Mercedes-Benz unveils new Mercedes Vision AMG electric concept car
Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the new Vision AMG electric concept in Nice. This car is interesting not only because Gordon Wagener himself worked on its design, but also because of its role in history: it will become the basis for the first mass-produced electric car from Mercedes-AMG.

Appearance assessment is usually very subjective, but it’s still hard to disagree with the fact that the appearance of the Vision AMG turned out to be at least unusual. This is the merit of the entire design team, which, working under the direction of Gordon Wagener, dressed the car in a very aerodynamic silhouette with an integrated partially retractable spoiler.
Other “know-how” of the new concept include headlights in the form of three-beam stars that mimic taillight exhaust pipes, cameras instead of the usual side mirrors and completely frameless doors, which, judging by the lack of handles, should open themselves.
The design of the 22-inch wheels with an aerodynamic pattern is inspired by the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 racing team, but Mercedes did not show the interior of the Vision AMG (perhaps it is not ready yet) – it is only known that it will be designed for four people, including the driver .
With a length of 5.1 meters and a wheelbase of more than three meters, the novelty from AMG is comparable in size to the serial Mercedes-Benz EQS liftback. The key difference here is only in height: due to the AMG.EA platform with a lower center of gravity, the concept turned out to be noticeably lower, which was also done for the sake of aerodynamics.
There are no details about the “technology”, but on the way “to the series” the car will receive the latest battery with a special anode and an increased level of energy exchange (the electric Gelendvagen will receive the same), as well as light and compact electric motors with axial flow, which Mercedes-AMG will borrow from the British firm Yasa.
The concept will turn into a serial five-door lift, similar in format to the current Mercedes-AMG GT or Porsche Taycan, only in 2025. Soon after, a whole family of powerful electric cars built on a single AMG.EA platform will be released.
