Chris Harris drives the future

Mercedes-Benz SLS Electric Drive

For his weekly video update Chris Harris spent some quality time with the Mercedes-Benz SLS Electric Drive. That’s an all-electric 552kW/1000Nm supercar, in case you’d forgotten.

Okay, the downsides are familiar, the range is no match for a conventionally powered SLS and at around 2200kg this car is a lot heavier as well.

But just as the Prius was a starting point for Toyota’s hybrid technology, the SLS ED is a starting point for the electric-powered hypercar of tomorrow.

Half of this review is filled with Harris chewing the fat with a Mercedes spokesman. If you’re a true car nerd you will love it.
