Video: Chris Harris Drives The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive

sls-amgThere’s one reason, and one reason only that I got into automotive writing; my overwhelming desire to drive the cars that most people go their whole lives without driving. I’m still working my way up that ladder, but one day I hope to be in the position that Chris Harris, host of the YouTube series Drive, finds himself in; driving the Mercedes electric supercar, the SLS AMG Electric Drive.

With 740 horsepower and 737 ft-lbs of torque, the Mercedes SLS AMG Electric drive takes the typical gullwing Merc and replaces the whole drivetrain with an electric setup that delivers serious performance. Harris goes on to detail how many aspects of the SLS AMG are familiar, and yet how unfamiliar this car really is.

There aren’t many YouTube videos worth watching for nearly 20 minutes, but if you’re into electric supercars, this video is a must-watch. Definitely check it out.
