The battery-powered car has a maximum range of 155 miles and takes around three hours to recharge. All of this comes at a price, the electric vehicle has a hefty cost of around $540,000, more than twice the amount of the petrol engine-powered SLS AMG GT. It’s available for pre-order now and first deliveries will begin in July 2013.
