Auto Show promotes Mercedes-Benz Electric Supercar

Mercedes-Benz has launched a new electric supercar at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show. The vehicle features four electric engines which provide 526 horsepower and 649 lbs per foot of torque. The car is able to reach 65 mph within four seconds and 130 mph in less than 12 seconds. The car is also vibration free and operates in silence.

With different types of driving settings, a driver can decide from the comfort, sport, sport+ and manual settings. Comfort drive only utilizes 40% of its motors’ capabilities and is aware of power inputs. Sport mode offers quicker response from the gas pedal and uses 60% of the engine power. By having options to save power, the driver is given more freedom.

By turning towards an electric car, Mercedes-Benz shows that they are taking a green approach, and being responsible by reducing their carbon emissions effects on the environment. Wiles Greenworld, London based green office supplier has also reduced their carbon emissions and one of the ways they have done this is by using LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) vehicles when delivering goods.
