The World’s Most Advanced Performance Boat – Electrified by Mercedes-AMG

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive with 704HP (552 kW) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque so it can boast true supercar performance with zero CO2 emissions. Mercedes-Benz was not content with having the only all-electric supercar in the world, he need to have a world’s most powerful electrically-driven powerboat. The Cigarette AMG Electric Drive Concept is the result of a partnership between Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing.

The boat is 38 feet long and is plastered with AMG branding on the sides and top of the bow above the matte chrome yellow paint (officially called AMG Electricbeam mango). Two 220-kW chargers can refill the batteries, dockside, in about seven hours. Top speed of over 100 miles per hour from four 60-kWh lithium-ion batteries and two banks of six liquid-cooled, permanent-magnet synchronous electric motors, and the 240 kWh of total energy should provide plenty of juice out on the water. Maximum output is 1,656 kW (2,220HP) and torque reaches 3,000 Nm (2,212 lb-ft).

The idea of a powerful electric boat is nothing new, but this is the first time we’ve seen Mercedes put its EV technology on the water. Anyone who’s afraid of driving an EV in the rain, well, should take note.
