Meet the Vision AMG, a slick show car with which Mercedes-Benz shows what the future of Mercedes-AMG will look like. Mercedes’ AMG department has already embraced electrified and even all-electric powertrains and it doesn’t look like the sports department wants to move away from it.
Anyone who still remembers the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX should undoubtedly think about this when seeing this Vision AMG. Like the Vision EQXX, this Vision AMG is a particularly slick, contoured model with four doors, an extremely smooth appearance that is shaped to cut through the wind as efficiently as possible. Despite the fact that this Vision AMG, like the Vision EQXX, has a long, low rear that ends abruptly, the proportions of the two study models are different, although AMG indicates that this study model embroiders the concept of the Mercedes-Benz economy miracle. Where the 2015 IAA Concept seemed like an early preview of the Vision EQXX, this Vision AMG seems to be that of another model to be released in the future.
The Vision AMG has a long wheelbase and relatively short overhangs. The car is not yet ready for production with its handle-less doors, partly stickered side windows, stubborn wheels and fierce buttocks, but the signal that AMG is propagating with it is certainly interesting. With the car, AMG shows that it can do more than just a ‘sporty version’ of an existing car when it comes to electrified, but especially electrically. While cars such as the plug-in hybrid Mercedes-AMG 4-Door 63 SE Performance and the electric 43 AMG and 55 AMG flavors of the EQE are such versions, this Vision AMG hints at a future in which Mercedes’ sports department also fully owns cars. makes. They are not all very hard coupes. AMG says that the Vision AMG is a four-seater that shows how a practical all-electric sports car could be designed! Will AMG come with a Taycan-like? It looks like it.
Around 2025, AMG will come up with a completely self-developed electric car, a sporty one for which, according to the Germans, almost all parts have been developed separately. It doesn’t stop with that one car, there are several models in the barrel that will only be available as AMG. Each of these will be placed on a modular platform that can only be used by AMG, which is called AMG.EA. AMG will soon have its own modular electrical base. Mercedes-Benz itself will receive the MB.EA platform, among other things, and the VAN.EA platform is on the roll for Mercedes-Benz electric commercial vehicles.
Don’t be surprised if some design elements of this Vision AMG return to a more or lesser basis on a fully electric AMG, although the gentlemen and ladies in Affalterbach themselves already indicate that the study model has ‘extreme proportions’ and especially show that it is the case with the club is about ‘beauty and the exceptional’. The stubborn lighting at the front is a reference to the Mercedes star and could just be one of the elements that make it to the production stage in a weakened form. The typical AMG grille with vertical bars can be seen illuminated on the front of the Vision AMG. In any case, this means that a landmark of the AMG models is preserved. We also seem to detect a design reference to exhaust tailpipes in the six round light in the back. F1 enthusiasts will undoubtedly recognize a nod to the F1 cars of Mercedes-AMG Petronas in the 22-inch wheels and in the green color that you see on the side skirts, among other things.
