Unveiled at the 2013 Miami International Boat Show, the Cigarette AMG Electric Drive Concept produces 2220hp and 3000Nm of torque out of four 60-kWh lithium ion batteries teamed with 12 liquid-cooled, permanent-magnet synchronous electric motors.

The boat integrates numerous components from the SLS AMG Coupé Electric Drive, the world's fastest electrically-driven series production vehicle. The 11.5m craft is capable of over 160kph and produces zero emissions.
