mercedes unveils vision AMG as all-electric performance car of the future

A silver arrow with tributes to the milestone-making VISION EQXX: the Mercedes Vision AMG offers an electrifying glimpse into the zero emission future of the driving performance brand. The concept car builds upon a dedicated AMG.EA platform in its mission to deliver the manufacturer’s famed characteristic power and dynamism in all-electric. A spectacular, smoothly sculpted form creates an exterior to match its predicted performance.

Sporty, smooth silver sculpture

 

A monolithic sculpture defines the Mercedes Vision AMG. Its flowing, aerodynamically advantageous teardrop form hints to that of the VISION EQXX. A clean-surfaced body accentuates its efficiency as joints and shut lines are reduced to a minimum. A long wheelbase, sharply raked A-pillar positioned far forward, a short front overhang and slightly longer rear overhang set its radical proportions. There’s a low-lying silhouette as the roof tapers elegantly rearwards into a spoiler, where a broad, muscular shoulders add to its distinct sports car-look.

The Vision AMG shows in spectacular style what electrification could look like at Mercedes-AMG, while staying true to the brand aesthetic. The study’s extreme proportions create fascination and passion for performance – that’s what AMG is all about. The Vision AMG is an impressive embodiment of the brand’s dual polarity – the interplay of beauty and the extraordinary. At the same time, elements from the future, such as the light signatures with the illuminated high-tech grille, underscore the progressive evolution of our design language of Sensual Purity,‘ says Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer of Mercedes-Benz Group AG, at the debut of the concept car.

Up front, the car is instantly recognizable as an AMG; the brand-specific grille time-travels into the future with illuminated, vertical bars on the sharply chiselled shark nose. On either side, the striking headlamp signatures take the form of the stylized Mercedes star, connected visually via a horizontal band of light that shoots across above the grille. The rear spoiler’s thin edge is framed by another precisely cut stripe of LED. Below, three cylindrical tube-like rings of light contrast with the deep black diffusers.

Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Design cues

 

The sports car is revealed as a four-door coupe, subtle owing to its super smooth surfaces. Alubeam silver paintwork bathes the whole exterior body, stretching in a large-format star pattern across the shoulders, rear and side windows. The color – a reference to the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team – further hints to the high-performance nature of the car. The Petronas blue continues to visually accent the design: the exposed carbon fiber, 22-inch wheels, AMG logo and elements on sills and diffuser.

With its contrasting modern surfacing and radical proportions, this car showcases the next design step, building on the VISION EQXX and moving further towards performance luxury. The seamless flow of beautifully formed surfaces and the monolithic sculpture complete the powerful aesthetic of the Vision AMG. The result is an electric supercar, a style icon that stimulates desire – and that’s exactly what sets a luxury sports car apart,‘ concludes Gorden Wagener.
