Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance hybrid revealed. This super sedan can produce 843hp, which is AMG’s first-ever plug-in hybrid and is said to rival the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid in international markets.
As for the car itself, the design changes over the standard car are subtle, they are limited chiefly to a new front bumper modelled on the two-door GT, bespoke badging, new exhaust outlets and exclusive 20-inch and 21-inch wheel designs. Otherwise, the PHEV is visually and technically identical to the recently facelifted GT 4-Door Coupé.
Inside, there are also not a lot of things that have changed. It gets a number of hybrid-specific displays for the MBUX infotainment system, including an EV range indicator, real-time power consumption data and an electric motor power gauge.
The combination of a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8, a 6.1-kilowatt-hour battery pack, and an electric motor mounted on the rear axle gives this car a mind-bending 831 horsepower (620 kilowatts) and 1,033 pound-feet (1,400 newton-meters) of torque. Making it the most powerful Mercedes-AMG factory product ever.
The electric motor takes its power from a 6.1kWh, 400V battery pack. Mercedes claims that it weighs just 89kg, this was “designed for fast power delivery and draw, not for the longest possible range”. Electric power is said to be “always available”, enabling quicker acceleration out of corners or rapid overtaking manoeuvres.
AMG chairman Philipp Schiemer said, “With the new GT 63 S E Performance [4-Door Coupé], we’re transporting our brand DNA into an electrified future. In doing so, we’re following our own technical path, which is what has always made AMG so special and desirable. Developed entirely in Affalterbach, the performance hybrid offers a fascinating level of driving dynamics and rightly bears our new technology label ‘E Performance’. With this new concept, we’re also opening up to new target groups who will experience Mercedes-AMG as the performance luxury brand of the 21st century.”
