Mercedes-AMG shows design study of an e-coupé

Mercedes-AMG is giving a glimpse of its all-electric future with a design study that has now been unveiled. The Vision AMG is a four-door e-coupé whose shell houses the standalone AMG.EA platform, which is currently being developed in Affalterbach for all-electric performance models.

According to Philipp Schiemer, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, there is "a new, very special spirit of optimism" in the Baden-Württemberg community, which is part of the Stuttgart region. AMG is reinventing itself and the course is clearly set for an electrified future. "With this study, we are now giving an initial preview of how we will transfer the DNA of AMG into the pure-electric future from 2025," Schiemer continues.

According to Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer at Mercedes-Benz, the concept car is based on the Vision EQXX. The vehicle was developed entirely in Affalterbach. According to the company, this applies not only to the platform itself, but also to the special high-voltage battery and the drive technology. The Vision AMG is powered by an axial flux motor developed by Mercedes-Benz subsidiary Yasa. With its compact and lightweight design, it delivers significantly more power than conventional electric motors. Mercedes does not provide precise performance data or information on the energy content of the battery.

According to the company, the concept car is characterized by flowing, full surfaces. Joints are reduced to a minimum and the rear and side windows are painted in the body color Alubeam silver. A long wheelbase, an A-pillar placed far forward and strongly inclined, as well as a roofline that slopes down towards the rear are further features. The strongly beveled tear-off edge at the rear is framed by an illuminated strip that allows for different light installations. "The Vision AMG spectacularly demonstrates what electrification could look like at Mercedes-AMG," says Wagener. "In doing so, we remain consistently true to the brand aesthetic."
