All manufacturers are having to adapt to the rapidly changing automotive regulations and Mercedes-AMG is no exception to this.
While talking to Motor Trend, AMG boss Tobias Moers revealed that its top models in the future will be plug-in hybrids and its ‘lesser’ models will switch to a four-cylinders.
Moers confirmed that the next-generation of C63 and S63 (range-topping versions) will convert to a plug-in hybrid powertrain. Although he did not give any details on the specific powertrain, he did indicate that it will be a different system to the regular Mercedes-Benz (non-AMG) PHEV’s.
With regards to the lesser AMG models such as the C43, we might see the M139 2.0-litre turbocharged unit from the new A 45 S fitted. This will be a sad day as that V6 sounds fantastic.
Tobias also confirmed that All AMG products after 2021 will be all-wheel drive.
