gain easy Mastery and Collection rewards, which were removed in v5.8 and later updates.

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. It could also be used as an alternative to the Audi R8 e-tron for early-game Electric-only events due to its low price and easy-to-drive nature.

The Electric Drive could use its average speed tier and slow acceleration to creep into multiplayer races, taking advantage of the fact that cars in the middle of the pack are denied nitrous bottles which respawn some time after collection, after which the SLS could collect due to its slow acceleration and moderate nitro efficiency. Thus, it is advisable to pick long maps like Tokyo or Iceland, along with the 2-lap option, to maximize race time to allow the SLS to catch up to faster-accelerating opponents.

The Electric Drive counts towards the Ion Runners, GT Club, Glimpse into the Future and Mercedes collections.

Price

The Electric Drive costs Credits 25,000 to purchase (originally Credits 6,000, then Credits 9,000). As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost Credits 205,000 to MAX and Credits 15,200 to PRO.
