Mercedes-AMG Going Electric


“There will be an AMG pure electric car but I don’t know when. Because otherwise AMG will disappear as a brand,” revealed AMG boss Tobias Moers in an interview with Australian website Drive.

Moers explained that going full electric is easier said than done for a high-performance brand.

Electric vehicles have come a long way in recent years and customers now expect a long driving range.

Notably, the company is developing a range-topping supercar that will use a gasoline-electric hybrid drivetrain made up of a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine borrowed from its Formula One team and an electric motor.

The SLS Electric Drive set a speed record for electric vehicles on Germany’s famed Nürburgring track that still stands today.
