Mercedes-Benz trademarked several AMG EQ designations. The premium car company thus confirms that there will be electric AMGs.
Mercedes-Benz has already trademarked the EQE 43, EQE 53 and EQE 63 designations. The EQE will be the electric variant of the E-Class Sedan. The model sits on the new EVA (Electric Vehicle Architecture) platform. Unofficial sources claim that Mercedes will register three more designations in the near future.
Filing these designations with the European Union Intellectual Property Office, the premium car company is thus taking all the necessary legal steps to secure the nameplates. So we can expect to see AMG variants with zero emissions.
It is yet early to anticipate how much power each of the variants will benefit from. One thing is safe to indicate. The AMG EQE 43 will be the entry level variant. Meanwhile, the AMG EQE 63 will go for the top-of-the-range position. In order to avoid cannibalization with the AMG EQS 43, 53 and 63 models, Mercedes will have to grant them with less power. The EQE and the EQS will both spawn SUV variants. But it is yet unknown if they will get the AMG monikers as well.
Mercedes-Benz sets out big electrification plans and expectations
Mercedes also considers offering the G-Class with an electric powertrain, without compromising on the abilities of the iconic off-roader. The premium car maker is also working on a new AMG top-of-the-range with an electrified powertrain. Its designation might be AMG GT 73, but the name is yet to be confirmed. It will come with the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 and an electric motor for an output somewhere around 800 horsepower.
Mercedes is still working on its first hypercar, the ONE, with over 1,000 horsepower. Deliveries of the Formula One-inspired model, already delayed, should start next year.
The EQXX is also in the cards. Mercedes-Benz has already teased the model with a record-breaking range. It is expected to travel 1,200 kilometers approximately on a single charge.
