Mercedes Vision AMG: The future of electric AMG

Mercedes-AMG electric car! Certainly not all car enthusiasts like this news, but change is inevitable – and it started a long time ago. The first self-developed electric model of Affalterbach will be presented in 2025. With the Mercedes Vision AMG show car, there is already a concrete preview of AMG’s electric future. Particularly interesting: the back with taillights that look like exhaust pipes!

“AMG is reinventing itself. We are developing everything from scratch, from the AMG.EA autonomous platform to the revolutionary driving technology with which we will take electrification to a new level,” promised Philip Schimmer, Mercedes-AMG Chairman.

Large 22-inch wheels with aerodynamic elements and a color scheme inspired by Formula 1 cars. The show car has no interior.


Production model is scheduled for 2025

The Vision AMG four-door show car impressively shows what the electric future could look like in concrete terms. Strictly speaking, a production model expected in 2025 won’t be AMG’s first all-electric car, because the very limited SLS AMG Electric Drive was already available in the past – and the first EQ models bearing the AMG logo are already available today.

How much power will the electric supercar have?

What’s particularly interesting about the Vision AMG is the platform. It bears the AMG.EA name and has been specifically designed for AMG electrified models. The core of the motor is an axial flow motor, being developed by Mercedes subsidiary “YASA” and, despite its compact design, is said to provide much more power than conventional electric motors. However, AMG still owes specific numbers for now, but there is still some time until 2025.

Ready for the series? The headlights consist of three individual LED elements modeled on the Mercedes star.


So let’s devote ourselves to a fascinating study design. Many elements of the standard EQXX car are recognizable at first glance; At the same time, the Vision AMG design language painted in “Alubeam Silver” is vaguely reminiscent of the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo show car introduced in 2013. The arms are short, the wheelbase is long and the A-pillar is badly ripped. In contrast to the 2013 study, the Vision AMG is a four-door coupe.

The headlights are based on the Mercedes star

The star-shaped headlights are definitely the highlight of the front. It is designed to look like a 3D Mercedes star and consists of three LED elements on each side, which are optically connected by a light strip.

The Panamericana radiator grille, now an integral part of current AMG models, has been carried over into the electric era of the show car. It is optically closed and has illuminated brackets. Upstairs, there is an oversized Mercedes star embossed on the bonnet.

Taillights or exhaust pipes? The bulbs are stuck in the tubular tubes. So the taillights look like exhaust pipes!


A strip of lights is integrated into the wing edge at the rear. Underneath it is huge lettering stating that this is an AMG model. Anyone who now thinks that the electrical study has six red-lit exhaust pipes is certainly not alone. The Affalterbachers, on the other hand, talk about six taillights – three per side and, oddly enough, placed very far above the diffuser – so the resemblance to the exhaust pipes is not entirely coincidental.

It will be some time before serial production begins, but at Mercedes-AMG they promise that the show car should indeed give a concrete glimpse into the brand’s electric future. Then maybe with 1000 hp plus!
