The future Mercedes-AMG hybrid will not arrive before 2020

Mercedes-AMG superdeportivo híbrido

enthusiasts of vehicles over pure take years and years seeing as “that purity” fades in sports cars. The society is changing and the manufacturers are adapting to these changes in seeking to meet the needs of the majority of its customers. It is increasingly difficult to find a sporty with motor maximum torque, with a good manual switching and backsplashes and ruffles free botonerías and screens. If you are a purist, the future will further depress.

The case is that the head of AMG, Tobias Moers, according to the companions of Motor Authority, has recently stated in a event that “we are not able to change the future”. The boss of the AMG is concerned with this statement that any changes in the car industry will make soon the vast majority of sports vehicles are electrified, well with hybrid cars or fully electric.

Referring to his own firm AMG, Moers pointed out that “when we refer to a hybrid or an electric in AMG, it is something that we expect with security beyond 2020”. This statement can be good or bad for many, it depends on what point of view you look at it. On the one hand we can think that there are still at least three years until Mercedes-AMG begins to launch electric sports although, on the contrary, we can also think that three years will go by very quickly and that will soon be impossible to buy an AMG new with only a heat engine, without electrical support.

Both the changes in the mentality of the society as their own regulations, anti-pollution are forcing the manufacturers to seek solutions with their vehicles more sports. At this point it seems more than clear that the car as up to now we did come to an end. But not all the news is bad if we look at the hipercoche derivative of the Formula 1 that AMG will shortly present, or the performance that they are making supercars like the Ferrari LaFerrari or the Porsche 918 Spyder.
