As Mercedes moves towards having a electrified version of each model in its lineup, it goes without saying that their performance-oriented models will also sport hybrid or all-electric variants.


This rendering of an an electric SL, labelled the EQSL, was thought up by Peisert Design, the creator of a Rolls-Royce Cullinan drawing, from November of last year. Of course, the Rolls was based on multiple spy images that were already available at that time, whereas this electrified SL is just a styling exercise.

At the same time, Mercedes has already announced the next-gen SL will go down a different path than the current roadster, so it very well transform into a driver-oriented coupe.

This renderfeatures multiple SL design elements, such as the grille, bonnet and overall silhouette. The headlight design however is pretty original, with hook-like DRL graphics and lighting units embedded deep inside the front fenders. It’s both flashy and futuristic at the same time.

While there’s no word on when we might see a new-age electric sports car by Merc in real life, this shouldn’t be that long given its commitment to electrification.
