It’s understandable if the Mercedes SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive Concept grabbed all the attention from the Mercedes booth at the 2012 Paris Motor Show all by itself. An electric supercar with 740 horsepower on tap?
Yeah, that’s insane.
But it’s also important to remember that the SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive Concept isn’t the only car Mercedes brought to Paris because they also brought the B-Class Electric Drive Concept.
Now that we know how serious Mercedes is when it comes to emission-free electric vehicles, it’s worth pointing out that the German automaker has taken the steps to ensure that they’re ready to build series production vehicles that demonstrate high everyday practicality.
“In developing our electric vehicles we accord top priority to customer benefits,” says Professor Dr Thomas Weber, Member of the Board of Management at Daimler AG responsible for Group Research and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Development.
“Accordingly, the Concept B-Class Electric Drive demonstrates premium-standard electric mobility for all the family. The concept vehicle offers outstanding everyday practicality and great driving enjoyment.”
