2025 Mercedes-AMG GLR: A Mercedes-Benz Electric SUV With AMG DNA

According to the source, the 2025 Mercedes-AMG GLR will be a 1,000+horsepower electric hyper SUV


  • The GLR would be a battery-powered hyper SUV.

  • It would top Mercedes-Benz’s growing EQ range.

  • Part GLE Coupe, part AMG GT-R, all-electric power.


Mercedes-Benz has invested considerable effort in creating its EQ family of electric vehicles. Many of them are rather sensible, some commercial, while others drip luxury and opulence. The 2025 Mercedes-AMG GLR will surely be the latter two but it’s also going to have massive power as well.

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S 4MATIC+ Coupe

First, the GLR will be a cross between a Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé and an AMG GT-R. It’ll be low-ish for an SUV, wide, and packed with attitude and performance. According to Car Magazine, the GLR will be powered by up to three 250 kW electric motors which will generate a combined system output of 1,006 horsepower and 996 lb.-ft. of torque. Obviously, it will be AWD. The front axle will be of the typical direct-drive type while the rear axle will benefit from a two-speed powershift transmission.

No word on range however the GLR is said to get a 105 kWh battery pack that will include a 20 kWh over-boost function. There are no further details on performance however we’re quite certain it will be fast. Given its performance potential, the name “EQR” would make more sense but perhaps Benz is saving that one for another vehicle.
