2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 Coupe and Convertible Hybrid E-Class AMG - The possibilities of a high-powered Mercedes-AMG E63 variation of either the new-generation E-Class Sports car as well as future E-Class Cabriolet designs is very not likely, CarAdvice could expose. The new-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sports car was exposed at the 2018 Detroit electric motor program, where Mercedes-AMG principal Tobias Moers informed CarAdvice the firm had not been preparing to offer the swoopy two-door the complete go-fast therapy, there's very little of a market for a fully-hot AMG version, however an AMG Efficiency variation, to puts it simply a possible E43 variation, gets on the cards. As well as it might include a state-of-the-art brand-new drivetrain, also.
Mercedes-Benz has actually revealed it will certainly use a brand-new straight-six engine, which will certainly stand distinct from its V6 bi-turbo equivalent in the present SLC43, GLC43 and also C43 designs.
Yet with the firm's brand-new straight-six, it will certainly can dipping a typical toe right into an eco-AMG way of thinking, with that said drivetrain possibly providing 48-volt moderate crossbreed innovation. That engine will certainly initially debut in the upgraded S-Class, because of be exposed in a couple of months.
When asked if the brand-new straight-six engine is a lasting objective or more probable to show up under the hood of something earlier, Moers claimed: "It's not that away".
" We will certainly not have that automobile this year," he claimed, suggesting that a 2018 launching for the E43 version-- or whatever it might be-- is feasible. Certainly, Moers was asked if it would certainly be the E43 or another thing, to which he responded: "Maybe both. We have actually decided."
There have actually been records that the brand name will certainly supply an E50 crossbreed design, keeping that version stated to flaunt 300kW of power as well as 500Nm of torque. That can in theory rest alongside/above a prospective E43 design which, based upon the existing V6's numbers would certainly have 270kW as well as 520Nm.
For context, the new-generation all-wheel-drive E63 has a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine which, in E63 S requirements, drain a large 450kW of power and also 850Nm of torque.
