Mercedes-AMG left us speechless on the discovery of its new electric attack. It is very clear that the sportiest arm of Mercedes is that the future lies in the electric motor And in the use of smaller heat engines, that’s why The next Mercedes-AMG C63 will arrive at 644 hp combining a 2.0 turbocharged engine with an electric turbocharger and a new electric drive system. Most purists can get their hands on the lead, but the truth is that AMG promises to put its 6 or 8-cylinder variants on the ropes.
It is irreparable, all new AMG will be hybrids to a greater or lesser degree
Starting with the same technology used in Formula 1, Mercedes-AMG has decided to create a new C63 capable of combining different electrical formulas to support the 421 hp 2.0 turbo engine (M 139). That debuted the Mercedes-AMG A45. This means we found three different approaches to powertrain electrification, and combined them all to provide a combined maximum power It will reach 644 hp. The system will take the name E PERFORMANCE.
First of all, it uses Mercedes-AMG a An engine generator acts as a starter motor and an alternator in a gasoline engine, The ability to assist with 14 hp of power in acceleration and offer a more efficient stop-and-start system for the fan when it comes to reducing consumption and emissions. In second place we find the great-grandmother, A. An electrified turbocharger Already developed in 2020 with specialist Garrett, a technology that will be put into mass production for the first time by AMG. This idea managed to incorporate a 6 kW electric motor into the turbocharger shaft, thus being able to eliminate the response time And to allow the pressure of the gases to continue regardless of the propulsion system. The German manufacturer designed the system to achieve an immediate response, using a combined 400-volt geometry with the engine’s generator, thus ensuring the turbocharger was able to adapt its operation to the full range of fan revolutions, and reach speed. 156,000 rpm.
The use of a true electric turbo is a milestoneSo far, the most we’ve seen are applications like the Volkswagen Group’s electric compressor, a system that helps conventional turbochargers at low revs to reduce response time under these conditions. With the Mercedes solution, a priori, the required autonomous operation of the turbocharger with respect to the propeller will be achieved.
Finally, the third form of electrification designed by Mercedes-AMG, is the A rear axle integrated into an electric motor is capable of delivering up to 201 hp and 320 Nm. This electric motor will complement the heat engine, including A. Two-speed transmission To achieve maximum acceleration at speeds of less than 140 km / h, and the best consumption / performance ratio from that speed. To operate the fully electric assistance system, AMG a 6.1 kWh Li-ion battery Capacity that receives code HPB80, capable of delivering 94 hp (70 kW) of constant power and 201 hp of maximum power for 8 seconds (150 kW)
