Default Merc reveals SLS E-Cell's drivetrain

Quote:
Mercedes-Benz has revealed the electric drivetrain system that powers the Mercedes SLS AMG E-Cell project. The drivetrain, which has been in development since 2010, makes use of the German manufacturer’s Formula 1 experience, particularly with the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS).

The E-Cell’s electric powertrain, in development since 2010, has been jointly produced by Merc’s performance arm, AMG, and Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains in Brixworth, Northamptonshire.

The system comprises four electric motors located near the wheels that provide a peak power output of 392kW (equivalent to 526bhp) and 649lb ft of torque. The four motors rev to a maximum of 12,000rpm.

The gullwing-doored SLS E-Cell accelerates from 0-62mph in 4.0sec, compared to the 3.8sec taken by the conventionally powered SLS AMG.
Mercedes positioned the motors close to the wheels rather than in the wheel hubs in order to reduce the unsprung masses. The four electric motors and the transmissions are positioned very low down in the vehicle to offer a low centre of gravity and balanced weight distribution.

The 400-volt battery – which comprises 12 modules of 72 lithium-ion polymer cells – is charged by means of targeted recuperation during braking while the car is being driven.

An electronic control system converts the direct current from the high-voltage battery into three-phase alternating current which is required for the synchronous motors and regulates the energy flow for all operating conditions. Other cooling and heating systems maintain the temperature of the battery.

The electric motor system means the E-Cell has permanent four-wheel drive and active torque vectoring, which allows each wheel to be independently braked or driven, depending on conditions.

The carbonfibre transmission tunnel also serves as the monocoque housing for the high-voltage battery modules and is structurally integrated into the E-Cell’s aluminium body shell.

Unlike the existing production version of the AMG SLS, the E-Cell has an independent multi-link front suspension with pushrod damper struts. This is because the vertically arranged damper struts in the conventional SLS had to make way for the additional driveshafts.

The Mercedes SLS AMG E-Cell is expected to go into production in 2013, although only a modest number will be built.

He hasn't made a post since March 5th... Maybe he is no where near dedicated to posting cool stuff. Or he got a better Job.

If he really lost the interest, I would sleep better if there is some sort of good bye.

It´s always disconcerting when longtime members disappear without any notification, like NJSwamplands for example

True that. I thought my Studebaker reference in the Detroit Electric thread would've gotten his attention; he would do similar for me.

Avanti R5 has been going through personal issues, so let's just send positive thoughts his way and keep him in your prayers (for those that pray).

Thanks.

On the actual topic I want to say that torque vectoring with electric motors is one of the major reasons I want electrified vehicles like this to succeed. The Subaru XV had the same thing effectively and wow it would make a vehicle so much fun to drive.
