A major brand is set to replace an iconic sports car with an electric vehicle that will be its most powerful road car ever.
Mercedes-AMG is ready to start developing its first electric sports car as an alternative to the legendary Mercedes-AMG GT.
The Vision AMG will come onto the market in 2025 complete with innovative drive technology developed in Great Britain.
The stunning electric motor will replace the electric GT 63, with prototypes expected to hit the streets in the coming months.
With a sporty, high-tech seamless design and breathtaking proportions, the Vision AMG has a futuristic character.
Its concept proportions suggest an emphasis on interior space while maintaining handling and aerodynamic performance.
The EV will reportedly place as much emphasis on dynamic performance and engagement as it does on straight-line speed CarCar.
Its impressive power could reach the 1000 hp mark.
Mercedes exterior design chief Robert Lesnik said the Vision 2025 “takes full advantage of what’s new.” [AMG.EA] Platform both in design and proportions”.
He added that the plan for the production version is to create a “low and slim” sedan with “excellent aerodynamics” and space for four adults.
Manufacturers want to take on highly acclaimed and top-selling electric sports sedans like the Porsche Taycan, Audi E-tron GT and Lucid Air.
Mercedes-Benz has confirmed it will use a new silicon anode material from US firm Sila for its battery.
The 2025 sedan is described as a four-seater, but larger successors will undoubtedly make room for a third seat in the back.
A Mercedes-AMG spokesman said: “We do not comment on future models.”
“Our Mercedes-AMG CEO has already confirmed that we are developing an AMG-owned BEV on the AMG.EA platform for the second half of the decade and the Vision AMG has given a possible outlook on this.”
This comes after a warning was issued to British drivers about new driving laws that could be announced this month.
Meanwhile, industry experts have urged older drivers to carry a specific card behind the wheel that could provide priority roadside assistance for people with hidden disabilities
