New Mercedes-AMG hybrid engine to debut in 2018

New Mercedes-AMG hybrid engine to debut in 2018

Details of Mercedes-AMG’s hybrid power-plant bearing the ‘53’ AMG badge are out on the internet. The hybrid car, as you all know, is expected to debut in November 2017 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, before hitting the international arena in the first quarter of 2018.

It is believed that Merc’s 430bhp 3.0-litre, inline-six motor will work in close association with a 67bhp electric motor. Furthermore, there are rumours that the next-gen CLS could be at the receiving end of this motor initially, after which it will filter down to the rest of the brand’s models which are underpinned by the MRA modular platform- like the C, E and S-Class.

Mercedes-AMG has already shared their target of implementing hybrid tech into its entire line-up in the future. With more electrified cars expected from the brand, it has been confirmed that the tech will be incremental to bumping-up performance and not fuel efficiency. AMG-head, Tobias Moers, even revealed that all-electric models, such as the SLS AMG Electric Drive, are a sign of things to come. So it is essential that the brand strengthens their electrification know-how.
