Mercedes-AMG EQSL Roadster Concept Looks Drop-dead Gorgeous

Mercedes-AMG EQSL

Artist’s render makes a strong case for an SL-Class addition to Mercedes’ upcoming EV roster.

Whether we internal-combustion fans like it or not, the future lies in electricity. And even we have to admit that this somber fact might not turn out to be such a bad thing. After all, EVs have proven to be solid performers. Ones with zero emissions and strong reliability, too. Mercedes-AMG, like any good automaker, realizes that they must innovate in this field to have a future. Thus, we’ve been promised a host of Mercedes-AMG EQ vehicles that sound rather interesting.

The rendering you see above of an EQSL isn’t real, however. Nor did it come from someone at M-B’s think tank. Rather, this intriguing concept came from the mind (and hands) of a talented artist by the name of Jan Peisert. But if you didn’t know any better, you’d think that this concept was in fact real. Which just speaks to how good (and viable) the idea really is.

The overall design fits right in with the Mercedes-AMG EQC, for starters. M-B is also working on an EQA compact car and EQS flagship sedan. So it only makes sense to also bring the legendary SL into the future as well, don’t you think? This EQSL does just that, evoking the future without sacrificing the model’s legendary lineage.

Whether or not the SL will survive the ever-changing tide of consumer preference, well, that remains to be seen. But with a little luck, a proper sporty EV might just do the trick. And if Mercedes-AMG does in fact plan to build one, we sure hope it looks like this.
