Mercedes-AMG Vision all-electric concept sports car revealed
Mercedes-AMG has revealed the Vision AMG all-electric concept car. The vehicle will be built on the AMG.EA platform, which is currently being developed. The sports car's design enhances the look of the VISION EGXX with a more luxurious finish.
Both the side and rear windows are painted silver to match the car's body, providing what Mercedes describes as "the impression of a monolithic sculpture". The vehicle has many design features for aerodynamic optimisation.
Brand new parts have been used, including a dedicated high-voltage battery and "revolutionary" drive technology. The Vision AMG is powered by an Axial Flux Motor, developed by Mercedes subsidiary YASA. The company claims that the motor is more powerful and lighter than the radial flux motors currently used in Mercedes EVs.
The Vision AMG's headlights are formed of three LED elements shaped as the Mercedes star and connected via a horizontal band. You can display various animations in the light band, such as a welcome signature.
At the rear are round lights formed of three LED rings in cylindrical tubes, and the vehicle has 22-in wheels with aero claddings. The battery pack sits considerably lower in this four-door sports car than in the EQS, allowing plenty of space for four occupants.
AMG.EA will be one of three EV platforms Mercedes plans to launch in 2025, with the MB.EA for medium to large vehicles and Van.EA for commercial vehicles. These platforms will help the company achieve its goal of having an all-electric line-up in certain markets by 2030.
