Mercedes-AMG Confirms It Will Roll Out An All-Electric Model

#Mercedes-AMG will create a new all-electric supercar acting as the spiritual successor to the SLS E-Cell.

At the ongoing Paris Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz launched its EQ sub-brand, dedicated to electric vehicles. While Mercedes-Benz badged models will be the first to join the EQ family, AMG will follow suit in the future.

While speaking with Drive at the show, Mercedes-AMG chairman Tobias Moers said that an all-electric AMG won't arrive in the next few years but will become a reality at some stage.

“There is no plan for 2020 to have an electrified car, but if you ask me that question you will always get the answer that sooner or later there will be a pure electric driven AMG, because that's going to happen,” he confirmed. “For sure it's a trade off between efficiency and performance, and for other cars as well. There will be an AMG pure electric car but I don't know when. Because otherwise AMG will disappear as a brand.”

The only electric production car previously produced by Mercedes-AMG is the SLS Electric Drive. Although it was only built in limited numbers, it is still the electric production car record holder around the Nurburgring, despite being engineered six years ago.

Before an electric AMG arrives, the performance sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz will launch its Formula 1-powered hybrid hypercar.
