The Mercedes Vision AMG concept has been announced as an electric sports car

Mercedes-AMG recently announced that it is building a platform on which high-performance EVs can be built. Gordon Wagner, chief designer of Mercedes-Benz, has released a sketch that looks like a preview of one of the battery-powered cars in this architecture.

Posting on Instagram, the executive released a photo that outlines a low-slang concept called Vision AMG. We are tempted to say that we are looking at a coupe; We’d be surprised if it’s a four-door sedan, but more crazy things have happened. What is certain is that the silhouette features the proportions we usually associate with a supercar: a short front edge, a racked windshield and a long rear edge. Speaking of which, the rear end is reminiscent of the EQXX concept, which suggests that aerodynamics has played a big role in the shape of the car.

Don’t expect to find a mid-mounted engine under the sheet metal. Official details are few and far between, but Wagner clearly identifies the Vision AMG as an “all-electric performance show car.” The platform is not scheduled to enter production until 2025, so Mercedes-AMG has time to fine-tune the concept’s drivetrain – assuming it moves toward production, which has not been confirmed. It may be merely a design study.

It is too early to say what will differentiate AMG’s electric platform from the one used by Mercedes-Benz. Full details will be released on May 19, when both Architecture and Vision AMG concepts will make their debut.
