The mechanical “electrified” will play a leading role in the future models that Mercedes-AMG will launch to the market. Proof of this is that during the Paris motor show 2016, the Mercedes Night Media confirmed the future launch of a hiperdeportivo of mechanical hybrid and the technology will be directly extracted from the Formula 1.

A model that will have between 1,000 and 1,500 HP of combined power and whose presentation will take place sometime in the next year, due to which in 2017 will take place on the 50th anniversary of AMG. And what better way to celebrate his half-century of history with a hiperdeportivo hybrid? Currently this model is referred to internally in the company as “R50”.

however, Mercedes-AMG will not only in the systems hybrid propulsion, since the next step is the leap to the mechanics on pure electric. Tobias Moers, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG, has confirmed in a recent statement to a specialized sector. The new Mercedes-AMG pure electric will be developed and marketed, though at the moment it is unknown when it will come to the dealers.

it Is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and posted a time of 7:56.234 at the Nürburgring.

“we’re working on a lot of projects, and in parallel hiperdeportivo hybrid, we have on our hands a project to a pure electric. Although, at the moment I cannot say when we will launch to the market a model, a pure electric, it is something that sooner or later it will happen. At Mercedes-AMG we have a commitment to efficiency and performance. It is for this reason that the electrical model that we are releasing to the market will combine these two concepts.”

Tobias Moers also said that not to make the final leap to the mechanical, hybrid and electric, AMG would be doomed to disappear. It is something that sooner or later will have to do all the niche brands in high-performance models.

For the moment, there are not many details that we can comment about this new Mercedes-AMG mechanics on pure electric. What is clear is that it will be placed as a clear the successor of the Mercedes SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive. A sporty electric AMG that was marketed about 5 years ago and the price was more than 430.000 euros. It wasn’t cheap, but he made up for with performance and incredible performance.
