Seven drive modes are offered with the new S63-Electric, Comfort, Battery Hold, Sport, Sport+, Slippery, and Individual.
Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the much-anticipated 2023 AMG S63 E Performance, their next electric vehicle, which comes with a hybridised V8 engine. AMG will replace both the S63 V8 and S65 V12 models that have traditionally been among the sedans at the top of its S-class lineup with this single electrified version, which has more power and torque than both its predecessors.
Delving more into the powertrain details, the S63 integrates the electric motor with an electronic limited-slip differential and its two-speed transmission, just like the GT 4-Door and C-Class AMGs before it. The nine-speed automatic transmission is bolted to the gas engine. The powertrain's combined peak output is 780bhp, and its maximum torque is 1430Nm. Out of those totals, the V8 generates 595bhp, while the electric motor can provide up to 184bhp briefly. Between 2500rpm and 4500rpm, the V8's 900Nm of torque is accessible, with the electric motor contributing 320Nm. This accelerates the vehicle from 0 to 100km/h in an estimated 3.3 seconds.
Coming to the interiors, there is seating inside for four people. Dedicated displays for the AMG and hybrid powertrain features have been added to the MBUX infotainment system. Also common is a head-up display. The customers can choose from four braking recuperation settings using the steering wheel controls.
In comparison to a standard S-Class, the S 63 E Performance looks slightly more aggressive. On the tip of the nose, the AMG logo is painted in a blend of chrome and black. Large apertures may be seen on the ends of the lower fascia. Four trapezoidal exhaust tips are located at the back, and a diffuser runs in the middle of them.
The production of the 2023 Mercedes-AMG S63 E Performance will commence in 2023. Meanwhile, the cost of the new sedan has not yet been revealed by the carmaker.
