Mercedes-Benz is rapidly rolling out its fully electric EQ model range. It started with the EQC, then the EQV and Mercedes-Benz added the EQA to the electric family. The EQB, EQE and EQS will follow within two years. For Mercedes-AMG, which slowly has to start thinking about other ways to give strength cures to Mercedes, they are also interesting newcomers. After all, it has to look for survival in something other than the combustion engine. It is therefore no big surprise that Mercedes-AMG is going to venture into the EQ models. The fact that the EQE receives this treatment has already been shown. Other ‘EQs’, however, also pass by in Affalterbach.
Markus Schäfer, the brand’s R&D CEO, confirms those plans. That draws Coach on. “Performance versions of the EQA, EQB, EQS and EQE are coming.” Schäfer, also COO of Mercedes-Benz, also hints at the arrival of an ‘electric platform for AMG’. That is even more mysterious, but it sounds like an electric supercar intended purely for Mercedes-AMG is coming. A spiritual successor to the SLS AMG E-Cell (photo 2) perhaps. So do not be surprised if the Mercedes-AMG GT is eventually replaced by a single electrically powered powerhouse.
Incidentally, it is still the question how far Mercedes-AMG will go in the treatment of the EQ models. Audi, for example, is taking it easy with the RS E-tron GT unveiled this week: it distinguishes itself from the basic version mainly by its power and technology. The future will tell whether Mercedes-AMG will also leave out the thick bumpers, special grilles and spoilers that we are used to.
