The #Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance fastback was introduced today in India by Mercedes-performance Benz’s car division for a price of Rs 3.30 crore (ex-showroom). In the Indian market, it is the brand’s first plug-in hybrid AMG. Being innovators in the automotive industry, the business launched the plug-in hybrid GT 63 S E Performance in the nation after the all-electric AMG EQS.
Performance GT 63 S E Its AMG power comes from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine delivering 640bhp, which is more than enough to produce F1 safety car-like speed and accuracy. The E in the name refers to an electric motor positioned on the back axle, which produces an additional 204bhp. The total performance is 831bhp/1400Nm, giving you a 0-100kmph time of 2.9 seconds and an unrestricted peak speed of 316kmph (where applicable). The rear-mounted electric motor is linked to a two-speed transmission, allowing electric torque to be sent to all four wheels, thereby making this an AWD vehicle. It has a 12km all-electric range and a peak speed of 130kmph in full electric mode.
The AMG GT 63 S E Performance is distinguished by slight external design modifications, such as a reworked front bumper inspired by the two-door AMG GT, new exhaust outlets, and a distinctive new design for the 20-inch or 21-inch alloy wheels. Also, the sedan has a charging port flap on the back bumper. Aside from these differences, the GT 63 S 4-door coupe and the PHEV 4-door coupe appear similar. The inside of the AMG GT 63 S E Performance is similar to the outside.
The super sedan, like previous Mercedes PHEV vehicles, provides drivers with hybrid-specific information like as an EV range indicator, real-time power consumption statistics, and an electric motor power gauge via the MBUX infotainment system. Drivers may also improve the sound quality in the cabin by switching between ‘balanced’ and ‘strong’ using the controls in the center console or on the steering wheel.
The sole significant alternative to this automobile is the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, which costs Rs 3.30 crore. But, further Maserati and Jaguar models are on the way.
