Mercedes-AMG He said Vision AMG The idea is a “first glimpse of how we are transmitting AMG DNA to the all-electric future, starting in 2025”.
The electric four-door coupe rides on the upcoming AMG.EA platform, currently under development and designed specifically for electric vehicles.
The Mercedes-AMG Vision did not share any technical features of the AMG such as power, torque, range or battery size and chemistry, although it did say that its drivetrain components were designed from scratch.
These include the battery and its axial flux motor, designed by Mercedes-Benz subsidiary YASA, and are said to be more compact and lightweight than the conventional electric motors and feature “significantly more power”.
The company says that the Vision AMG is an example of a “monolithic sculpture”, and that it does not “dislike” the previous Vision EQXX concept, including its tapered, teardrop form.
Features a dedicated electric vehicle design with a long wheelbase and short overhang.
The steeply-racked A-pillar, located at the very front, gives it a raccoon silhouette. There are also details of some muscular designs, such as its prominent shoulders and flared wheel arches.
On the front, there is a sharply chiseled “shark nose” with a closed-off AMG grille featuring illuminated vertical bars.
The three-pointed star is prominent on the bonnet, agreeing to the Mercedes-AMG Project One. The headlights have three LED components to form a stylized, three-dimensional Mercedes star.
The headlights are alternately connected by a horizontal band of light above the grille, which can display various animations.
The rear and side windows match the entire car in album silver, while Mercedes says it minimizes joints and closed lines.
The Vision AMG’s rear overhang is slightly longer than the front overhang, and is said to be aerodynamically optimized.
It features a distinctive active spoiler, and is made by a “precisely cut light band that accommodates a variety of lighting installations”.
The circular tail light has three LED rings located in the cylindrical tube, where the presence of small stars gives another consent to the Mercedes logo.
The finishing touch includes exposed carbon-fiber exterior material, aerodynamic-designed 22-inch wheels, and AMG seals, diffuser components, and the finished logo in the colors of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team.
Mercedes has not confirmed how aerodynamic the concept is. The drag coefficient of the Vision EQXX was only 0.17, while the drag rating of the production EQS sedan was 0.20.
The company says the concept sits considerably lower than the EQS, though, although it still provides “plenty” of space for four residents.
“AMG is innovating itself,” said Philip Schmidt, CEO of Mercedes-AMG.
“As has been the case with our founding fathers, there has been an amazing sense of fresh start here in Alfertbach for quite some time.
“The course is well and truly set for an electrifying future, and we’ve set the bar high.
“Through this study, we are now giving the first glimpse of how AMG DNA is being transferred to the all-electric future, starting in 2025.”
Mercedes-Benz is spending € 40 billion ($ 64 billion) on EV technology, platform and vehicle development between 2022 and 2030 as it plans to move to EV only “by the end of the decade, where market conditions allow”.
Last year it announced three dedicated EV architectures: MB.EA for medium to large vehicles; AMG.EA for performance vehicles; And VAN.EA, naturally, for vans.
All platforms launched after 2025 will be for EV only.
