Mercedes-AMG to Unveil Electrifying High-Performance Saloon in 2025

Mercedes-AMG is set to introduce its most potent electric sports car by 2025, built on the novel AMG.EA platform with breakthrough UK-engineered motor technology.


  • The upcoming Mercedes-AMG electric sports car, arriving in 2025, will feature a groundbreaking 1000 hp electric drivetrain and innovative design to compete with top EV saloons.

  • Utilizing the bespoke AMG.EA platform, the vehicle will prioritize dynamic performance alongside a sleek, aerodynamic silhouette reminiscent of traditional AMG sports cars.

  • The vehicle will incorporate cutting-edge axial-flux motor technology from Yasa, enabling superior power, efficiency, and a compact design that enhances both performance and interior space.


According to Autocar, Mercedes-AMG is scheduled for a 2025 release of its pioneering electric sports car. This vehicle is not merely an electric variant but a ground-up design on the exclusive AMG.EA platform, signifying Mercedes-AMG’s commitment to electrification and performance.

The new saloon is set to be the marque’s most powerful street-legal vehicle, boasting an impressive 1000 horsepower. It represents AMG’s foray into the sportscar electric vehicle (EV) market, aiming to rival established EV sports saloons like the Porsche Taycan and Audi E-tron GT. Its current Mercedes-AMG EQS, although quick and powerful, falls behind in terms of overall performance.

AMG has experience electrifying models such as the EQE and EQS, but this venture would be unique as it would be conceived from the start as a performance car. Its design is expected to be as dynamic and engaging as it is fast, with a focus on handling and aerodynamics.

The heart of this revolutionary vehicle is the advanced electric motor technology from Yasa, a UK-based firm acquired by Mercedes in 2021. These axial-flux motors are a departure from traditional designs, offering high power and torque densities, lower weight, and a reduced footprint, which translates to greater efficiency and performance.

Potential applications of this technology could see the motors delivering a combined output near 1000 hp and 1000 lb-ft of torque, a significant leap over AMG’s current high-performance electric models.

Mercedes is not alone in the high-stakes EV race, with competitors like BMW M and Audi also developing platforms to support over 1300 horsepower. However, AMG’s upcoming electric saloon is not just about raw power; it also promises practicality and style. The Vision 2025 concept gives us a glimpse into the future with its sleek design, which is expected to feature in the production model.

The new saloon will benefit from a novel slimline, energy-dense battery incorporating silicon anode material from Sila, a U.S.-based company, providing a 40% increase in energy density compared to conventional batteries. This innovation not only extends the range but also allows for more spacious interiors, adhering to AMG’s reputation for luxury and comfort.

With prototypes hitting the roads soon, this next-generation electric GT 63 replacement is poised to make a significant impact on the market, marrying AMG’s performance heritage with the latest in electric vehicle technology.
