Next-gen Mercedes-AMG C63 going hybrid

The design may possibly eliminate its V8 engine, much too.

Whilst rivals downsized, Mercedes-AMG decided to continue to keep a twin-turbocharged V8 engine in the C63. The company will just take a diverse path as it starts to establish the up coming-technology model.

“I feel the method is great for now, but for sure we have to have to have a close seem at practical choices, because we have to be resourceful and I am chasing effectiveness and which is not strictly joined to the quantity of cylinders,” Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers informed CarAdvice in an interview on the side-lines of the New York automobile clearly show.

In this circumstance, remaining inventive signifies exploring electrification and downsizing. Moers already confirmed AMG will go hybrid.

“For confident the future-era Mercedes-AMG C63 will be a hybrid – that’s now a presented,” he claimed. He did not go into further specifics, so it’s also early to inform whether it will be a plug-in system or a delicate setup developed about a 48-volt electrical technique.

His allusion to cylinder count hints the C63 will never retain its V8 for significantly extended. We are not able to consider a person with a turbo 4, but the heart of the hybrid method could be possibly a V6 or a straight-six engine.

Mercedes-AMG just released the up-to-date 2019 C63 (pictured) at the New York car show, so we will never see a replacement in the quick long run.
