Mercedes-AMG Confirms Hybrid Model



Mercedes-AMG is working on the development of performance-focused hybrid power trains. This comes from AMG boss Tobias Moers who was speaking to Australian website Motoring. Moers hinted that the first vehicles to receive a hybrid power train would be the C63 and the AMG-GT.

Of particular focus for the engineers looking into this is the need to offset the extra weight that will be added from the battery packs added. The team is also considering reducing the number of platforms in AMG's parts bin in order to facilitate the task of going hybrid. Such a move would also reduce the cost of development for future AMG models.

Mercedes-AMG will likely wait until 2020 to launch a hybrid, but it is worth noting that BMW M has accepted that going hybrid in the coming years is inevitable, in part because emissions standards will only become more stringent in the future.

I am not sure how many hybrid AMG GT models would sell. Are people interested in them?

Well it's a performance hybrid, if you want to know if it will sell, just look at hybrid hypercars and supercars and see how well they are doing.

There's the BMW i8 but that's the only one I know and I assume they aren't selling too many of those. Not sure how well a hybrid AMG would do.
