The Next Mercedes-AMG C 63 Will Be A 600HP+ PHEV

Mercedes-Benz announced a few months ago that the V8 engine was essentially dead for the North American market in 2022. A few months before that, AMG told the world about what the next C 63 S was going to do without the V8 and, in its stead, it will be powered by a plug-in hybrid 4-cylinder powertrain. Despite the somewhat disappointing news, the promised 600+ horsepower output should make it an easy pill to swallow.

This news was predictable and has been confirmed by Autocar: The next-generation Mercedes-AMG E 63 S will also be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine with plug-in hybrid technology.
