It has been a few years since the rumors came Mercedes-AMG C63 Equipped with hybrid engine. This information was confirmed by one of the manufacturer’s superiors at the time. However, Mercedes-Benz has confirmed that this hybrid approach will consist of 4-cylinders, thereby halving the number of cylinders compared to the Outgoing C63 model.
The combination of the 4-cylinder with the electric motor, however, allows the C63 AMG to continue to display adequate power. Although exact figures have not been released, knowledge sources have confirmed that at least 500 horsepower can be expected. In comparison, the current C63 469 horsepower is spit out with its twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, while the C63S version replaces the hundred with 503 horsepower. Like the current models, the new C63 uses a 9-speed automatic transmission designed by Mercedes-Benz.
Contrary to what one might think, this performance version becomes a hybrid and not a plug-in hybrid. This newest technology will be offered in more worker versions without switching to AMGs. Other versions of the C-Class in Canada use 4-cylinders with 48-volt lightweight hybrid technology. This is exclusive to the next entry level C300, which has a power of 250 horsepower. Ancestor of the C-Class – 190 This is the first time a 6-cylinder engine has been offered.
These efforts are to make the new C-Class more powerful and less polluting. This is a strategy similar to the one used by Volvo since 2016.
Among other features, the new generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class uses a larger touchscreen as seen in the new generation S-Class. It combines digital instrumentation, head-up display and other enhanced technologies. Road handling will be taken to another level with new suspensions, a more robust chassis and, for some versions, four-wheel steering.
While the official images have not been revealed, we can expect the style of the recent S-Class or even the stylistic changes that the E-Class received this year. The car will be officially unveiled later this year and production is expected to start by the end of 2021. At this time, there is no information confirming that the cart will return to Canada.
