Mercedes-Benz on Thursday unveiled a concept car that looks at the electric future of its AMG brand.

The Vision AMG concept is an elegant electric four-door coupe, backed by the AMG.EA platform, one of three special EV architectures that Mercedes plans to introduce around 2025. This is also the time when we should see AMG’s first production model based on this architecture.

This concept is clearly reminiscent of the concept of the Vision EQXX from the parent brand Mercedes, which recently completed Travel 626 miles on a single charge in the form of a prototype. Vision EQXX is moving to completely different technologies, including the potential for air-cooled batteries– hardly in the play EV.

Mercedes did not discuss air-cooled batteries or many other technical details, but said Vision AMG uses axial motors from a wholly owned subsidiary of Yasa. These engines produce more power in a more compact body than other engine designs, Mercedes claims.

The Vision AMG also gets some style features that go beyond aerodynamic efficiency. It has cabin proportions in the rear of classic sports cars, six large round taillights mounted around the rear diffuser, and headlights in the shape of a three-pointed Mercedes star. Lighting strips create the illusion of a grille, which is otherwise absent.

AMG already has some experience with electric vehicles. Recall that in 2014 it released a limited production of the SLS AMG Electric Drive sports car. Based on the petrol SLS AMG it had 740 liters.

Now Mercedes plans to make AMG electric as part of the overall goal of switching to fully electric at least in some markets by 2030. AMG has already released a version future EQE sedanincluding its own engine design as well as a customized EQS sedan.

AMG’s built-in hybrids also speak to its performance quite differently, with Formula 1 battery technology and a special 2-speed transmission.
